Hi, i have a revo 3.3 roller i got used of gumtree, should i slap a picco .28 on it or mamba? i just want to know what has more power, i don't really care about the noise or smoke, i've never used a nitro before just electric.
Mamba would smoke it and leave it. It in its dust
i think you should try nitro since all you have now is electric, just about every rc hobbyist has a nitro
get out 50t, mamba would smoke it tho in the long run and less maintenance.
this is electric section, so i'm going to say go with the MMM lol. never tried mounting a BB on my revo, but i did with my t-maxx and i have more time fixing it than playing it.
humay has left the building, peace.
Your not asking the correct questions if you can't decide on nitro or mmm. Yes the brushless will be (much) faster. If that's your only factor, fine. Pure power isn't why people like nitro now though. It's the experience. The mechanicals. The sound.
You shouldn't get one or the other based purely on performance.
If you want nitro get the picco. If it's not for you, stick with electric.
It took me a while to go electric. I have a 23 sirio t maxx and a 2.5 t maxx and 1/8 scale buggy.
Love the sound and the smell but sometimes I like going out front for five or ten minutes .nice to just throw the batteries in and go .
Of course with brushless you should store the batteries at storage charge but I have a few cheap batteries I keep charged all the time
I had the JL red dot .28...
Great power & power curve gas will kill you in the long run & you may not get as much run time & tuning is the other issue.
picco great reliable motors, can't go wrong...
On the other hand I can say the mamba power is instant no lag, I have 6s in my ERBE & love it... I still have to mess with the castle link but once I do that I'm sure I'll never go back to nitro...
Hope this help
I had the picco. I absolutely loved that engine. Almost never needed tuning...very fast...but the mamba will smoke it on all levels.
I race Associated, I bash Traxxas. 28 years in RC
If you go electric save your self the hassle and buy a chassis with associated hardware, tranny, and shafts.
