    I would think that they would have plenty of 32p 5mm pinions. They might have "Mod 0.8" pinions instead of 32p. "Mod 0.8" is metric. 32p = 0.79375 which is close enough to 0.8 that they are...

    I've tried 6s in my Monster Slash 4x4, using a Mamba Monster X (modded with large ESC fan) and Castle 2200kv 4074 motor, geared 18/54. It worked fine but there were limited situations where it made...

    I was using my Stampede 4x4 in a grass lot with a sidewalk on the side of it. The transition from the grass to the inside edge of the sidewalk was...

    Brushed and brushless model diffs come with different numbers of teeth. That gives you some options. What is your goal exactly?

    Does that mean that you were not able to calibrate it? Or, does that mean that you were able to calibrate it, but it did not fix the problem?

    Nice tires. But the fact that you are running 2.8 Monster Truck tires does not provide any explanation as to why your MIP CVDs are breaking. I've used 2.8" Monster Truck tires with my MIP CVDs for...

    Not sure how you are breaking your MIP axles on 3s. I and many others have sets that are 7+ years old. They work great on my Slash 4x4 Monster Truck (heavier than a Rustler 4x4) on 4s LiPo. The...

    I missed this with my previous post. The option to run an ESC in sensored mode (with a sensored motor) is completely optional. You could simply disconnect the sensor wire and it would automatically...

    Yeah, if it has a partial short-circuit, might as well go for a 2-for-1 and smoke the ESC also, right?

    There are only so many things inside a brushless motor that could burn to the point of releasing smoke. Mainly the epoxy that holds everything together.

    The 2400kv isn't "faster". The 2200kv, being a larger motor, has much more torque. That means you can easily gear higher to make up for the slightly lower KV.

    I ran a Mamba Max Pro (predecessor...

    I don't know that they actually sell the Mamba Monster X with the 2400kv motor as a combo. The 2400kv (3670 aka Hoss/Maxx sized) motor is sold in combos with the Mamba X and Sidewinder 4. The Mamba...

    The Mamba Monster 2 is the most capable out of those 3. It's their former top-of-the-line 8th scale ESC, but it's an older ESC that has been replaced by the Mamba Monster X. Unless you are getting...

    Yes, but that's not the only factor. You would not want to drive your full-sized car on the freeway in 1st gear, for example. The lower gearing would put less stress on the motor, but the high RPM...

    The 1410 3800kv motor is still not a big motor. It's about 3652, or about 2mm longer than the 1406 motors. Very similar to the size of the stock VXL motor. 3800kv is more workable than 4600kv, but...

    Yeah it can be just as fast if not faster depending on how you gear. Even if you only gear for equivalent speed, it will still have a LOT more torque.

    Well you have to tell us what budget you're working with.

    One setup that works very well, as long as you aren't trying to go sensored, is the Castle Sidewinder 8th + 2200kv motor combo.

    One thing to consider is how the width of the motor will affect your gearing. I run a Castle 1515 2200kv 4074 motor in my Slash 4x4 Monster Truck. I am running 18/54 gearing. That is very close to...

    18/54 is pretty high gearing for the 3500kv velineon system, particularly on 3s. You could drop down to the stock 13/54 gearing, and it should still be faster on 3s than 18/54 is on 2s.
