TrackStar 1/18th Scale 7.5T Brushless power System (6100kv)
TrackStar performance now in comes in easy to select Combo package!
Using a Fast Silicon Labs MCU and high quality On-Semiconductor MOSFETs the TrackStar 18A ESC sets a new standard in high quality yet affordable car ESCs. With Intelligent MCU logic the TrackStar series ESCs allow extremely precise start up control and positioning feed back from the motor. Combined with the quality 4 pole motor this translates in to very smooth start up and acceleration and torque.
The Turnigy TrackStar 18A ESC also boasts a host of programing options not usually found in an ESC of this size and can be programmed with ease via the Turnigy TrackStar programing card (sold separately)

NOTE: We suggest reducing your gearing if running this motor on 3S.
I intend to use this motor/esc with my Losi Mini Desert Truck and I am looking for a compatible pinion.
Does the following pinion works? Is the original pinion 14T?

don't get water, sand or dirt anywhere the internals of this motor.
The rotor plating surface coating can easily corrode which causes it to jam against the magnets.
Mine's toasted after maybe 10 runs and seized solid so if it ever gets any moisture, open it and thoroughly clean before running.
The end cap simply unscrews then pull the rotor out and clean with a toothbrush. There's barely any clearance between rotor and magnets so any burrs or magnetic s****ings can foul the rotation and destroy the motor eventually so if your motor starts to stick or feel choppy at low revs. Clean immediately or you'll toast it.
my buddy and I have Xray's M18 Pros, we use these and we finally burned one after almost 70 hours of running time, mine is at around 30 to 35 hours of run time (the track is at my friend place, he run it quite more often) and no signs of any trouble yet, I use this battery (PRODUCT ID: 9210000077) and it give me from 45 min to 1 hour of running time depending of how hard you drive it
Hey there! I've got a stock Mini-T and i really need some help. I've been looking all over the place but noone can give me simple, cheap and well working components for my truck. Please give me a list of some sort. I know this may not have been the best place to post this request. But it's a start.
As i said it is fully stock. I want some speed and i dont want things breaking. Ive got a pretty low (but not yet set) budget. And i live in South Africa. (The car is so stock i dont even have a battery for it.)
You may be better of asking that question in a Mini-T forum or even checking out these forums for similar questions. If you want speed then breakages are sure to happen, it's the price we pay for going fast and this will give you that in your mini-t.
See the mini t pics of my custom mini t with this power system. I get my bits from eBay by searching losi mini t . If you want to run this sort of power you will need to:
upgrade to an associated pinion gear 12-14tooth.
Upgrade to the losi ball diff
Glue your tyres on
Upgrade to oil shocks
Consider making or buying a long wheel base chasis for better stability.
Upgrading the shock towers to graphite
Upgrading the wheel hubs to hardened alloy
Installing a full ball bearing kit
Changing the servo for a hitec hs55 or modifying and installing a hs56hb with associated servo saver
So it's a bit of work but you'll have the most rc fun ever!
I also run a 1300 mah 3s lipo pack and it's great!
Don't know much about the E-Revo only that I think it comes with a 380 size motor, which is 28mm in diameter. This motor is 20mm in diameter so its quite a bit smaller, its hole spacings are at 16mm, 14mm and 12mm I think the E-Revo motor hole spacings will be higher. At a guess I would say no but someone else may be able to confirm this.
By all accounts yes! It's a great little system and perfect for 1/18 cars. Make sure you consider upgrading drive chain parts if worn and also locktite any metal to metal screws and the grub screw in the pinion gear as this power will shred anything that's not up to the job! Took my losi mini t to a bmx track and it cleared the triples! Funny as.
HK Dear friends,
I installed the system Trackstar 1/18th scale 10t brushless power system (6100kv) on my 1/18 Scale 4WD Racing Buggy RTR, placing GTX3R Turnigy receiver. Connect the cables as shown.
I made the schedule as stated in the manual, but the motor runs in reverse, that is, to give all the power the engine forward, the buggy goes back to full power.
Why is this? Should I change the polarity in the connections? How should I do it?
I need help to avoid damaging the engine.
I await your response.
Thank you very much.
Somebody told on this tred that this would fit the older mini inferno, but then somebody stated that the mounting holes where 13 mm apparent wich is wrong for inferno as it mounting holes are approx 15,8mm appart.
So does this fit the older mini inferno?, thaks for the help.
the Turnigy ESC's can be programmed via your transmitter. Simply use the throttle for yes/accept and brake for skip to next option. Follow the instgructions for entering programming mode. Usually holding full throttle and starting ESC power and hold throttle til it enters programming mode.
Hi! Just sayin', it'd probably be a lot cheaper to find a smaller spur or a larger pinion gear for your car... a good gear is between three and ten dollars, as opposed to thirty-three some dollars plus shipping for a new motor/ESC combo. If it doesn't work to get a different gear, I would suggest then just buying a different motor (if you have the 4300kv combo already, you don't need another ESC). A good motor that I would recommend is the 6560kv motor from HK (product number is S2030-6570).
Have a good day!
Are you running with a LiPo battery? If so, what size? If you use a battery with a higher discharge rating, i.e. 50C versus 25C, you will see a noticeable difference. Along with what joshuav said about the gearing, if you have an adjustable diff and slipper, locking both of this down will more than likely help you achieve what you want! Be aware that you might strip some gears in the process.
I clocked my offroad mini t with road tires and 3s at over 70kph and it was still accelerating before running out of netball courts *)
put mine in the trunigy stadium truck 1/18 scale. stock gearing, bearings in truck. made the truck faster and more responsive. 2s 1300mah 20c battery. motor pulls 16.5 amps, truck speed is an estimate 30mph. I haven't put the temp gun on it yet but it is just warm to the touch. I will give more info as I get it. I recomend the program card, makes esc easy to use. I would compare it to my castle sidwinders but at a much better price. it is much better than the trucks stock esc since mine was doa. I recomend this setup.
Fantanstic!!! Use it in a Turnigy Stadium Truck 1:18... just built in and start without any adjustment. Works great and keep cool, but the gear from the Car are not so amused at 2S, with 3S i think the Car will be explode.
