    Fast Rustler XL-5

    I recently put some proline dirtworks on rpm rims on my rustler xl-5 and as soon I started running it, the motor burned out. I put a new motor in and with a fully charged 8.4v 3000mah nimh it was fast, much faster than I have ever seen it before even though I went up 4 teeth in my spur gear. Is this bad? the motor was 107 degrees farenheit but not a very accurate thermometer.

    call me ignorant but i never watch my temps, if you wanna go faster go with less teeth on your spur and more teeth on your pinion, overheat protection and lipo made me lazy.
    Thats what she said.
