Hello, I've been researching lately on different types of motor/esc setups for my Emaxx and I have been had trouble finding posts that relatively current. So here is what I got, any input is appreciated. Yes, this likely has been covered before.
I just ordered an 3908 E-maxx roller and want to make it the ultimate basher. I was planning on getting just the Mamba monster 2200kv setup that comes stock with the current 3908 emaxx but I am prizing the waterproof aspect of bashing more then just top speed.
With that being said, what is a the best setup to get for an Emaxx that's waterproof? I am leaning towards duel velineon VXL. My main question is there any other options to get a waterproof brushless setup for an Emaxx?
If not, does anyone have any good related posts to for duel velineon emaxx builds.
I used to have a Revo VXl that was pretty fun for bashing, I remember that thing being
a tank and awesome for rainy days...

Dual velineon esc's are limited to 3s lipo's, get the mamba monster 2 it's waterproof with 6 s capability

The smartest person, asks the most questions...
yup that is the new castle MMM2. i would still not get it wet but then again castle has a good warranty department i hear i havent used it but some have and have had good results.
I would say what are you planning to stay with 4s or try 6s?
i have a hobbywing wp sc8 esc w/2000kv xerun 4274 motor from HW as well and but is limited to 4s max which is plenty and its waterproof i have had mine wet and its still running.

Yea I was just going to stick with 4s. I heard 6s is overkill. I just wanted it to be decently fast with waterproof capabilities, mainly for bashing.
then the setup i mentioned is something you can look into. here's a site i got mine from they have some pinions as well there too and a cooling fan for the motor but its not needed at all i never get over 126f ever running 21/65 gearing.
if you order from them choose express shipping alot faster i got mine in 3-5 days from date of ordering to California.

Yea, I am going with the Mamba 2. I just got confused or am curious about 2 things here. Why doesn't traxxas just include the mamba monster 2 with the emaxx stock? I mean if it can support up to 6s and be waterproof??? the motor looks like its the same?? Also they advertise it for 1/8th scale buggies and monster trucks. The emaxx is a 1/10th scale, which I guess is smaller but either way it kinda through me off a bit. I'm kinda new when it comes to buying brushless motors and esc's. Ive only ever ran one brushless and that was a 1/16th revo. The rest of my RC days were the finicky nitro including the tmaxx 2.5 and 3.3.
i have the hobbywing 150amp ezrun pro and a tacon 4074 2150kv motor on 5s good setup for the price i paid 60.00 for the motor and 80.00 for the esc.
The mmm2 just came out not to long ago but I'm sure it will be on the emaxx and erevo sometime in the near future
6S OR NOTHING............................ maybe 5s
Trials912- the emaxx is a 1/10 scale according to traxxas but if you measure it to other trucks its the size of a 1/8 scale. fires or just plain burning out if what i have been hearing about the esc the motor is fine just like its always been. the castle stuff just has a better warranty overall compared to the combo i linked you to. If you can get the MMM2 then go for it worth it.

The boss over at Castle in another forum says they will be doing warranty replacements with the current MMMs until they run out, then they will only be replacing with MM2 WP..... so I would imagine later this year Traxxas will supply it with the new WP version, unless they have a ton of regular MMM's stocked up.
