PostSubject: Alittle help   Tue Mar 08, 2011 8:52 am

I have a new set off Proline road rage tires, they have about three runs on them now. Can somebody tell me what I can do to get them to quit spinning so damn much. Everytime I run them they spin the whole time, not on the wheel on the road. I have even tried loosening the slipper and it still spins. Under hard acceleration and speed runs. Any help would be appreciated. They are on a brushless Rustler.

You might need to look at your suspension set up. Run the rear springs a little softer and the fronts a little stiffer. It will allow more weight to transfer to the rear and helps with rear traction. Also, this is gonna sound crazy but it works I promise... spray WD40 on the tires and let it sit for a couple minutes then wipe it off. It will open the pores in the tires and soften them up a bit.

I will try the WD-40 trick, if that dont work it than it will be all Deans fault for recomending them to me ( just joking). I had it set up soft on the rear, but it still was spinning.

You can always swap the tranny for an aluminum one. Adds weight and acts like a giant heatsink.

Here's my Rustler with Road Rages.

They aren't ballooning, they are exploding! lol! lol! lol! lol!

Glad the WD40 worked. Another trick if your not going to run a particular set of tires for a few months is to spray WD40 on the tires and rub it around for an even coat and stick them in a zip lock bag. It will keep them from drying out and cracking. This works for foams and rubber tires BTW.

Lipo's weren't cool back then. A123's is what I used for pizza cutters.

Is that a type of battery? If so what type? Are they good, bad or what?

They are a type of battery, the same kind in DeWalt drills and stuff. Still a lithium type of battery but a different technology than lipo. I just know that you can blast charge and discharge them at a ridiculously high amperage.

A123's are gangster cells. Punks need not to apply.

They are bigger 28650 cylindrical cells with a nominal capacity of 2300mah and 3.3V. The resistance of these cells are higher then lipo, but don't let that fool ya. As the temperature of the battery rises, resistance goes down. Resistance of the cells also go down as they ages, so in a nutshell you get the full capacity of the battery throughout it's 1000 life cycles. These cells can put out some serious amperage. But because of the higher resistance the voltage drops quite a bit under max load. Your setup better be prepared to handle the high amps though. If the voltage is too low for you under load, you can always go with a parallel pack.

You can charge with a lipo profile, but at the cost of reduced life cycles.
These cells don't blow up like lipo's. They vent and you'll see some sweet smelling brown goo. Not to be confused with ordinary DooDoo.
Reduced lifecycles with overheating of the cells.
Best used for High Voltage or High Amperage applications. Use lipo's for anything in between.
Cutoff voltage is 2V per cell.
You can charge these bastards @ 20A, which is a 7 minute charge time.
You can buy a Dewalt 36V li-ion pack and harvest the cells from there. I've been told by A123racing/Enerland, that those cells are not the best of the best, like their kit cells. But who cares, they work.

So if you have a pack of Depends, badass motor/ESC combo and some common sense, than A123's are for you.

No mula for a pack right now dude. However, if I do make or buy an E-bike, I will need to get 3 packs to make a 10s3p battery pack.
