    New Slash 4x4 MMM owner

    So I just bought a slash 4x4 from a guy off Craigslist. It has the mamba monster 2200 kv motor and monster max esc. He has the esc zip ties to the top of the battery compartment. Now when I swap the reciever box to the front mounting spot, do I need anything different or can I just unbolt and bolt it back down in the front? I am getting the esc mount tomorrow so I can mount the esc right in front of the motor. And I wanna know if there is anything else I need for swapping where the reciever box is to the front?( same screws?)

    I put the reciever box in the front of my first 4x4. All the same screws fit. Just be sure that he kit you get to mount your esc comes with screws.

    The really long screws right? And he has red wheels on the front and black rim wheels on the back. I believe the black wheels are from the ultimate edition. Not sure tho. Any suggestion on nice bashing/racing tires?

    the stock receiver box will fit, you just have to use the outer holes along the edge of the chassis. it sort of fits in an L shape around the servo. it's a tight fit but it'll work. most guys end up using the stampede 4x4 or rustler receiver box though. NICE buy for $200.

    here she is after i got the correct esc mount and correct reciever box, the stock reciever box would not fit in the front mounting position.

    yup sure does, the original one does not work cuz the mounting screws are on the side, not the long side.

    where is the set screw located? usually in most cases you can take a dremel with a disc on it and cut a slit in the screw then use a small flat head to back it out.

    do not drill it out. if you drill too deep you might go to far striking your slipper or center diff. i would definately get a dremel, they never let you down and you will use them constantly in this hobby, if you dont have the budget for that go get a stripped screw removal bit set for a drill at any hardware store. make sure the bits are small enough for the hex shape though.

    i just realized that it was one of the motor mount screws, there is nothing underneath the screw, i have about three quarters of the head of the screw off with my dremmel i got last night, now i just don't know how i am gonna get it out of the chassis, any ideas? i am really clueless about this one. and another question. how do you change the spur gear. i am going to try and start tearing this apart and cleaning it, and just to know how it all comes apart and goes together. anyone have a slash 4x4 with the mamba monster max 2200kv and can tell me how to gear it with 4s total lipos?

    you should not have dremeled the whole head off the screw. now its stuck in there. you should have put a disk head on the dremel and made a slit in the head, then used a flat head to take out the screw.

    how to change the spur, you have to take the entire rear end off, it is only four screws though so its not a big deal at all, then you will be able to slide the spur out then you take it apart to change it. and gearing depends on what you want your car to preform.
