Nope, the XL5 will only run brushed motors down to 15 turns.
Can I replace a brushed motor with a brushless motor?
In order to change over from brushed to brushless, you must first purchase a new brushless motor. It is not possible to convert the motor itself from one type to the other. In addition, the brushless motors take a different type of electronic speed controller (ESC), so that must also be replaced.
Can traxxas XL5 handle 3S?
The Traxxas 3025 XL-5 HV brushed electronic speed control works with the high-voltage 3S LiPo battery packs for greater efficiency and power.
Can you run a brushless motor on a brushed ESC?
Any way at all to make a brushed ESC run a brushless motor? No. The controller must have firmware designed to drive brushless motors. Some escs offer both a brush and brushless mode.
How fast does the Traxxas Rustler XL 5 go?
The Rustler reaches its blistering 35+mph top speed on-road using the optional 28-tooth pinion gear (included) and a 7-cell 8.4V battery pack.
How fast does the Traxxas Rustler 4X4 XL 5 go?
The agile, 70+mph Rustler VXL takes an adventure at the local park. Fast, fun, and rugged – Rustler VXL hits massive jumps, roosts berms, and blasts down single-track trails.
How long will a brushless motor Last?
If you are looking for a motor with a long life expectancy, consider a brushless motor. Brushed motor life is limited by the brush type and can attain 1,000 to 3,000 hours on average, while brushless motors can attain tens of thousands of hours on average, as there are no brushes to wear.
Is brushless worth the extra money?
So if you’re someone who does a fair amount of serious projects that require a drill, going with a brushless could make a lot of sense. It’ll give you higher speeds and power, and require less maintenance. But if you’re a DIYer tackling lighter projects, you may not notice much of a difference.
What causes a brushless motor to fail?
Conclusion – What Kills a Brushless Motor
Current is what ultimately leads to the destruction of a brushless motor. Increasing the amount of current a brushless motor is consuming comes with a cost. The cost is heat. Too much heat in your motor will lead to failure of the motor windings.
Can you run 3s on XL-5?
The XL-5 is a stout little esc. Myself and many others in our club have been running the XL-5’s on 3s for a long time now. Most are running 35-55t motors though a few (myself included) have run 20t on 3s and have yet to kill one. The XL-5 is a stout little esc.
Can a Traxxas XL5 handle 2s LiPo?
You also cannot use any 3s LiPo battery with the XL-5 ESC. You are limited to 2s LiPos.
Are Traxxas LiPo batteries safe?
Never use NiMH or NiCad-type chargers or charge modes to charge LiPo batteries. The use of a NiMH or NiCad charger or charge mode will damage the batteries and may cause fire and personal injury. NEVER charge or use a LiPo battery or pack that shows any kind of damage or deformity.
