The sidewinder can only handle 11.1v lipo at most and only in motors with 4600kv and under so the VXL at 3500kv will take a 3S lipo. at 5700kv and above the amp draw is too high for the sidewinder on a 11.1v so that's why it's different. On the Mamba Max you can run 3S on any motor that will take it.
