Default Bubba02STiís Traxxas Rally

Decided I needed something a little faster in the dirt than a crawler, so I picked up a Traxxas Fiesta Rally. Took it out for a bit after replacing the Traxxas plug with a deans. Here is a picture of it before it even hit the dirt.

Default Toasted the motor on the second day.

Went and had some fun with it today. Found its limits. Pretty sure I toasted the motor. Seemed to be down on power shortly after running it fairly hard. Played a bit in the snow and then it seemed to give out. Thought it might be the same issue I had with my deadbolt l but the servo works on the other channels. I should probably get a dirt sock to put over it as Iím sure all dirt I kicked up into toasted it. Any suggestions on motors? Thinking about brushless if the price tag is right.

Way to go Traxxas! Good job!

Have a new motor, just a stock 12t 550, but Iím going to need a new pinion as well. Iím looking at upgrades for brushed motors unless anyone can point me in the direction of a WP brushless.

Well the 1/10 Rally is fixed. Forgot I ordered a spare 550 12t. Still waiting on the dusty motors shroud but I figured I’d take it out tomorrow for a bit and see how well he runs. The rips up and down the street seemed to be ok. I need to start looking into upgrades. Mainly want to get rid of the plastic suspension and driveline first. And probably move to brushless as well. If anyone has suggestions for the slash/rally let me know. It’ll be spending its time on both dirt and pavement.
