I can confirm a 3s with stock silver cans, stock gears, on a traxxis speed controller all aboard a clodbuster at 16.9 mph,
I can't figure anyway it could be more perfect! Thanks to all the time and input from the people of this forum,, I read it twice, maybe three times, bought it all once and it runs perfect! My new build will be posted down the road,, ( on a slow monthly contest ) lol but here is the proof on the speed

I can also confirm. My 4 wheel steering is nuts/useless! I usually leave it disabled.

Not sure if this has been attempted yet.

I just finished running my Clodbuster on the stock Tamiya ESC TEU103BK on 9 cells 10.8v using the stock can motors.

I have run a total of 2 packs so far. The battery is an old school 5000 mah pack from cheapbatterypacks.com

I had about 22 mins of solid run time. The battery dumped around 28 mins.

It was 40 degrees out today, driving on a mix of pavement, and frozen snow covered grass, and jumping small snow banks as well. I was running wide open 90 percent of the time.

The battery was warm, Motors not hot to the touch, ESC was about room temp. Couldn't tell if it was really warm at all.

Anyone try a 3c lipo?

10,8V on a 103BK ESC?? Really?

I have a 106BK and two Sport Tuned Motors. Can I use 21T Motors on 106BK (7,4v) or will ESC crash?

Reverse the connection of the 2 rear motor wires and that should fix your problem.
