    VXL3S or MMP or RX8

    Hi Guys
    I recently was forced to purchase a new motor. my 3500 vilenion delaminated and is on the way to Texas and i could not wait for the return of a new one because i was going out of town. Anyway I ended up with the only thing in town a Novak HV 4.5t. I am running it with the vxl3s. I have been told that I should run the RX8 and I have read on the forum that quite a few people run the MMP. In my research i found that continuous amp from the RX8 was 210 and the vxl3s is 200 and i could not find what the MMP is. The Motor runs ok with the vxl however i was expecting more punch and im dissapointed in run time. however i am farely happy with temps. I was contimplaiting changing my esc for two reasons, one more punch, two to have a vxl set up for a new project. My question is, is it worth it to shell out the dow for such a small power difference? If so wich one?Am i gonna see more punch? How much? I use my truck to bash on 3s from time to time and run on a indoor clay track on a 2s. Thanks for the imput!!

    Since that motor is sensored it will be great to run it with a sensored wire and the proper esc, the MMP will be enough to run that motor.

    As I said I am running the vxl3s wich is sensored and I am running the sensor. I am not looking to find an esc to be "enough" i am looking for an upgrade from the vxl3 and just not sure the other two mentioned are worth the cost of the upgrade in performance difference. Or if i should just stay with the vxl

    The MMP is way better, than the velienon esc it can run up to 6s lipo, it support 1/8 scale motor, and it will run cooler. IMO it is an upgrade well worth the money.

    so whats the deal with the programing on the mmp? do you need a laptop with a special cable and software. do these things come with the esc or are they an extra charge? can u make changes without a laptop at the track? and also will it work with my traxxas 2.4ghz system as a plug and play?

    The MMP is the ESC, you don't need a computer but it is alot easier to program with one and the cable/plug. Yes the Traxxas 2.4 will work with it. Software is free from Castle. ANy other ???

    The MMP is excellent with the Novak sc motors! I had a MMP connected to a Novak sc 5.5. Wow talk about power and smooth takeoff! It turns the Slash into a crawler. The will love the MMP
