    Mamba max pro with Velineon motor

    Hey,
    Before i install my Mamba max pro esc in my slash 4x4 i was wondering how many lipo cells can i run in it. I know the MMP is rated for 2-6 cells. Can the velineon motor only take 3S still or can it take 4S as well? i know the stock esc can only take 3S. Thanks.

    I suggest running it at 4s only if you have a fan/heatsink combo on it. Otherwise, it will pretty much bake due to the excessive heat. You can run 3s safely though.

    I've ran 4s just fine. It was just too insanely fast that I had to stop.

    A fully charged 4s pack is actually 16.8v so that would put it outside the motor's comfort zone at 58,800

    Unless geared very conservatively it would melt pretty quick

    Stick with 3s

    Cheers
