It was good with the Mamba Max but was a rats nest of wires and a very sloppy, rushed, and temporary install. My Mamba Monster made it back from repair on the 2nd to last day of conversion. I added a Traxxas Slash reciever box as a place to hide wires!
I dremeled a channel in the bottom of the battery tray to run the servo to the rx box and ran the esc around the base of the rear brace.
painted up a quick body to beat up: Jconcepts Illuzion for mbx5r
Run it, Break it, Fix it, Love it :]=~
Wow! that looks very nice! I like how everything is so close to the center, a thought I had would be to try and run Mbx6 mud guards and and a MBX6 body. It looks like you would have the room for it. I also like the rx box, nice touch.
