Default Mini LST

I am looking to get a mini lst. But I want to make sure that other 1/18 scale motors will work with the stock esc. Will two of these http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXJJG3&P=ML work with out the esc failing? Are there any other esc that can work with two motors? And what pinion/spur should I start with? And please suggest any motors that would work better. I do not want to go brushless. Thanks for any help.

They would work, but those arent exactly the best choices for a mini lst. You really want two micro mods such as the URC Krystal or Beast Raptor, or Trinity Cobalt. Dual Krystals work fine with the stock ESC.

OK, I looked for the motors you suggested but all I could find was this one http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXLPV1&P=RF . Will two of these work with the stock esc? Were could I find the URC Krystal motors, I couldn't find them. Which would you think is the best at speed and acceleration.

17t is the lowest I know of that the ESC can handle.
The Krystal can be found at
www.unitedrc.com
The Raptor can be found in the one18th shop at
www.one18th.com

I have a few more questions. Why would the mini max motors I suggested first not be that good of a choice? And dose Trinity Cobalt motors come in 17 turn, I only found 16 turn and that wouldn't work, right?

The motors you posted wouldnt please you, you would be better off buying the Insanes then those. I went brushless, and its cost me less then a nice brushed system so Im happy.

OK, I think I am going with the Trinity Cobalt 16 turn motors or I am going brushless. What ESC should I get to use dual Cobalts? Thanks for the help.

To use dual cobalts you will have to get a no limit ESC such as one by Novak. That paired with the motors and your spending over $50 more then brushless.

Well that settles that, when I get my mini lst I am going brushless. This is what I have in mind http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXHAH9&P=RF . What pinion/spur should I get? Will this fit right in, what else would I need? Is there a different system you would suggest?

I would NEVER run a mamba in the MLST, go to www.b-p-p.com and find a motor you like besides mamba. You want 370 or 380 size.

Wow there is alot of misinformation in this thread.

You can run 2 cobalts off the stock esc. Running 2 of the 14t motors will cause thermal shutdown so if you wanted to run the 14t's I'd suggest a better esc however it doesn't have to be a no limit esc. Any cheap 1/10 scale esc will do.

Let me tell you there isn't much difference between running one cobalt or two. That's why I run a single 14t cobalt. $40 bucks for the motor & on the track it would hang with any bl setup you could throw at it.

I thought any 1/10 ESC would work, but then I saw people running no limit ESC's with their cobalts so I figured you needed a no limit.

Any 1/10 esc will work...its all in how you wire them up. The # turns on these 300 size motors is not comparable to 540 cans. The stock esc is heck of alot better then a spy.

on my stock esc i have improved the contact between the heatsink and the fets that its supposed to be cooling... hotter heatsink, cooler fets... maybe this will mean that my esc is slightly better than stock now

Hey Inverted why would you not run a mamba system? I've heard them to be good.

The mamba is made to replace size 300 motor applications. Many users have burnt up their motor as the truck's size puts too much load on it. Stick with a 370/380 size motor. Anything from B-P-P, other then a mamba would work well.

OK, that makes sense. With these brushless motors do you have problems with the diffs wearing/striping?
