  1. Guys what have I done wrong? Ok, got the genuine Fox rebuilt with as much premium, alloy quality parts as I could find. Fitted a SP 3500KV and Reventon S speed controller and it literally torched itself in less than a minute after a short run-in. Ran it initially for about 2 minutes at reduced throttle for a quick check. No heat issues with ESC or motor. loaded it into the car drove 5 mins to the track and honestly 35-40 seconds later, smoke and melted death. I know it has a narrow gear window. 5.?? to 6.?? and I was about 7.4, is that enough to overload to melt point. Have I got ($50.00 AUD on sale) what I paid for??? I purchased 2 of these combos, as I have an original and a nova. Are they just completely unsuited to a buggy and if so..... .... ... .. what is the best motor esc combo for these animals??? do I stay brushless or go back to a brushed setup??? really need some solid advice guys, I just want a quick and reliable setup. specs, Fox + Nova, both identical. alloy wheels, hot trick up and low rear arms and heaps of other retro hop ups. Nano Lipo 2S 5300mah 50-100c's, Flysky GT3C series controllers ... Whats the answer? P.S this is my 9yr old daughters, she waited months and.... dead.....shes not happy.
