    Only thing I see is the esc is mounted in the wrong location. The 4x4 slash chassis has mounting location for the Mamba monster esc where the stock esc mounts. You just need the castle mount for it and relocate the receiver box. Looks like a steal at $200.

    He must have taken that off an erbe to have dual plugs. You will have to cut the 2 wires and put one male plug on the end and throw away the conected 2 plug

    Nothing special. Just mount it like in the pic. Use the same mounting screws.

    It's OK to run nimh's. You'll wanna get a castle link so you can check the esc settings. Just make sure low voltage cutoff is on when running lipos and off when running nimh's.
