    Mamba MONSTER 2200 or mamba max pro sct

    I want to upgrade the vxl system to a mamba. I know the monster is the bigger on and I would get 2200kv. But is it 4 pole like the mmp. I also like the mamba max pro sct and I know it is 4 pole but I don't know what kv to get. I want to know witch is faster and more efficient on a 3-6s lipo I already have a 3 but will be buying a 6s thanks

    I would suggest the MMP/2400 combo. Has more than enough power for a Slash. Geared 20/54 on 3s, mines pulling the front wheels up on hardpack dirt with a sandy very loose top layer on Calibers. That surface is extremely hard to get that kind of traction on, but the 2400 has the tourque to do it. Even my MMM/2200 Revo on 4s with much wider Badlands has trouble with it.

    The MMM/2200 is an awesome setup, but is overkill and not needed in a smaller truck like the Slash. The 2400 has more torque than the Slash can handle or can put to the ground already. No need for the 2200.

    Save the additional $100 it would cost for the MMM/2200, and buy some stronger driveshafts and a good set of tires.

    MMP can handle 6s. The MMP SCT is recommended for 4s, but it doesn't mean it can't handle 6s lipo.

    MMP/2400 is great for the slash on 3s or 4s.

    I think you are forgetting about the 2650 motor. The 2400 is an excellent setup! I got mine when they were first released and it has been very good to me. I might go with the 2650 just to have that added power. They are all great motors

    I picked up my 2200 combo just for overkill. Got lucky and picked it up for a lul more than the 2400. Just pulling in the upgrades before she goes in. The I'm going to toss her in one of the pede 4x4's for giggles. Then again thinking of selling her downthe road for the 2400 and keep the mamba esc...

    I am always after more power and speed but I don't think I'd upgrade my 2400 for the 2200. The 2400 with 4s at 22/50 is more than I can handle. I typically run 22/52 with 3s and it is just about perfect. Fast enough to do whatever I want it to but controllable enough to play with.

    Nice. Two questions. What should I hear it for 3s I run on a off road. And proline street fighters or traxxas anacondas for street tires. Thanks

    How are you keeping the front tires on the ground? Loose slipper? Mine is 1/2 turn out and still flips over when I punch it. How's your punch control / throttle curve set?
