"I replaced my stock Reedy brushed motor in my SC10 with this one, and my truck is really fast, and has a lot of power, great upgrade from brushed to brushless. "
Recommended to buy: Yes
i was thinking about putting this in my Traxxas Stampede 2wd What battery combination would you recommend it has 90T spur gear and a 19T pinion gear we are going to the dunes this summer so i wanted your guys opinion
That should provide plenty of power with a 2s lipo but if you wanted to get a bit more out of it you should be able to run a 3s with out any issues just keep an eye on your temperatures.
How fast will this go inside of a Traxxas slash 2wd
This all depends on your gear ratio and what battery pack you're using, with the right gearing and pack you should be able to get about 70 or more out of it, just keep an eye on your temperatures.
will this fit the 1/16 slash. do I need any other things to attach it
This will fit the 1/16th Slash if it is the newer model that has the 12t Titan motor in it. You will need to solder the battery plug wire on and then trim the chassis to make the ESC fit but it is an easy installation.
Does this system require programming?
The ESC does come pre programmed with the factory default settings which can be changed but don't need to be as long as the settings match your application. The ESC will have to have the battery plug of your choice soldered on and then calibrated to your transmitter but other than that you should be set. Programming and setting it up is real easy and it will come with an easy instruction sheet with all the info needed.
will a duratrax 7.2v 5000mah battery work for this I just had my old axial esc go out but i have 4 of these batteries and would like it if i did not need to buy more
Yes those packs will work with this combo just fine.
Whats the rated speeds this motor has run?
This depends on the RC you put it in along with what battery and gear ratio is used. With a 3S in a 2WD RC with it geared tall you could see speeds of around 50 to 60mph. I have ran their 5700kv in a 4WD on road car with it over geared along with a 3S pack and have had it clocked at 91mph, it gets extremely hot and I can only do 4 passes but its fast. I run this same set up in my 1/16th Summit and it does 45mph all day long on a 2S pack. Its a great combo and we would highly recommend it for many applications.
Can I add a fan to this ESC and what would you recommend? Also for motor?
Yes you can use the Castle Creations CC Blower SCT SV3 Fan part number CSE011-0085-00 and CSE011-0014-00.
Will this run with an 8 cell 5000mah 9.6v NiMH? Also would this be a good replacement motor/esc for a Traxxas Stampede weighing about 4.1 lbs?
The input voltage is: 2S LiPo minimum, 3S LiPo maximum, 9 cell max on NiCd/NiMH. Yes this system would be great for the Stampede 2wd.
