Step 1: Find Your Cars Make And Model

Ok there are many different kinds of RC brands and cars. I have a Traxxas Stampede and I will recommend Traxxas to anyone. If you need parts try your local hobby shop. MY FAVORITE ONE IS www.larrys-rc.com or Larry's RC.
Hi, I was just reading on your solusions on cooling down the esc/motor temps. I have a stampede that I am hopping up, I run tires/wheels off the wheely king for better grip, I have installed integy front/rear ext. upper/lower control arms, steel driveshafts, alum. hub carriers, steering blocks, & casters. I had a castle es3/5700kv motor laying around so I put it in the truck(it hauls) planning to install alum.chassis plate, gearbox, bulkhead, skids,& shock towers over time. With this esc/motor in it it to shuts down alot, the motor gets really hot (not sure of temp)it has the 90t spur & I have a 22t spur in it now, if I loosen the slipper it gets so hot it accually melted the gearbox. I have a fan on the motor but doesn't seem to cool it down enough! Is this motor not a good fit for this truck or would it just be that it is geared wrong? Thanks, James
Hi james.<br>You have a very powerfull motor in your stampede. Do you use your stampede on grass or tarmac, if you use it on grass you need to get a diffrent motor as a motor with such high kv is meant for tarmac only. You should also check your gear mesh. A gear mesh to tight will create alot of heat and resistance (watch a youtube video. On how to set gear mesh. Make sure your slipper clutch isnt too loose, when you do a hard accelaration you should hear the slipper slip for about 2 meters. If none of that works consider your gearing ratio.<br>
<p>I am running brushed motor with a 46t main and a 16t spur, any suggestions as i cant change the 46 as this is my only option with this truck.</p>
<p>Hey I have a Dromida MT4.18 and the engine is a Dromida M370. Any advice for me? Appreciate it.</p>
Cool I just upgraded and it is running real cool
Most rc goers don't really have brush motors anymore it more leaning over to brushless motors and also If you also want to find out what kind of battery that your using and what kv is the motor so thus make shure that your car can handle it and that's not enough you always add a fan to your esc ad a heatsink to your motor to keep it cooler in the summers
No problem
Thank you for this. <br>
