Kyosho X speed / Question

Was just wondering if using my Kyosho X speed in my stock racer will damage it in anyway....i keep reading all these ( horror ) stories about burnt out this and that.

stock car + Kyosho X speed = ?

Is it ok to do so, i dont use bearings or anything else at the moment, any help would be cool

X-Speed is fine to use coz it is made for stock Z's, unlike the super power NML which you will need a FET stack 2 run coz if you dont u will ahve a chance of frying something because it draws more current or something....... can someone please back me up...

but i know for a fact that the X-speed is fine 2 run on stock Z's... if i am wrong i deserve 2 b shot.........

The X-Speed is the safe limit of the PCB.

However if you abuse it it can still exceed the limit... if say you ram into a wall, and keep giving it full throttle, it can still burn the esc... there is only about 2 to 8 second of safer higher max amperage on the esc... if you hold it at max amp draw longer then this it will still fry. very hard to do, and usualy your reflex is to let go of the throttle when your facing a wall, but there are some ppl that just insist on trying to push the wall (of their house) out of their way...

ok just say if you have no traction and you put a thin layer of water on tiles and start doing mini burnouts holding the throttle full will this burn out the ESC coz if it does i can hit my brothers which like 2 thrash it when i am out so i am considering buying a safe.........

Reason wall pushing is bad is cuz the motor is usualy not spinning, but power flowing through it... thus maximum amperage... stall current. etc.

it depends what surface and how hard you run it. I've did a burnout on Hard wood floor without a turbo and i still fried my FET...If you want to do burnouts, do it for a short while, or decrease the weight on the rear tires.

full throttle ing a motor say while you hold the car in the air... is the least amount of amps.. less load on the tires, however its gona spin faster then it would on the track and thus wear out the brushes much faster... along with the com, and cause sparking and slow the motor down etc ... tip, when your away, put a stock motor on it and hide the x-speed under a table with tape hahaha...
