Is the Mamba or the Velineon better? If i were going to get it, i would be putting it in a slash. With lipo. Also which would be the best kv rating of mamba motors. OR should i jsut go with the Mamba ESC and Velineon motor? i heard that was a good combo. LMK
IMO the Mamba is better. I have heard of some people having problems with the Velineon. Someone at my track had the Mamba Max 7700 in his slash and it was out of control. Which KV are you planning on going with?
I don't have much experience with the Velineons, but I can attest to Mamba Maxs. Castle Creations make some really good, no-bullshit products! I personally use the 5700Kv + MM combo, but I wish I bought the 4600Kv motor instead... Having too much power works against you...
i run the velineon with sidewinder combo. the only reason i went that route was cause i wanted a 35ookv rating that castle doesnt offer. i didnt want the speed due to the track i run is small and technical, but the torque is nice. barly have to pin the throttle to get over major jumps.
I run on my practice losi xxxcr buggy a Excelerion 6400 system geared @ 23/78 i'll take any help with the gearing though! Actually was thinking about running mod with this!had it out front of the house today and it was pulling wheelies ten feet after it started the run, holy chit almost back flipped a few times!
My pro-stock buggy has an LRP Sphere 07 comp 13.5.My wheeler has a GTB w/6.5 motor!
Do you want a light switch speed control that does lot's of wheelies and is good for running up and down the street or do you want a competition ready speed control with tunability for track conditions.
If you want to race and be in control go with the Tekin.
If you want wheelies and wheelspin go with the others mentioned.
Retired from sponsored racing, Now just having fun.
