Reduced Flux Performance

Post by McSwami » Thu Feb 07, 2013 7:13 pm

I waited for a new drive gear for two weeks. Then the day I can finally go bash it rained all morning.  I couldn't wait, so I put the car on the track after the rain stopped and tried to avoid the puddles.  Ten minutes later my truck was soaked and muddy. Well, about 25 minutes into it my flux lost a huge amount of torque and started squealing horribly.  I thought I ruined my ESC but after tearing it appart and doing some troubleshooting I figured out it was just my slipper clutch was really loose.  Whew, dodged a bullet there!  I won't be running in water anymore.
