Anyone running a mumba monster?
If anyone one is running a mamba monster in there Spartan, would you mind sharing what you set up is?
(I just bought a Mamba Monster pack with 1406 5700kv 4 pole with Mamba Max Pro ESC. ESC runs 6s Lipo, but motor runs 3s Lipo.)

Wrong size motor = too many rpms and likley to wreck something. Most people try to stay in the 1600kv motor range
As stated above, the 5700 kv motor is designed for RC car/truck use as there is a gear reduction, the Spartan is direct drive and just way too many RPM's for use in a direct drive boat.
I use the 5700 kv Castle motor in boath of my 2wd Slashes and they perform quite well in them.
Most rc boats use motors that do not exceed 2200 RPM's.
