Re: titan issues

sorry I have been gone sooo long, however I was able to find the culprit. it was the locked rear diff. I guess with the larger pinions it just put too much strain on the rear motor. I put in a new set of open diff gears and 19 tooth pinions, and have run several packs of batteries with no :explosion:

Re: titan issues

That is what I have now. Unfortunately I have been so busy at work I have not had a chance to try out anything :cry: I have always set my gear mesh by eye and never had any issues before, im just grasping for a reason for burning up motors

Re: titan issues

Re: titan issues

Its not back to back like that, its was 2 hrs between battery charging, the short runs were on the same set of packs. I can get 20-25 min on a set of batteries even with 19t pinions

Re: titan issues

They are new packs and have only run a few cycles through them but so far the final voltage has been within 2/10ths of a volt of each other. The cells on each pack also stay within .05-.1 of each while charging.

Re: Scratch Build

I thought about using brake tubing but I thought it would have bent or collapsed to easily :oops: . but 3' of the rod was only 2.50 a stick from my local napa, a bit cheaper than brake line also :mrgreen:
