the stock motor can't handle 3s at least in my experience. I ran mine with a 3s 20c 1600mah turnigy lipo and suddenly the car had a grinding sound. At first, I thought it was the diffs but check them and everything was fine. Ran the motor and I think it seized? I'm not an expert but it think it has something to do with the magnet? or it ran too hot?
Here what's left of it. Tried to cut the can to remove the stuck motor mount..
I can't remove the motor mount, it think they placed red Loctite in the motor screws
I'll be temporary using my son's Tacon Thriller for now.
While the buggy's ESC was put into good use today.
Sprayed it with plastidip to make it water resistant
then installed it on his new FE boat which had a crappy ESC that only lasted for 3 runs. Just ordered a hobbywing seaking 35a ESC as a replacement but wife not too happy.
Anyway, I'll be using this the Tacon's ESC to run 3s lipo with a outrunner motor.
I hope it can handle 3s. Tried it earlier with 2s and it didn't get hot inside hull.
