    No chance

    Element is a rebadged Sidewinder and they are not suitable for any motor on 3s in these cars

    On 3s or 2s a lot od people have been using the Mamba Max Pro SCT 2400kv Combo. great mix of tourque and speed.

    Depends what voltage you plan to run

    If you are running 2s only you can get away with a higher kv rated motor

    If you plan to run 3s or above you will need a lower kv rated motor

    MMP-2400 will do great on 3s, also MMP-2650.

    Short answer, no. Mamba Max Pro or Monster Max ESC to handle that motor in the Slash 4x4. Or you could do a Mamba Max Pro SCT 2400 combo on 3s/4s, or if you have to stick with 2s for ROAR rules you could do the Mamba Max Race Pro (Max Pro ESC, 1410-3800 motor w/5mm shaft).
