    Fried esc after running badlands. Upgrade options for esc and motor please

    Had the truck for a few months now and have ran it hard a lot and no problems till I installed badlands. Running truck for approx 10 mins in 60 degree weather and it stops running, now the lights on esc flash. Whatís my best option for esc upgrade and motor? I figure if Iím upgrading esc I should go ahead and make it faster. Any websites with a package deal for motor, esc, gears and brackets?

    I run a HW Max5 and Leopard 5898 1100 kv motor, geared 37/46 with Badlands. Itís pretty unstoppable.


    Somehow builds are never done....

    Seems like a pretty good deal for a complete kit, I might have to get one. Any idea what speed it would be capable? How hard is it to solder traxxas ends on esc?

    If you have a good iron not too hard I would suggest changing to xt90 or ec5
    My truck that has a similar set up( mostly stock but motor esc upgrade) I hit 50 or so
