    I’ve found that when attaching the battery to the ESC, I greatly reduce the POP, by angling the connectors such that the positive terminal touches first. Seems to work on my Deans connectors.

    It would help to know what “top speed” you’re looking to achieve. The 14/54 combo suggested is good for about 30mph on 2s and closer to 50mph on 3s (theoretical).

    To keep temps down, you may need...

    I buy lead tape from Amazon. It’s the same stuff golfers use to add weight to their clubs. I cut off small squares and stick them to the inside of the wheel. Just pile it up until the wheel is...

    Speed Build - Sunday Experiment

    My son and I were bored, and so we decided to "speed-up" our speed build, by soldering together a battery adapter to allow us to run 2, 3S batteries on our Mamba X / Surpass 2600KV motor. The Surpass...

    Diameter, while using the stock motor plate. I was thinking of picking up an Arrma BLX 2050KV motor only because its affordable.

    Sorry, should have mentioned it's a LCG chassis. With that in mind, do you think my current MOD1 setup of 22/38 would still fit?

    Hi Everyone,

    Playing around with speed runs, and noticing some very high motor temps due to aggressive gearing / with 4S lipo, on the existing Castle 2400KV / Mamba X combo.

    Window Mask - Repainting a body

    Hey Guys,

    I'm repainting a body, and wanted some feedback on the best tape to use, to mask the windows. I've got painters tape, but was thinking duct tape would be better?

    Thoughts and...

    Yah, I swapped in an old 3 channel receiver and the mamba works fine. Going to order a replacement. Thanks for the feedback.
  14. Mamba X - Red Blinking Light, No Sounds, Not Arming

    Swapped my (working just fine) Mamba X / 2400KV system from one Slash 4x4 into another, and now, the ESC does not arm (no sounds / beeps), just sits there, with a red blinking light. According to the...

    You were my inspiration!

    I’ve got a “few” Slashes (one for each member of the family) , and they are all outfitted with either the Traxxas or Castle version of the 2400kv. Love it. Stays cool but...

    It would definitely be a fun project which in itself is worth the effort. For what you may invest (time and money) you may want to consider getting one of the aluminum chassis conversion kits (ex...

    The Castle 1415 2400kv motor paired with a Mamba X is another good option. I’ve got mine geared 20T/50T on 4s and it goes like stink. Stays well within temp range with this setup. On 3s, it’s...

    No worries.

    The MIPs are rock solid. Motor mount wise, I’ve got the King Headz in one Slash and the Traxxas version in the other 2. All have been reliable with no issues. There are a few clutch...

    I noticed higher motor temps, bashing with the 1/8 wheels when running the Velinion setup. Especially on 3s.

    Works fine, just watch your temps, especially in grass or sand.

    I’ve outfitted all my slashes with the e-revo slipper clutch setup (believe that’s parts 5351 and 5352r). Then add on an aluminum motor mount, ive got both the King Headz and the Traxxas version....

    The XO-1 chassis is much longer than the slash LCG. You’d pretty much need an entire XO-1 rolling chassis to make it feasible.

    Guys, I must be missing something because when I browse the parts listing for the E-Revo I see the clutch rebuild kit is 5352X whereas in the Slash 4X4 listing I see 5352R listed.
