The guys over on reddit said it shouldn't be a problem since you have grub screws to hold the flywheels in place. But for those of you wanting to run them you're better off going thru blastertech. They're more expensive but basically come like the hellcat pictured.

I like it better than the stock ones. I have some metal triggers and mag releases ordered to see which I like better.

In Topic: Best motors for a rapidstrike on 3S Lipo?

22 December 2016 - 05:42 PM

I know you said 130 only, but I used all Hellcats on my Rapidstrike and they're the nuts.
Flywheels rev up in about 150ms and the pusher cycle takes about 110ms.
Dynamic braking is also great. No pusher overshoot at all and flywheels come to a complete stop in about 100ms.
The motors don't really protrude too far through the shell. You could patch the holes with some styrene if you don't have access to a 3d printer.

This! I initially bought rhinos to put in mine and changed my mind and ordered the hellcats and will just use a rhino for the pusher. I think on my next rapidstrike I'm gonna try the Xtreme 180s.

I think blastertech rates the MTB Rhinos on a 3s lipo at 10 dps. Probably your best bet for 130 motors is to get three of them.

Edit: they have them at 9 dps so if you need it over 10 dps get a honey badger for the pusher motor.


In Topic: Hyperfire Battery Question

Don't buy normal rechargeable batteries. Your performance will suck. The easiest thing for you to do is but a set of Efest IMR batteries, a couple dummy batteries, and AA to D converters. Then run 2 IMR and 2 dummies. The IMR batteries are rechargeable but are 3.7V each so they'll give you a nice little boost in performance.
