    Not always/entirely correct. Even with the Mamba X, I can think of at least three very valid reasons for running an external BEC.

    I know exactly what you mean. That's why, for "Project Predator", instead of using the (used) Traxxas 17mm hex adapters I had initially bought, I decided to go with the Tekno M6 17mm hex adapters. ...

    True. Any themselves paste designed for computer CPUs will work great. However, before you start applying any, first, test-fit the heatsink, to see how loose/tight it is. If tight, or even...
