    A little new to slash

    ive been running a rustler for a long time now and finally got a slash. just took the mamba 5700 kv motor and installed it in my slash. What should i expect to like or hate on the slash? also, any good upgrades it is bone stock for the most part?

    I have that motor and it will run hot, your going to have to gear it down, and watch the temps. You would be better off getting a motor somewhere in the 2000 to 4000 kv range.

    Yeah you will have to be really careful gearing that motor. With the motor's high kv rating and the weight of the slash, it will run hot. I would recommend a castle 3800 if you want to stick with castle products.

    LOW. 16/90 may even be pushing it a bit with that motor - best going as low as you can, probably 12 or 14/90 and as others have said you need to watch temps.
