    I just got my Mamba Max Pro today that I ordered for my 2wd slash. I ordered a 5700 which I think is far to much and they screwed up and sent me a 6900. I bought new gears but I still don't think I can run it in the slash. I will need to find someone needing a motor and order a 4600.

    Did you get the programmer with the ESC? Mine came with a coupon for a free USB one or $10 for the field programmer... I hope I can run the 5700 but I think I'm going to run into heat issues.

    Very cool video. We have a big RC expo this weekend I took a couple days off for. I will have tons of videos and photos to upload.

    Yeah I bought the castle link I had one but misplaced it...lol had to get another one. I have the punch control set at 80% which help tone things down a bit.

    Thanks, still need to adjust the camera a bit only transmitter. Sucks they sent you the wrong motor, awesome sounds like it will be alot of fun. Can't wait to see the videos.

    I'm right on the fence of trying the 6900 to see what it does. Everyone is telling me it will get very very hot and burn things up.

    Dang, I guess I'm late to this party. Started with a "Frog" years ago. Yes you had to buy a Frog for a motor, it was Flintstones style. Then every decade or so bad to try the latest offerings from the RC gods. Bought a Tmaxx and was hooked again. Threw more money at it than anyone thought possible. Then the Nexus 30 heli. A couple more all wheel drive cars. Everything nitro. Then a slash, and electric helis.

    Yup, had to stuff a big block into the Tmaxx. Wheelies for days, or just flip itself on its back.

    The thing that really annoyed me was Traxx's using Cubic inches instead of staying with the CC standard in the industry. Their 3.0 was an 18 and I would stand in line at the HS arguing to some kid that indeed my 21 was bigger than his 3.0.

    OS 21. Tried the 18s, megatech comes to mind, junk. The 3.3 is a 20 not sure if it is a small block still or a big block. The OS 21 is available with pretty much any configuration needed. Pull start, starter box start. Cranks. Etc. Best HP and RPMs. If indeed the 3.3 is a small block you'll need a big block motor mount. Pretty cheap.

    Just checked, OS makes a model specific for the Tmaxx. Just remember on a 2 stroke the power is adjustable with the pipe/expansion chamber. A good designed pipe kicks butt.
