    Sidewinder 3

    After some disappointing experiences with the Sidewinder 2, I decided to give the Sidewinder 3 a try.
    It's going to replace the Mamba Max Pro which I want to put in my Pede, because I don't trust the MMP in that one.

    Tomorrow I will do some testing to see if it pairs well with the Castle 4600Kv motor in it. The MMP never really got warm, so I guess the Sidewinder should be able to do a fine job.

    I have had no problems with my SW3 running with my 5700kv motor. But I only run on 2s...
    With great brushless comes great responsibility.

    I will run 2S most of the time, and occasionally 3S.

    Had quite some fun with my buddy. He with a stock VXL combo which got pretty hot while my Sv3/4600 stayed just cold.
    The most amazing difference were the acceleration and brake power. Mine made a front flip when I hit the brakes hard for the first time.

    A detail that I never noticed before is that the Sv3 is lower (simply because there is no fan on it) but also a tad wider and longer than the MMP.

    It may be clear that the Sv3 and me became good friends. Very satisfied user.

    Ya I love the braking with the SW3, it is almost to much though.
