May rethink the MGT 8.0 after this....

Finally blew up the transmission in the MGT 8.0. Lots of running, many 5s runs (that's what it was on when this happened), no 6s, but this was above and beyond what I thought I'd see out of the...

Tires are the stocker MGT tires, roughly 6.25 inches diameter.

I really thought the 1518 would never get hot no matter what I did to it. So this is odd to me.

I haven't ever seen it over...

I haven't touched torque control, any pointers before I fiddle and read up on it?

From what I quickly read, I'm going to try 7 in the setting to see how it feels.

I ran again this morning in the grass, was doing a lot of back and forth type of stuff, it peaked out at 160 on a 5s pack.

Got an early morning run in. Ran 5s and 18/49 gearing.

By the end of the pack, with the changes, I was hovering 150-160. It didn't really seem to help a bunch.

I did have a mild tumble and...

Punch control is disabled, but I was meaning to set that to 20-30%, I'm getting sick of it lifting on me all the time.
