Anybody runnin brushless micro RS4's

Why go 540 when you can go brushless. I'm running a 8000kv Mamba Castle ESC and 11.1 volt lipo YES 88,800 RPMs nothing will touch it But I am having trouble keeping the tires on the rims. Any suggestions?

It's pretty much the same effect as putting a top-fuel drag engine in a Yugo...

Try using "gorilla glue" on the tires. That stuff will repair concrete. You can find it at hardware stores...Good luck.
If it don't fit, force it...If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.

How does the spur gear hold up w/ brushless? Unless I kept on setting the gear mesh too loose or tight it would eat up a spur gear every few races. I think i went through about 3 of them over the course of 4 months?

I always figured it was just the metal pinion on the plastic spur.

With my 2 540s if I get the mesh wrong, it eats spurs. A friends 9 cell 1400 nimh 480 brushless is probably a little kinder to the spur.

As to the brushless vs 540 debate, it's an old one. quite a few of us have both. I can tell you that my 6 cell 2200mah, 11 turn 540 mrs4 is a great deal of fun to drive
