    Whats your max speed???

    Everybody post up the top speed you got and the battery/pinion combo.

    It'd be interesting to know what kind of top speeds people are getting with different setups

    PE with MMM 2650, 22t pinion54t spur, 4s ******* 5000mah...gps said 56.6mph. truck is way to unstable to go any faster...IMO

    Pe with vxl with 18t pinion, 54t spur, on 3s ******* 5000mah...gps 52.8mph.

    I had the truck set as low as possible, and it was still very unstable!!!

    The MMM consistently destroys the front shafts...ugh!

    They don't break, they just twist enough to become very difficult to slide!

    ~400mph on the plane over from Asia. Stock gearing, stock ESC/motor. Wind wasn't an issue in flipping over. It was literally box stock going that fast...

    seems like its a waste of time and money to put the MMM in.

    only benefit might be the reduction in heat. but those speeds are very very close, but far far from 80mph that traxxas claimed

    60.3mph. Mamba Max 5700, Thunder Power ProRace 40c 3s, Anacondas, Bajr body. Obviously not stock, but fast. Very "adventurous" handling. Had to use the yellow stripe in the middle as a target and hope it didn't drift too far one way or the other.

    LOL! Thats grass. By the time I got it shutdown after a pass it usually ended up off the left side of the street tumbling toward an empty lot.

    I like the MMM, I can run those speeds all day and never get the esc or motor over 90 degrees! I can't run a whole 3s through my vxl without 200 degree temps!!!

    I race my buddies with their vxl's on 3s and my MMM on 3s is just as fast, but I can run it a lot harder than they can. (The VXL gets way too hot)

    I think the truck could hit 70mph plus with the MMM and proper setup.

    I got it to 66mph today....but had a tough time keeping it in control, it seriously wants to take off and fly! I am using the stock tires, 54t spur, 22t pinion and 4s 5000mah ******* 20c.
    Break it, so you can upgrade it!
