    Question 12S with two 22,6V batteries with X-Maxx?

    Im not gonna try it https://stockholm.reservdelsrc.com/p...2v-5200mah-45c

    But I am curious have anyone tried 10S or 12S, what kind of ESC and motor would be needed?

    The castle 2028 is 12S IIRC.

    It would probably leave a flaming trail on its way to 88mph and then time travel back to 1885. Or thereabouts.

    You can be a part of the Traxxas secret historical record and take the claim for the design of the current X-Maxx.

    Only ESC I know of that is supposed to handle 12s+ is the MGM ones Kershaw sells. Can maybe buy them elsewhere but they are rated for 15s. Pretty pricey though, $669 for the smaller one of the two.

    There are these: http://alienpowersystem.com/shop/esc...-car-esc-opto/

    Some say they are fine, but I think some have had a few issues - might be wrong.
    Bit of a 'Marmite' reception to them.

    The Castle 2028 will take 12S without issue. The speed control, either Alien (heard good things) or yes, go big and get the MGM. You can get them custom made or yes from Kershaw and others. Only issue with the Alien is it's massive.

    What comes to mind is. remember when Forrest Gump is running down the lane from the bullies, and his braces start flying apart, metal bits start flying out in all directions. Thats what I imagine.

    there was a fella over on RCTech that was building a 16s x-maxx. yeah, 59 volts lol. I think the project has since fizzled out but he did post a video of a 10s test run.
