    i was up last night and thougt i would see how fast i could make my micr go. i took my electric trimmer apart, and the motor looked about the right size, so i put a plug on it mounted it to the motor plate, which was a pain, and let it go. that thing is so fast, it is crazy. i cant run it in the house anymore, because it is way too fast, but it runs the battery down alot faster. is there any way i can get more run time out of it?

    obviously that would give me more run time, i mean can i put any caps on the moror, and would that help, or are they just for glitching? and i have no idea what the specs of this motor is, but it does make my esc get hot, will this burn up my esc? it doesnt get real hot, but hotter than the stock motor.

    caps are for glitching so they won't help any. Any motor that is less whines will make a esc get warmer. It is really your call on if you think the esc is getting to hot or not. If it is hot enuf that you can't tounch it use a different motor because even if it is faster the esc is not made to handle it.

    That looks alot like a 4tec the way ti is set up and yes it probly would give the tec a run for its money :D I belive its about 70 bucks to turn the tec into a graphite missle, lower chassis upper chassis and rear shock tower. This winter I am hopeing to do it and if I like this car I just might have to pick 1 up for a bud so we could race each other.

    ya I would, but if I had the money I would stick a brushless set up in it, then it would go hella fast lol. In the end I probly won't get a brushless set up for it so I just need to find a good gear ratio.
