It was designed to be driven by idiots, and that's how I drive mine- like an idiot.

I bash all my r/c's this way. With a properly geared setup the esc will handle any torture you throw at it. That's why we check temps often with a fresh build, and adjust accordingly.

It wasn't his driving that killed the esc, it was a bad esc, and the manufacturer suspects a bad batch of capacitors is to blame.
Well I am glad you said it.

Ha! There is no shame in my game

My point was that Castle bashes on their esc's in testing because they know most consumers will. (I have Castle in mine, and realize he was running a fighter cat)

I make sure of a proper cool running setup and do have some common sense.

I seriously doubt his driving style had anything to do with the failure as you suggested. If it did, it is a very poor esc.


It's "Dr. _paralyzed_" actually. Not like with a PhD, but Doctor like in Dr. Pepper.

XL stub with stock purple spacer and new larger spacer

Here it is in place. My thought is that since it's sandwiched in between the hex hub and the steering knuckle this will help cut down on the amount the axle can flex on hard landings, hopefully keeping the threads from snapping off like they're known for?

Looking at the dimensions of the stock purple spacer:

8mm x 12mm x 14mm (length)

Do you have any dimensions you can provide for your spacer? I am guessing that it may be 16mm or 18mm on the outer diameter

In a pinch, could you use say two spacers or bearings in say the following dimensions:

8mm x 22mm x 7mm

and come close to accomplishing the same thing that you did in your opinion?
