    Mamba monster 2

    I just got a new Mamba Monster 2 2650 in my slash LCG, Can someone explain to me how to reduce the back end from spinning out on the corners....
    thanks for the input.

    Ps I LOVE my new MM2

    Normally a center diff will help, but I hear the center diff will only hold up to 2s. The motor you are running would probably cause some issues for the center diff.

    Is it spinning out under power or off power? Changing the oil in the rear diff, along with changing alignment and shock settings can help too.
    Cheap, Fast, Reliable. Pick 2.

    I hate to sound like a wise guy, but...throttle control!

    i am practicing throttle control, lots more power than the old system, Iv been reading about differant oil weights in the rear vs front diff,but not sure were to start. Its mostly applying throttle comming out of the turns. I have stiffer springs and set up the shocks for stiffer ride, would dropping the ride height make any diff?
    thanks for the input.

    Most definitely, lowering your center of gravity = better handling. The other guys can provide better direction as to exactly how much you can lower it, but I would say that even 1/4" would make a big difference.

    If you have the castle link you can play with the throttle curve and make it more like a ramp, and also using the punch control helps set it at 100%, then if that's too much control just lower it. Good luck and have some fun, I suggest getting a castle link or field programmer card and read the castle creations drivers Ed manual on their website might help as well, explains what the different settings do. God bless.

    Thanks guys, I have not started playing with the settings yet, althogh FYI I purchased the Field link card. I couldnt get it to update the firm ware so I called Castle. They stated that the Field link dosnt work with the MM2 yet, they have to update the firmware, they went on to say that they have some more products comming out and that they were waiting to put it out all at once. I am able to use the card as a link to the PC , but we will have to wait to use the field card.

    The drag brake can still be enabled causing it to brake with no throttle. That could cause some undesired spin outs.

    I never thought about that, I do have the drag brake set to 10%, I will try it with it off.
    thanks!
