    Well, after going nuts trying to find a cure, I have ordered two 3800kv 2040 Tacon motors. I have not been able to find ANY spur/pinion gears that will work with this system. I did use a duratrax...

    I will definitely try that. What pitch is the exceed stuff? I know that most stuff seems to be a 48 pitch, but I haven't been able to find out what Exceed uses.

    I will probably do that, it would be the easiest fix, but that heat REALLY concerns me.
    As for Pinions, where can I get a 2mm pinion? I see 2.3mm everywhere, but the 2mm seems to be harder to...

    School Me on Brushless and Li-Po!

    My sons have two Exceed Magnet trucks. Last year, we ran the stock motors with 1100 and 1200 MAh batteries. This year, I went with brushless motors and 2200 MAh 2S -Li-Po's. I have the charging...

    That sounds like what I will do. The other two are from my kids, and I think that the 5200KV will be better for them.
    Now, which type of LiPo do I use?

    Re: Looking for Some Part Ordering Help

    Do you know where I might be able to get these parts then? I'd like a radio tray that is a little more firm.

    Re: 1/16th Brushless Questions

    I have a question on gearing. If a motor is designed to turn 32,000 RPM, how would a smaller pinion gear keep it cooler? It's still going to turn its max RPM, you just lose top end speed by doing so....

    I'm currently running a 16tooth pinion and a 50 tooth spur gear, do I need to go lower for the 7800?

    Re: 1/16th Brushless Questions

    I would go with the larger Tacon, but it's too long for my application. This is a 1/16th that runs a 380-size motor currently. I am really curious about the difference between the 5200 and 7800 kv...

    1/16th Brushless Questions

    I want to go brushless on my Magnet truck, and I noticed that there are a few options. Most people say to just use the 18A / 5200kv combo, but I can get it cheaper if I buy the 7800kv and 18A, or...

    Re: Exceed 1/16 Wheel and Tire Options?

    I found some!!
    I had originally bought some HPI buggy style tires. They were just a hair too big for the Exceed wheel, and even with gluing I don't think that they would have held.
    So, I headed...

    Re: Exceed 1/16 Wheel and Tire Options?

    Okay, I found some options, but now I am curious about how everyone gears their cars when they change tire diameter.
    I found that the actual wheel (outside) diameter is 2.2 inches. This is the...

    Re: Brushed Motor Options?

    They are way too young to do any of the work themselves, but I figured by going 1/16th, as they get older, and if they stay interested, then I can move them up into the 1/10s and then the 1/8s.

    Poll: Re: ESC combo upgrade

    You'll need to get the size of the motor. It says it's for 1/10 and 1/12 scale, so the motor is probably a 540. The magnet comes with a 380. A 370 size should fit as well (it's more common than the...
