Sidewinder in Bandit?
 
Wanting to put a Sidewiner 4600kv in my sons Bandit XL5. Would I need to upgrade any parts (tranny etc.) and can someone recommend a gearing? Will still be running a 6 cell NiMH Battery

with a 6 cell you shouldn't need to upgrade probably as fast as an LRP system...gearing not sure...but i know i ran a lrp 1 star(9turn) setup as my first brushless system ever in a completely stock rustler which i bought at the store lol that day and it ran and ran and ran on stock gearing just fine and no tranny changes either i think you should be ok...but not 100% sure... as for gearing not sure

I checked and the VXL Setup uses the standard gearing of the Titan setup which is 26t pinion and 76t spur but the VXL is a 3500kv

you could go with the stock VXL tranny and half shaft drivelines, mine has been holding up fine with a Feigao 9L and 4 cell lipo geared 54/15 its got all the power you would want (borderline out of control).....mandatory wheelie bar

I have a rustler setup for hi speed with a sidewinder 5700 and 3s lipo geared 23/86. I have not had problems with the stock drivetrain so far.

All I would change really, is swapping the idler gear to the steel one.

Five-oh-joe 04.11.2008 11:20 AM

I'd say steel idler and the steel ringed diff gear just to be on the safe side.

hey BL_RV0, could you give me the dimensions of the sidewinder? i need a really small bl esc for my x10 but i cant find any specs on it. thnx

BL_RV0 04.11.2008 07:34 PM

The dimensions of the Sidewinder are 1.75in long, 1.25in wide, and 0.5in tall. Hope that helped.

Redneck427 04.12.2008 05:20 PM

a half inch tall? does that include those yellow things or the heatsink?

I'm pretty sure the Sidewinder doesn't really have those gold plugs that stick up (heard from a somewhat reliable source a while back).

jhautz 04.13.2008 07:24 PM

Yea. Mine came with wires and 4mm plugs on the end of the wires like a MM does.
