Thanks guys...yeh back to a light truck again,ha ha .....Yeh Chucky i thought youse was talkin about the heavey mog. That was an experiment the went up side down...ha ha. Anyway just fitted a 35t integy motor,silasticated the electrics box and gave it a test run.....full steam ahead, toot toot.
The motor's got a sexy blue led light on the back of it when its run forward. Unfortunatly it still is a screaming pig...hopefully the shell will keep alot of the noise down.

Well i finally think i've found the prob with the motor over heating.......striped the rear diff (thought it twas a bearing) no.....so i had a inkling about the gearbox with regards to the selector rod & arms for the dig unit.. could be binding up, but never done anything about it. So pullin g it down again i decided to ripe the guts out and see what happens. First the pig noise gone by 50%.........reverse full power is back to 100% (has allways been slower than forward). Then i gave it the big test and did a stall test against the nearest mega pot plant, outcome ....no overheated motor. So i think this has been the problem since i cooked my brushless...the test will be taking it for a big run this weekend sometime.
