Noxz: Dude I tried this on my video. My car still works.
Alexandre Figueiredo: @strangeraFTW I'm sold. I'm going to buy that motor and esc to give my MR
more power and speed. Thanks for the fast reply.
Grigor Penev: Трябват и едни зимни гуми и няма да се пързаля :)
Strangera.com: @avfigueiredo I have test the new motor & esc and it is running just fine.
There is a little bit more "punch" when using the lipo, but the MR is
running fine with the stock battery. On the second question - yes there is
big difference, but it is coming from the motor not the battery. I haven't
test the original motor outside, but now when I am at home it is almost
impossible the press the trigger to the max, because the MR is just 2 fast,
and 2 furious with the new setup. :)
Strangera.com: Well it depends on the lipo :D mine is 7.4
Sébastien Dubé: Yeah your rc seems lazy... Maybe a 3100 KV is not enough fast I have a
RC18T on 5200KV motor on 2s and it's still uncontrolable on paved road
hawkeye2196: Im getting the ez-run 5200kv motor combo. cant wait to try it.
Rcnation101: What the hell snow man to a dub step love it
achkar: @Papi4av2 остави винетката, къде е гражданската :))
Strangera.com: @Papi4av2 ?
Strangera.com: Hi, sorry for the late response. I have used silicone to waterproof the
ESC. There is a video in my channel called "HPI Mini Recon - обратно в
бокса ;)" you can see the process at around 8:00 ;) So now the ESC is
pretty much indestructible, but I will still not recommend using direct
water, because of the other parts that are not so waterproofed. :) Using
compressed air to clean them is much safer and effective. :)
Matthew Bracher: great song
mondialienation: i have take this difference by gps, on stock engine stock battery 33kmh
full speed stock engine 2amp/H nanotech 2s : 38kmh

jdunbar1820: I dropped a associated reedy 9500 combo in my recon with a 3S lipo MIP
SUPER DIFFS and a steel spur gear. 15t pinion. Super fast!
Alexandre Figueiredo: @strangeraFTW Yes, you're right. I started by looking at a 5200kv and a
7800kv motor but I don't want to have to change all my transmission to
metal right now. 3100kv is just what I need to give it a little boost and
still be able to maintain the stock transmission. Thanks.
Сергей Парасоцкий: you have made waterproof?
Strangera.com: @avfigueiredo On the battery part - there is not so big difference between
the original battery, and the lipo (except the capacity). "Voltage wise" in
the end of the day, the original is 7.2V, and the lipo that I have is 7.4.
Plus the lipo is lighter then the original battery pack,
James Montana: Ще те глобят къде е винетката на тая кола ? :D
DustyDylan: i found out my mini recon isint water proof the hard way it fell in a
puddle and i cant go back words
Alexandre Figueiredo: Have you tested that motor and ESC with the stock NI-MH battery? If you
did, can you tell me if you felt that the performance with this new
motor+ESC using the HPI stock battery is a lot better than using the stock
motor and ESC? Thanks.
Ray Heery: actually a 2s li-po measures at 8.4v fully charged
Strangera.com: @avfigueiredo np. BTW you can test with even bigger motor if you want to
"risk it", but in the end of the day, more of the parts in the Mini Recon
are plastic, so I decide to go with 3100kV motor.
Cert: Building stuff is always in my family gene. My dad is a new york auto technician and taught me everything I need to know about cars. Now I sell car parts online to suppliment my income. So it does help when there's good guidance.
