Hey guys, I have an et48.3 with an m2c extended wide body truggy chassis and I put a 1520 combo in it based on the good things I saw yall say about it. Just like you guys, I didn’t want to deal with heat issues and plan to run primarily 4s batteries. I currently have a 20t pinion on it and backflip lp tires. I was curious what the biggest size pinion yall would recommend running on it without having to worry about heat. I already have a dual fan heatsink installed as well.
Good looking rig brother, I personally found that with the backflip lp and on 4s I was able to comfortably run a 24t pinion (I don’t mind runner my rigs a little on the warmer side; closer to 190ish). Can’t fit anything larger than 24t unless you drill out the motor mount, I say with a 23t you’ll be able to get down and nasty with the best of em without having to worry. 🍻🍻

I would also recommend ditching the stock sensor harness and run a direct plug sensor wire, the stock mmx sensor harness literally breaks if you stare at it the wrong way 😂 you can get em cheap on Amazon and clean up the wires a bit.

Awesome, thank you for the input. Ill order a 23t along with a direct plug sensor wire. And good to know about the stock sensor harness, ill make sure to not give it any dirty looks:ROFLMAO: I'm going to order a couple of new 4s batteries as well, do you have any preferences on what to get? I think im going to change the esc battery connector from the deans to something more durable too. And BTW your YouTube video where you were running a 27t was sick!

Thanks man!! I’m finishing up a TLR xt build with an lrp zr.32, I’ll probably post a couple more vids here soon! I’ve been running the zeee 7200mah 4s lipos for a couple years now and they’re amazing!

So I got my 1520 installed, put the esc on top of the center diff and am so freakin happy ! ! ! Couldn't run a whole pack with out the familiar dot, dash, dot sound from the esc indicating motor overheating. I just ran an entire pack till low battery. I was in a large empty field ran it hard the entire pack. btw got a 25t pinion. Max temperature was 150. It was 85 outside today in Los Angeles. So dam happy I just ordered another 4s pack lol. with the white hard body and this new motor/esc am done with the mt410. Now I need build something to put the 1515 motor into . . . ? ? ?
