(You mean 14/54, don't you?).Sweet! I had a worrying experience the last time I was at the track. After 20 minutes of running, the vxl motor was really hot. But that was 20 minutes with NiMH. Surprisingly, the center diff mount and motor mount weren't too hot to the touch. I purposely touched them against the manual's advice to see how hot they would be. I figured dust got in between the motor and the motor mount and reduced the rate of heat transfer. Could it be possible? In about 7 minutes with the lipo, it got hot but I asked a nitro guy to feel it for me and he said that it wasn't near 180F. We compared it with an engine at 160F and it was kinda same. I don't think the VXL demagnetized because I tried to get the rotor out but the magnets felt pretty strong.
so, it should run cooler with the Tenshock, right? one more possibility is a bad bearing. But while spinning the spur by hand, I don't think there is much resistance. Just a small tight spot somewhere. It should be fine with the Tenshock, right? Next time I'm at the track, I'll make sure I go with a temp gun or with someone who has a temp gun.
The good news is that the new track near my city seems less dusty.
Oh, btw, my springs should be ready in under a week. I sent a mail to my dad detailing what I needed and it had a picture of the Losi springs. He couldn't see it in the mail. So today, he asked me for the pitch of the stock spring but I told him that it would be useless because the stockers are progressive. I asked him to look at " The picture" in the mail when I realized he wasn't seeing it! I sent him the link to the picture. Now, it's just a matter of forwarding the mail to the spring guy. Sorry for the highjack, I guess this is part of a setup
