RE: slash w/ stock xl-5 esc, 3s 123 battery, 27t motor

I am running 3s a123 not lipo, so be careful if you want to try lipo. I also don't know anything about the xl10 or even my own xl-5 esc for that matter :)

RE: slash w/ stock xl-5 esc, 3s 123 battery, 27t motor

I wouldn't be too worried about running a 3s life pack with the stock motor or any higher turn motor. My esc doesn't even get warm and I have 5+ runs of 10-15 minutes each.

Ran the car this...

RE: slash w/ stock xl-5 esc, 3s 123 battery, 27t motor

You've inspired me to try again. Tested another 27 turn motor and this one ran fine so I installed it in the slash. It spins the wheels quick enough off the ground. A bit too late to make much...

RE: slash w/ stock xl-5 esc, 3s 123 battery, 27t motor

I have so many 27 turn motors sitting around that I'd like to see how this combo will work. I've already run the xl-5 with the stock titan motor a few times with 3s a123 cells so that is no problem....

RE: Slash Gears Stripping?

I don't run a slash but I also have a mamba max w/4600 and 3s a123 (9.9v) on a rustler. Maybe the heat of the motor at 180+ degrees after 20 minutes of running makes the spur softer, which deforms...
