Default More power and faster moving forward than moving backwards?

Hi Guys,

I seriously am almost done with my mod/build....but ever since I swapped out to the slightly larger stock motor pinion gear, I noticed that I had alot more front moving speed and power compared to going in reverse.

Any ideas why? Do I need to adjust some throttle settings in my TX?

Thanks.

It's due to the stock ESC ... there are six discreet steps in one direction and only three in the other. The only way to change that is to change ESC's ... The stock unit is non-programmable

Hmm...i thought someone posted in one of the threads that for the stock ESC, it made no diff going forwards or reverse. That's why it was suggested to just reverse the throttle when you do the tranny swap(no need for wire swap at the can). My MRC obviously is 'wired' correctly than since it's faster/more powerful going forwards than in reverse. Strange thing is, before I swaped to the slightly larger motor pinion, both forwards and reverse seemed to be the same?

Rock Frog is right. I said that before and he has since proven me wrong. We learn something new every minute.

wrong. if you do the tranny flip, you need to reverse your wires, not reverse the tx..

Thanks for the confirmation. Guess it's normal than. Faster/More powerful going forward compared to going in reverse.

Yup. I did reverse the wires when the tranny was flipped. That is why moving forward is faster/more powerful than reversing for me.

Not a problem. Just verifying that this is normal as in a previous thread, it was posted that the stock ESC performs the same forwards and in reverse.But now it's clarified - Thanks to Rockfrog and 8695Beaters for their feedback.They are always so patient and kind with their info, never critical

It only logical that I ask based on my own observations.
