I appreciate all the advice I have been given thus far for my newly purchased Erevo Mamba.
I couldn't wait for my roll cage, used it today and flipped it really hard on the body on cement. Now when I cycle the ESC at the start, the fan does not come on at all. From appearances, the fan blades seem to be in tact. This thing is a monster though. It still runs just fine, but knowing the fan is not engaging, makes me real nervous about running 6s, and pretty nervous about a 4s.
What could be wrong if esc still works fine but fan won't spin? (Only reply if you own or are very familiar with mamba esc's)
Thanks in advance for your reply.
You can get a replacement fan from castle really cheap or free if your car is new. The fan comes on at 150 and I would not run without it. The Hobbyshop may have one as well. Check the connection wire it may be unplugged, I can't see the fan breaking on a roll or jump
You shouldn't have any issues running 4s with reasonable gearing and no fan. Just watch the temps.
Try spraying the fan with some lube. I used silicone spray on mine.

Make sure it is still pluged in, & doesn't have a rock or something blocking the fan from spinning.
Would you go flip my truck back over??
My fan started a few days ago making strange sounds (sometimes), maybe because there is sand in because I was drivning in loose sand.

an outerwears shroud or something or are there better things available in Europe or in the UK that you know of?
a trick i used before i started unning outerwears, is i will cut a peice of a bounce dryer sheet to fit in between the ESC and the mount. stops the majority of debris from having a chance to get in there. It isnt perfect, but it stops grit from getting in the top.
(RAH)² (AH)³ + [ROMA (1+MA)] + (GA)² + (OOH)(LA)²
Just get the outerwears or a dusty motor shroud, both are great
did you buy a replacement? mine on my maxx went out and i ordered a muchmore racing ultra high speed 30mm fan .should slide right in -might have to solder to old plug but will flow more air!
