    Of course they are good! But all you need is the mamba max pro. Castle creations or ebay

    So i went on that site and i am only seeing 1/10 scale to 1/18 scale do you have to make either of those work or do they make a special one for this size of car?

    OK.....the Velineon 380 is the stock size, and just happens to be a 380 size can (motor diameter). The Velineon 3500 is the stock for a 1/10th brushless, and is a 540 can, which is actually the same size can as the brushless version of the 1/16, thus the 540 can size WILL fit with the right motor mount, and this is what a lot of people are doing, putting a 540 can brusless into their 1/16 using either the brushed motor mount or an aftermarket one. As for the other motors, it would take some really ingenious modding to get them to fit in a 1/16 car.

    this might be a typo on your part, but the BRUSHLESS is a 380 size, not a 540!

    the velineon 3500 is a 540 sized motor, the same size, as what comes in a BRUSHED version of the 1/16

    nothing 1/18th scale will stand up to the traxxas minis... unless you like fried parts and replacing htings a second time

    Look at the size of pinion you would need on that sucker!

    I see bent motor plate in this dude's (or dudette's) future.

    Completely useless to put such a motor in a Merv. You will find no battery that is able to feed it sufficient.

    Man that is some motor on there that's what I thought maybe a 32t pinion would work or a 40t more lol. I don't see it working right on take I think it would just strip or snap everything to pieces.

    Never would have guessed your could make a Mamba 1/8 can fit let alone potentially work.
    But so terribly pointless, yet cool. Im torn.

    notice on the rear shocks all the way compressed? man that things hits from off the curb maybe good by to the chassis, the rx is a no no there imagine if that thing gets interferrence ooh boy total that would be killer funny there that much work and money into it for a cheap AM RX!!!??? , looking at it i dont think the tranny would hold up to the power much either you'll strip the spur gear within a couple mins or just shatter the tranny inside.
