    Question Mamba Sidewinder esc/motor?

    I was wondering, is the Castle Creations Mamba Sidewinder esc and motor cmbo good for this truck or is it just a waste of money to put in the 4x4? If anyone is using this setup feel free to chime in please.

    I don't think the motor would do good in it: http://monster.traxxas.com/showthread.php?t=518168

    The Sidewinder ESC would work great though.

    The sidewinder esc is only rated for 80amps, so in some situations it might limit you a bit as the Slash 4x4 can draw more then 80amps.

    Sidewinder 80 amp
    Mamba Max 100 amp
    Mamba max pro 120 amp
    Just as a reference, also the mamba max pro has a very very high bust amp rating. Probably 300+
