      I have a 2in1 card that just says searching or loading or something but never loads up. With factory set sc8 esc. 

       

      Is it probable i just need to download firmware? Do i need a disk or anything to download firmware? 

  5. I have just put a heat sink with fan on my motor.It fits with no visible gaps but it will move when bashing.Is it ok to put a dab of heat resistant sealant on it to hold it firm?

      Don't see why not, either that or a zip tie :)

      I stuck the fan on the 2028 motor in my old Baja Flux with shoe goo lol

    3. martin34

      martin34

      Lol if shoe goo worked I am sure a little sealant will be ok.Thanks guys

  6. Fitting terra pins to the savage flux.Do you recommend dropping two teeth off the pinion?

  7. can I fit a failsafe with a spektrum radio?

  8. If my lipo is slightly warm but my motor is virtually cold,does that mean I am under geared?

    1. Noj

      Noj

      Yes, so gear up two teeth on the pinny and do some test runs, checking all temps as you go.

       

      Remember, all components in the electrickery chain will be warm under normal operating conditions.

    2. martin34

      martin34

      Thanks noj.I will look for a new bigger pinion

      a stock VXL slash can sell for under £200  But a fully hopped up ultimate can still go for £200.

      It's more down to whoever wants to buy it, rather than the truck itself, it's the same with anything, you see mega hopped up Bajas fetching peanuts, then a stock ones goes up and people go crazy for it at the same sort of money.

      Silly really, but it's good for bargains.

    4. sean-vrs

      sean-vrs

      It's also down to the buyer I would rather buy a clean little used standard model than a "hopped up" one. 

  10. I charge a 900mah nimh at 0.9a.Is that correct?

      I ment I understand lipos better

      aye for the most safest you cannot go wrong with Nihm or nicad. but they do not produce that kick like a lithium product can.

      you find a lot of the scaler-crawler guys like to run nimh's because of the weight they carry. and a lipo just adds more power where its not really wanted.

    4. martin34

      martin34

      The 900mah NiMH is going in my sons mini as I don't want him messing with lipos.Wells he's only 3 so I won't let him charge the NiMH either

      Thanks guys just got back and put it back on charge.I set it to 5a and dropped straight back down to 0.1a like smeg said.I haven't used them for a year.Maybe that's why its taking so long

  17. Lipo's on charge for the savage flux for the first time in over a year

  18. Do I charge a 1600mah NiMH at 1.6amps?

    1. capri-boy

      capri-boy

      You can yh, though I tend to do two lots of this rate then a slower trickle. Just monitor to make sure it doesn't get too hot - nimh should be warm when finished but not hot.

      Smaller pinion does the same thing

    4. norcoforever

      norcoforever

      smaller pinions give much larger jumps in speed and temperatures though

      I ran a wpsc8 in an Emaxx for a year on 4s with 2350 with no issues. Just needs gearing properly. You will prob have to sacrifice some speed. I was constantly waiting for it to smoke but it never seemed to get flustered, now its going strong in my pede.
