    RE: Steering shuts down velineon?

    I think I know why now. I tried to use my stock traxxas 3500 on 3s w/13t pinion and a sidewinder. Traxxas gearchart shows its good for 45mph. No biggie. I just put in a sidewinder....

    RE: Steering shuts down velineon?

    Maybe I had a bad 30c battery? Not sure how it could cause it but Ive found the prob goes away 2s or 3s 25c. Maybe the bigger batts supply too much current? Doesnt make sense to me but its all I can...

    RE: Steering shuts down velineon?

    RE: Need Heatsink/Fan for Slash 4x4

    RE: Steering shuts down velineon?

    One faulty ESC maybe but 2 I doubt it. Servos run cool, esc doesnt cut out, and steering doesnt cut out, on 2s- only 3s, on 2 vehicles w/ the same setup. Ill just go back to 2s I guess.

    RE: Why are glow plugs still from the 1800's

    Nitro also needs a red hot glowing coil(not aspark)to provide bang. Even if they could be made to last a lifetimethey would get fouled outfrom all thefilth.Spark plugs are for gasoline.
