    Hey guys,
    i have a stock ICS CXP16L and was wondering if it will pull ics m130 spring comfortably?

    The current motor is ICS turbo 3000 long.
    im using a 7.4V lipo battery
    Thanks! :)

    Not with a ICS turbo 3000, and you didn't say what battery you are using?

    Even a stock TM or CA motor will pull an M130 spring on standard ratio gears with a high discharge battery. The ICS 3000 is a relatively high TPA motor with neodymium magnets, it should pull an M130 without too much trouble. I don't recommend installing an M130 spring without upgrading the gearbox.

    Yes that ICS Turbo 3000 will pull the spring. Of my knowledge, it is around 20 tpa and with 18:1 gears, there's no problem. But just like Lefse said, use a higher discharge lipo. Try something like a 7.4 lipo 25-50c discharge and try not to get one less than 1500 mah.
