I broke down this week and decided that for my Emaxx truck I would just use a single VXL system. So I got a VXL system just for the EMAXX and a 14 tooth pinion, hoping that will allow me to go as fast as I’ll want in the snow without overheating anything. Here it is pushing a snow plow. The VXL Brushless Motor should give me plenty of power during the winter and I can use my sensored brushless Novak HV system during the summer.
If your Looking to Do a Single VXL System
Hooking one up is easy! Like I said you probably want to by a pinion with less teeth so that the motor doesn’t over heat. This means the car won’t go quite as fast, but the 150+ that you spent on a motor will last you longer. The install is pretty simple, I’ll be posting pictures of my install soon.

Wanna see what you can do in an EMAXX with just one VXL motor and 3 cells?
Here’s what it can do in the winter time.
