i do not understand, plz see this discussion
where a 2s 5000mah lipo was recommended. by nitrosportsandrunner.
so now this battery is the problem??
please, i just want to have some fun, without spending too much money.
what is the solution?
thats my bad...in that thread I thought you had an epx pro (brushless version) which will take a 2s lipo no problem. The brushed version's esc cant handle as much voltage.
you could grab this esc for $25
I know it says its from a rock crawler, but the losi 12t esc has 4 driving modes, one of which is for rock crawling. The other modes are for normal driving and its the same ESC that comes in the losi short course truck. It will handle the stock motor and a 2s lipo no problem. It also has low voltage detection...so no risk of overdraining your lipo battery.
ALSO, have you checked the car since running it last? I think that esc has a thermal shutdown (will stop working if it overheats, but work again after it cools)
If you have the stock batt, use it to check and see if the truck works now.
If not, the losi 12t esc...or a traxxas xl-5 will work.
