    Cool. I probably should of asked before I bought them unmounted, could of saved myself the trouble. Oh well, they were cheaper that way atleast.

    The MAX6 is the same as the fuse 160. Maybe a typo on their end.

    I got the badlands mounted up, the 2085x servo in and the punch turned down to 1. It is literally a different truck now. The handling and manageability has increased ten fold. Completely satisfied and happy with the motor now. It has more potential, but I'm totally happy with where it's at for now. I might look into upgrading the ESC fan. It got all the way up to 158 degrees, motor got up to 124. I might grab a 20 tooth pinion first as it has more than enough speed for my size yard. Thank you guys for all your advice, especially the Badlands, world changer. I'm pretty stoked that I ended up getting exactly what I was hoping for out of it, mostly to you fine people's previous trials and tribulations. That's what this community is supposed to be for and i highly, highly appreciate it.

    Got fed up trying to get to my reciever box under the ESC mount, went through all the spare parts I had and came up with this. I wasn't sure how water tight the box I was using was, I'm a lot more confident with this setup that everything will stay dry. I switched over to a futaba R304SB-E while I was at it. Probably better off anyways, now I can tune it down and adjust the throttle curves a little.
