I tried this setup in my revo and savage. OK but no torque and kind of slow for what I was expecting. Used it on 4s and got warm. No wheelie no real speed. OK for a track fun but nothing close to the fun I see people have with these truck's.
I use one of these in my Revo 3.3 converted to electric, and it has plenty of power. Good temps and runtime as well. Its been running for a few packs so far with no reliability concerns.
But the brakes..why is it each time I hit the brakes, I strip a spur or do a forward flip? They are set to the lowest and still much too strong! Anybody have any advice to share?
And at low speeds..well it doesn't do low speed, it has a smooth take-off, but minimum speed is maybe 5mph, not a big deal but still an annoyance. Its a hindrance in off road situations where the truck has to climb obstacles etc.
Your ESC isn't set to 'forward and reverse' instead of 'forward-pause-reverse' is it?
By the way you've described your situation, it may be a case that there isn't any braking action* just full reverse.
I am really sorry, but i have to agree to the reliability issue. i use the combo in an lrp s8 bxe team and had greeat pleasure in driving the rc-car - but for exactly one (!) lipo pack (4s turnigy). after 15 min of bashing the esc went up in smoke without any noticable reason.
sorry hk , the engine is brilliant, but the esc is ****.
at this point i love this setup, i put this system in my 4x4 slash didnt even use program box yet, works like a champ plenty of power , does work with 2s 3s 4s barly gets warm on 2s, 3s gets good an warm, 4s hot but too hot were you cant touch it, i imagine if you ran 4s back to back it would get very hot burning BBQ , i would tell friends about this system. THX Hobby king I probably can get more out of it once i use program card

This is mounted in a 3.3 Revo using the integy motor mount. I had to grind off the cooling fins to make it fit in the mount (3 places, not all of them) I am running 4s and she pulls wheelies on demand. Runs warm to the touch and throtle is smooth as butter.

This combo is one of the biggest waste of money I've ever done. Others tried to warn but HK keeps taking the bad reviews or comments off the discussion page. Nice job HK and way to stay true to customers. The main problem with this setup is the Esc, it's trash. They go up in smoke for no apparent reason after only a couple battery packs. I read about here and didn't listen, now all you are really able to see is the great reviews. I, as did others, send in our ESC for warranty only to never hear back from HK. Do yourself a huge favor and buy a HobbyWing ESC.
