    Installing MM 2200kv. Need help please.

    Hi guys.

    I will be installing Mamba Monster 2200kv combo into my EREVO (currently running with Novak HV Pro 6.5 combo). As far as I know rest of the car is stock. I will start running it on existing 4S LiPo.

    I know that Mamba Monster puts a lot of stress on other components in 6S setup. But for my 4S do i need to upgrade anything else? Or will stock parts cope with it? Any advise on gearing ratio, punch control, throttle and other settings would be highly appreciated.

    Stock parts will be fine, but shimming the diffs never hurts. 18/54 is a good gear ratio to start and then fine tune to your driving style and temps.

    you can do 18/54 or 21/65 which are gears Traxxas recommends to give you speed if you do not want to change spur gear but just the pinion. I do 18/54 and it runs great on 4s and MM 2200 KV and the rest stock parts.. no problems, just great

    The only thing I upgraded (besides motor plate and cover) when I went from stock e-revo to the MMM 2200kv was getting the 17mm wheel adapters and currently have 17/68 running 2 x 2s 6000mah 60c lipos and have had no issues so far on parts wearing (been only a month or so).

    Handy castlelink setup guide, should cover the bases quite well.

    Gearing is covered in the manual/ on the BL ERevo pages with a handy chart:



    Otherwise refer to the gearing calculator and the section on gearing within my Tutorials page ( 2. 14 ):
