    Mmp 2400

    Hey all,
    I got a castle mamba max pro with the 2400kv motor for my sc10 4x4 build however the motor did not fit the chassis. So I think I am going to put it in the rally instead. Any known issues with this? I think it will go nicely with my 3s lipo which would not fit the sc10 either.

    It bolts right up. I cut a piece of lexan and drilled holes for an ESC plate. Then mounted using velcro (or servo tape if you like). STRC has a plate available to mount the ESC.

    Cool. I used the same lexan method for a mount. Worked great thanks. This thing is just insane with this motor and a 11 3s lipo! Got it geared 19/54 and the motor barly seemed warm after a few minutes of running. Only issue is see is it is not as smooth at low peed as the venlion. The venlion seems to spin by hand much smoother than the castle 2400, but I assume that is because of the torque?

    Any of my big castle motors have been "tough" to turn, definitely harder than the Vilenion.

    Digger, what is your orange center-shaft???

    It is because they are 4 pole with strong magnets. The Velineon is 2pole. Also on 3s I would look into uprading the rear driveshafts.
    Traxxas gone bye bye!

    I shrink wrapped it. LOL no one seems to want to put out an orange one at the moment. maybe in due time STRC will step up to the plate.


    Yeah the 4-pole motors have some strong magnets. I'm curious about the tenshock 6-pole and how they are.

    Quick question on the motor's shaft .It's 1/8 shaft and I got an adapter that I thought I needed. However I was easily able to install the 19t pinion that came with the rally without any adapter. So what is the difference between a 1/8 motor shaft and sy the shaft on the stock venlion?

    They are both 1/8" or 3.2mm shaft size. The next size up in popularity is 5mm shaft. Which the SCT 3800kv has.

    Oh and you can upgrade the rotor/shaft to a 5mm one in the future of you like.

    Thanks. That explains it. And that was the adapter that I got as I thought I would need it.
