    Mojave Mojave Motor Case Crews

    I was bashing my Mojave the other day and the back case of the motor fell off due to the screws backing out. Has this happened to anyone else? Does anyone know where I can get replacements/what size these are?

    Mojave Arrma Mojave Motot Case Screws

    Hello all I had the oddest thing happen the other day while I was enjoying my Mojave, I was driving it and all of a sudden it ground to a screeching hault. Naturally I tried to get it to move under its own power but it seemed like it seems like the brakes were ceased as it wouldn't move. So I...

    Does higher kv mean more speed or not

    So I’m confused on how the motors work and the specifications and what they mean, for example I have a typhon 3s and the stock motor is 3200kv 3660 and I was suggested a 2650kv 4068 motor and was told it was faster, but the kv are lower so I wasn’t sure if it was faster or slower or had any clue...

    Motor is overheating

    So I got this motor on amazon (photo below) and it’s overheating I have a 25t pinion on there and I’ve been suggested that’s what is making it overheat, also when I installed the pinion I really had to jam it on there to fit idk if that could be a reason but I wanted to point that out as well...

    I want to make some Talion changes

    I plan on dumping my 160/1250 combo into it. Anyone know if it'll fit? Everything is stock and I don't want to make any mods other than esc, motor and esc.

    Am I insane for attempting this modular ESC/BEC/CapPack harness?

    I have a new Max6 on order with a 4895 1640kv motor for my aging Kraton 6S v4, but with a lot of heavy M2C upgrades. I'm adding even more goodness to my beast. Anyways, am I crazy for trying this: I want to do some experiments and have maximum flexibility - so i want to create a custom wiring...
