    Keep the stock ones as spares for just in case you ever have an issue with the single one. Itís much simpler to install just one that is for sure. It took me a good while to get my 2 servo setup to...

    I would get XT150ís instead of xt90ís for the Xmaxx. That esc is rated at 160a. Just some food for thought.

    Yep, just replace the dual battery harness and use just 2 wires and one connector. Should work just fine that way. As for motor/esc combo, the castle creations mamba x and 2400kv motor seem to do a...

    If it runs off the receiver then itís most likely 6v, and for low beams just drop the voltage a bit. 5v should do the trick.

    So sorry. Was looking at the specs for the max 6. You are 110% correct. Max 5 is 200a ESC. Definitely want XT150ís or 8mm bullet connectors for it. No way XT90ís to traxxas adapters going to...
