    Depends. You didn't list the cell count of the pack. Dependent on the cell count it may or may not work. You need to know the voltage capability of the motor and esc and then compare that to your...

    Sorry can't help you with the esc programming, but the thin red cable is most likely an anti spark lead. You connect it before hooking up the main red lead of the battery to the esc.

    Maybe, maybe not. You still have to follow the rules even if it's a car motor. Kv rating will determine the prop size, dependent on the pack cell count.
    If it's a real high kv you'll have to run a...

    Other then the KV rating, really nothing. Heck way back when I ran a car motor on one of my Strykers. Kyosho Magnetic Mayhem on a PZ Stryker, it was a beast.

    Hmm, hadn't seen the Traxxas versions before. Looks like they took a little from Deans and a little from the EC3/5 plugs to come up with another option.

    Deans was the one for a long time, but...

    I looked a little deeper too, seems Jeff had his design "borrowed" by a Korean company back in 2004 and there were counterfeit versions popping up.

    It's magic. Actually it's normal. If you take the leads from a brushless motor and touch them together you will find it's harder to spin by hand then if the leads aren't touching.

    Yeah it's a miracle anything makes it unscathed in a cardboard box anymore. It's so hit or miss with the way packages get handled, so you need to package for the worst case scenario. And why a lot...

    Not a sickness, just thinking big. Easier to work on.
    A tip, don't forget the M5 Stuart for a quick fix. You can pick them up fairly cheap, and they are nothing to convert over to 2.4.

    Did you check to make sure the 9's were switched to DSM2. Also make sure you are at least a couple of feet away from the rx with the tx when binding. I have a couple of the Oranges, but on a few I...
