    well, gotta get another esc, neighbors kids broke it.

    duct tape works wonders


    Jackedman almost sounds like the motor was defective. I think one of our other members had a similar issue on a diff RC, and it turned out that one of the motors leads were not making good contact

    I miss my old cars, sometimes I wish I had not sold them. My son and I used to have lots of fun.

    hmm maybe the lipos aren't up to snuff to power it then as the initial power draw is actually higher then when its moving.

    RE: OFFICIAL RC18MT/B/T THREAD

    Is it stock gearing?
    Have you checked the drive train, by disengaging the motor from the spur and try rolling the car and see if there is any binding.

    RE: OFFICIAL RC18MT/B/T THREAD

    Some cogging is normal in certain setups. Maybe it's your gearing.
    Oh.... you said you upgraded the esc. What esc are you using? A poor esc can definitely cause cogging.

    RE: OFFICIAL RC18MT/B/T THREAD

    Try a different esc and see what happens. If you only have a lower amp esc, just try it for easy driving and see if it coggs.

    well for a quick test it would work to see if it cogs at the start I wouldn't do much with it though outside a fast test

    btw you can try a higher amp esc if you have a ground based one

    RE: OFFICIAL RC18MT/B/T THREAD

    It is definetly a problem between the esc and motor. Some cheap motors will cause the cogging also. I'm betting that a better esc will take care of the problem.
    There are quite a few nice turnigy escs out there.

    Im thinking that is the problem. the cash flow is all called for at this point in time but i was thinking of getting the 18amp trackstar esc for it and go from there once i have some money again.

    RE: OFFICIAL RC18MT/B/T THREAD

    Hi,


    I am planning to buy an RC18-B2 but have almost made the decision to go kit form (RC18-T2/B2). Depending on advice I may sway to the RTR.


    ~ Can anyone advise whether I can use my CC Mamba MMB25-CM2068 and ESC ?

    and if so....

    ~ What battery arrangement I can get away with ?

    ~ What servo should I go for ?



    I cannot find any threads with this combination. This could save a small fortune on sourcing a new brushless motor. I intent to use my existing 2.4Ghz Tx and buy an additional Rx

    Many thanks
    Dan

    RE: OFFICIAL RC18MT/B/T THREAD

    It will work and should be a good powerful esc/motor. I run a hitec servo. I can't give good advise on a battery. I run the turnigy 800 mah 2s packs I got with my truck but you could use something double that size.

    RE: OFFICIAL RC18MT/B/T THREAD

    After a roughly 20 year hiatusfrom R/C, I picked up a RC18T2 Brushless RTR. Ibought some Duratrax DTX 1600 battery packs for it and was wondering if anyone on here knows where I can order an adapter that will connect the male mini connector on the Duratrax battery packto the male Dean's plug that is stock on the RC18T2. Ihave zero tools or technical savvy to make one myself so I really hope one exists.

    I gotta hand it to Associated on this thing, it is an engineering masterpiece and has come a long way from my gold chassis RC10 from back in the day and the price deflation is amazing - $200 fully RTR with a full set of ball bearings would have been unheard of 20 years ago.

    Thanks for any help.
