    Which one? Mamba monster 2 2200 or 2650

    Hi guys I'm having a little trouble deciding which combo to get. Either the mamba monster 2 2200 of 2650. I'll be running 3s and i'm not looking for as much speed as torque. Thanks for all your help

    I'd say 2650, I have the 2200, and I run 4s and 6s

    No matter what packs are being used if I have to choose between the two I would choose the 2650. You cant run it above 4s but there is no need to. Either motor produces more torque than the slash 4x4 will ever need.

    2650 would seem to be the overall better choice. Both motors are overkill for the truck. The 2650 is just more manageable overkill.

    I went through the same thing. After talking to Castle, I decided on the 2650 because I plan on 3s for most of the time. I'm using the 18t pinion (Seems conservative) that came with it and I'm having trouble keeping it straight when I nail the throttle. ALOT of fun but I need to retrain my throttle control.

    I have both motors and I prefer the 2650 especially of your only going to use 3s. You can run a 6s with that motor but its not recommended but if you want to see what it will do for like a speed run it shouldn't hurt the motor.

    Thanks guys, well now that I know I'll be getting the 2650, I guess my next question would be gearing 19/54?

    on my 2650 i run 20/54 and there still a ton of torque so you could even run a smaller spur for more speed. i believe you might be about to get a 22t pinion but that would be the max cause a bigger one will not fit

    Hi guys would this combo fit the slash? (Castle Mamba Monster Neu V3 1/8 ESC + 2200KV Motor) I'm a newbie have no clue with the motor esc selection. This setup might be coming my way! + what battery 3s? 4s? Thanks

    yes it will fit, the 2200 likes 4s better. the only thing you will need is a 5mm pinion

    Could you still use 20/54 with the 2200?

    Yes that will work but you will have to get a 20t 5mm pinion make sure it's a 32 pitch

    Honestly it's up to you

    Try a 2200
    More power when you want

    Try a 2650
    More rpm per volt
    Only 4s

    Also, will this motor just mount on the stock motor plate?

    With a 2200 motor, I'd suggest checking out mod-1 spurs and hardened steel pinions. Traxxas uses those on the xo-1, which has a similar size motor to the 2200.
