    Buy an ERBE or Mamba monster motor and esc???

    Alright over the past week I have gotten back into the hobby by buying a platinum slash and a summit. About 2 years ago when the EMBE came out I bought one of them but in all honesty it always broke something. Here is my thoughts. The wife may kill me if I mention buying another rc so I think I may have came up with a plan. I love the fact that the summit is waterproof so I was thinking of buying the mamba monster and mmp that the EMBE and the ERBE come with and when I want speed swap motor and esc out. Other than gearing and tires will I have to make any major changes so I could run the mamba monster? I will only be running 2s lipos. Thanks.

    Maybe the MMP with the 2650kv?

    I already bought proline trencher x tires and wheels that I am running. Will the motor drop in or do I need to modify anything?

    Stop right there MM ESCs are not waterproof from the factory. I run the ERBE MMP set-up in my Summit, no mechanical changes needed IMO however you may want a wheelie bar

    I would suggest that you just go with Tekin RX8 esc/T8 Motor combo. You can get the power you want when you want it, and it is sensored so it will crawl like a champ. At that point, you don't have to pull motors and switch them, you can just run it the same all of the time. You would have to waterproof the set up by yourself with plastic dip though if you wanted it to be waterproof, but it does void the warranty. Also, outerwears are your friend. Oh and if you decide to go with this set up..... +1 on the wheelie bar

    Thank you all for the help. Like I said I love the that the summit is waterproof and I have decided to just keep the summit with stock motor and esc. I am on my way home now from the lhs with a new ERBE in my back seat. Thats $2100 this week in new rc's and now I must spoil the wife a bit before she kills me! LOL.
