Default ESC Motor Limit of Tamtech Gear GB01

Anyone know what is the motor turn limit for the Tamiya TEU-102BKs that comes with the GB01s? I've read the instructions from head to toe but can't find anything about how low this thing would go. Would it be able to take a continuous run from a 1600Mah NiMh pack if a 21 turn motor is used?

Tamiya Tamtech stock motoer, and Tamtech Sport motor. Temperature will depend on your driving style and terrain. Best bet is to keep it in an area that will allow air to pass over it, which is true of all ESCs.

I put a 21T brushed motor on this thing and it goes like crazy. On full acceleration, the slipper slips for a full sec, it takes off and disappears in an instant. 3-4 secs later, the tiny little car is almost out of sight. The motor gets really hot but not the ESC. The manual says it has heat protection circuitry so hopefully I don't fry the ESC.

Stock drivetrain is to be expected from Tamiya. It will serve mosts interests. I will not take the abuse of repeated crashes or hard bashing.

Best upgrades for the drivetrain are:
3Racing shocks
3Racing hubs
3Racing knuckes
3Racing hexes
3Racing axles
3Racing gearbox case
Tamiya alum tie rods
Tamiya alum pinions
Tamiya heat sink motor plate
Tamiya carbon shock towers

I'm running Mamba Micro Pro with 5400 Kv motor, 2S 1300 mAh 25C LiPo. This is a pretty fun combo, not too fast, not too slow. I'm currently running stock drivetrain, except for for a metal 18 tooth pinion gear (RC18 pinions from Robinson Racing work fine). The stock plastic Diff output joints/cups seem to wearing pretty quick though, so I have the metal hop-ups from Tamiya on standby. Definately recommend oil-filled dampers especially if you're trying to run this off road. I also think the hardened suspension pins are an upgrade you should think about doing. Bumper set provides some nice protection for the suspension components.

I took the ESC out of the tamtech to use as a temporary stop-gap in my Durga, it has no problems running an 18 double brushed motor, providing that it has air flow. the first time I didnt have an air hole, and the heat protection kicked in (yep, it works) but after putting a whole in the body, it will dry up an entire 3000mah battery without overheating.

Yep, awesome buggy the Durga, my first kit car! I've got a 7.5t Brushless in there now , next is a brushless for my GB02 and then my bro can have this esc for the HPI E-10.

Certainly can. well it can take an 18D GVM V8 Brushed 540 Modified, there not exactly top of the line. So it should handle a 14t-18t micro I'd say, with decent airflow tho

Next is a brushless for my GB02
What brushless combo are u thinking of getting mate? I've gotten used to the speed of the brushed motor now and want something faster so I'm considering a brushless combo too. Something that'll give 40-50000rpm on a 7.2NiMh so that means about 6000kV, not extreme but decent. U reckon the gears will be able to handle that? What Pinions are u using mate?
