    my titan 550's 21 T in my erevo lasted 2 weeks
    full throttle or else it must be broke but breaking it is just another reason to build it bigger and better than before!

    I finally got the rustler yesterday, and gave it to her today. She loves it. She got to run it for about 20 minutes before it started raining. Didn't wreck or crash at all, I was very proud of her. She loved that it will spin the tires and ramp over ruts in the dirt, cause all her previous trucks were Walmart radio shack junk that was to slow. Anyway the motor and esc was very hot after 20 min. With an 8.4 nimh battery ran through it. A lot hotter than my vxl rusty has ever gotten. I need to get some oil for the motor but any other suggestions? Or does brushed motors just run that hot?
