    Why does the Vekta have such small tires in Comparison with the rest of it?

    BRP is best tires, 196mm height, very light and less rotation mass I noticed on Xmaxx using MadMax 220mm itís worthless, less run time and more parts can break only benefit is higher ground clearance and it looks cool ))

    I can use MX43, MTXL Monster Claws and my new Xmaxx wheel is I want.. problem is not many wheels can handle 15s power! 60V 20A is lethal...

    Many use Maxxis Trepadors 240mm height, huge and very cool but will not last long Iím waiting for BRP 4" slicks I can try spike tires on Xmaxx later

    To show you inside )

    I removed the Hudy 8.4V fans, only use heatsink now to try the difference... You can see how I connected the fans in earlier post, I donít have photos left to show you..

    ZTW ESC 300A soon in Xmaxx with TP5860 just bought it... I hope this will solve low voltage under load together with new SLS Speed Limited edition lipoís, or I change the motor to Lehner 3060...

    No surgery is fun, get well...

    Ok ) I will try ZTW and see... I started to open the front for more air flow, will add black net and make inside to direct the air toward ESC... New air intakes on sides inside as well coming, I might add 3 x 60 mm fans on top if needed )

    I also regret 1440kv/ 441A, should have gone 800kv or Lehner3050/60...

    I see light in the tunnel, exit for hot air...

    Iím trying ZTW 300A Max5 feels like stock now ))
    I need to modify the top brace, prefer to drill new holes to make it wider than try to cut in the top brace... if I use the dark top cover I will need to cut hole for the fan to be in same level ) I have new 4s lipoís I want to try first, after 12s

    I bought this top brace to try, many selling them...
    You can make it yourself (I should have) 3/8 aluminum 6 feet for 15$ I saw people doing themselves... I will try to make it wider to fit ZTW or I will make a new my self

    I can say it feels very strong and itís worth making it.

    Yea, how's the ESC to motor wires for you? They get warm any? I'm using 6.5mm connectors and thinking I need to upgrade them to 8mm lol

    I only noticed Max5 ESC getting warm, not the connectors... Iím planning to replace it soon )

    I drove it on gravel, aluminum need protection, used scratch free silicone 3mm to make something fast ) no issues for steering or suspension

    ZTW 300A )) it runs perfect I modified the top bar, made it wider. I need longer screws and distances to lower it more.. I will try without the silicone cover first, modify it more and try after as well, submarine

    How are you gonna secure all those contraptions, and how much of a pain will it be to get the batteries out?

    [QUOTE=Gripdog7205;6512992]How are you gonna secure all those contraptions, and how much of a pain will it be to get the batteries out?


    I will use a plate to attach the air intake over the motor, direct air down from the top with a tube/scoop , modify the body to make it fit together putting it on is the idea ))

    To Install batteries is no problem, just lift the silicone sides up to access... I’m making magnetic trays and steel plate on the side of lipo not to use straps, will see if it works ))
