Default Re: TorqueMaster BR-XL Big Brushed Power!


any brushed motor you produce hold up to 6s use ?

Or is 4s the highest voltage one should even attempt with brushed motors ?

Seems the advise from others is to go brushless if attempting 6s use.
And that my 35t TM Expt. will die in 10 ft if running on 6s ?

I don't plan on running 6s except for a few short passes just to see what it does...
As I normally run 3s all day long without heat concern or excessive brush wear.

So could I push my 35T using 4s voltage ? Still too much voltage ?
Maybe 3s is the limit and I shouldn't push beyond that voltage ?
But my 35T just gets warm to the touch using 3s ?

I can hold my finger on my 35t mtr all day long. But I drive slow mostly.

Possibly I should retain using 3s and just purchase a different more
that spins at a slightly higher RPM ?

I'm not really going for speed... Just lots of unjustified torque !? Lol

Or is your advice to not attempt 4s - 6s using brushed motors and just go with brushless if wanting to attempt 4s and 6s voltage ?


What's the max input voltage capability of the TM 35t expt ?
I do not see those specs listed.

2- While setting the BRXL ESC with the motor the first time, all went fine.
Then I realised I had to invert the motor rotation, so tried to swap the leads. Also tried to invert the setting into my TX and now I have the following problem:
If I have the radio on, connect the battery, the esc will only show steady green light, but it does not operate. To make it work I first have to connect the battery, then switch on radio while pushing the throttle to max, then the ESC will react.. and work properly… When disconnecting the battery I will have to do all again.. Any suggestion/idea?

How can I re-set the ESC to standard setting and needing re-do the calibration process from zero?

Many thanks as always for your great support, and products I love!!
