    Mamba monster esc and vxl motor ?

    Just wondering if I can run a mamba monster esc with the stock vxl 3500 motor. Will it cause problems over heating if I run 4/5/6s lipos ? The main reason I want to use the mamba is so I can run more volts for more power and longer run times. I just bash so no racing at all. Any body run a similar set up ?

    I don't think the motor will handle 4S and up. It barely handles 3S.

    ESC will work fine with the motor you will just need to change the connectors

    Stock motor does not like anything over 3s

    If you plan to run higher voltages you will need a different motor

    Cheers

    Not sure why you want to run 6s

    4s with the right motor is good for 70 mph, plenty fast enough for bashing

    More power = less runtime
