hey
im a die hard nitro head with a slash. i have the velineon brushless kit in it.
the esc went out the first week. traxxas did replace it. then about 3 months later and no more than 15 packs run through it it is burned out again.getting tired of this quick.

whats a decent esc to use with the velineon motor? as you can see i dont use it much but i do race it once in awhile. any sugestions on a decent esc. dont want to spend a fortune on one. less than $100 if possible. thanks.

I ran the mamba max with the vxl in my slash and loved it. 3s lipo and great runtimes. It really only needs 2s and was still awesome. Not alot of heat issues either.

Seriously, if you burned out two of these, consider the possibility that, as a nitro guy, you are doing something wrong or have something set up wrong with your slash. You should get help in person from someone that can go over the car and check it out, maybe watch you drive it, rather than asking on the internet.

Steve what are your gearing the slash at ? My VXL was temperamental also but never burned up. I am currently using 2 LRP's and 2 Losi's. I like the Losi because of the USB programming but the LRP's kick some amps also :)

Also if you are consider racing more at like BFG and Proving grounds look into a sensored system to run in the 13.5 classes. The VXL and Mamba system will not fit into the stock and super stock classes. :rolleyes:

Awesome :) I love the novak SS motors. Those things are so smooth!!!!
Are you running that in your slash ? Or do I see a stadium truck in the near feature?
