    Ordered my new 2200....

    Igot it for 125 shipped it is brand new. Good deal?

    I have every upgrade necessary as i currently run the 2400 system.

    How can i connect the motor to my MMPro esc easily. I know the bullet connectors are bigger 6.5mm on this one. Can i find those connectors at my local Big box store?

    I know i need different pinions since the shaft is bigger as well.

    Anything else i need?? cant wait to try it!

    There are many manufacturers of 6mm bullets but 6.5mm are limited to Castle or Tekin. Tekins are $9.50 to $15 so...

    you'll probably want to stick with Castle connectors. here's a link to the kind you need.
    http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXTJJ0&P=ML

    here's the page for soldering materials. just make sure you get atleast a 60W iron and watch a couple of you tube videos on how to properly solder. i can't tell you how many people walk into the lhs that i wrench at that do a such poor job with their joints that they end up frying their esc as a result. poor joints lead to resistence and resistence is an esc killer.

    while you're at it , you might add this too....

    they help with controlling voltage spikes that can otherwise ruin escs.

    and depending if you're running a split series connector (these are Dean's) or you're going to run a series adapter for your esc an battery, you might need this too:

    hope that helps!

    also...with a motor as strong as the 2200, i deceided to run revo gears. they're bigger teeth, and hold up better imo better than the stock pitch:

    pinions:

    I'll say this...the perfect gearing fo me has been 38/15 on 4S. I can get right over 80mph with that setup on the 2200 and my motor stay right around 165 degrees.

    Or can i just cut the esc connectors and solder the esc wires to the motor wires Then shrinkwrap the connections so they dont touch

    that's true too...just make sure you get a good flow of solder into the wires. it should look like the wires completely absorbed all of the solder and spread slightly up the wire in both directions. chunky, surface deep soldering with bare spots lead to big resistence.

    Exactly, so go with the Castle Creations bullets.

    FWIW, I has the same situation so I made 4mm to 6.5mm adapters with a very short length of 12AWG wire. Adapters are bad, but if done well these will cause negligible loss.

    The 6.5mm's are ginormous. I was shocked when I went to solder on a set. I had been accustomed to the 3.5 and 4.0's.

    Thanks, I ordered 38 and 40 tooth mod 1 gears and 12, 13, 14 tooth to keep it somewhat under control. I will creep up the gears soon i'm sure. I may have went a little conservative, what do you guys think? I will be running 3s and 4s

    Even gearing conservative, you'll be shocked at the difference in power and top end between the 2200 and 2400. 38/14 on 4S will get you in the 75+mph range. I'm not sure about the speeds of it on 3S geared like that...i would expect in the 55-60 mph range running very cool with TONS of room to gear up.

    Are you using a 4s pack or two 2s packs?

    What punch control setting will you use with the MMP? You might tear out those driveshafts with that monster powerplant you're dropping in. Lol

    1 4s pack. I will turn down punch control a bit. I run MIP shafts all the way around. They will be put to a serious test for sure. I am going to run my 3s pack first

    OK. Its installed. Only had 10 minutes to run it. The torque on this is crazy! Running 14/40 mod 1 gears. Going to run a full pack and see the temps. Probaly going to gear up a few teeth. Going to try to get some video as well

    It's craazy powerful, isn't it? I love this setup. I run a 15t and the motor stays around 140 -165 depending onhow hot it is outside... It's alot of fun!
