And I haven't had my system thermal as of yet so the thermalling issue doesn't worry me. Where in Aus do you usually race??
I havn't raced off road yet , will be racing once i get my Mambas at Knox down here in Melbourne, only on club days though as the Mamba is not legal fsanctioned racing.The reason it's not legal is because the Mamba is running a 540 shaft compared to the smaller shafts on the Novak/ Lrp's.
Thus another reason that it has alot more torque
and being able to overgear the motor.
My novaks were in my bashing cars , was gearing higher for speed runs in a B3 and a Stampede using 8000mah lipo with low voltage cut off and was having heat issues ,i was runnig up to 45mins on the lipo
and got fed up and sold them.
The Novaks' and LRP's are designed for racing so they were never designed to run big lipo packs with mega runtime 40 - 60 mins straight.
Now the Mamba is more of a do it all system thus the reason iv'e gone for it over the LRP which i was going to get after selling my Novak's.
I'll under gear it for 2wd off road racing using 2s lipo or 6 cells, then over gear it and run 3s lipos or up to 12 cells for speed runs and bashing and around 45 mins runtime without thermaling on a 8000 mah lipo.
As they say different strokes for different folks
Now don't forget that all this is going by the Mamba's specs and reports from people testing the system so once i receive mine i'll report on my findings, which going by my past experience with CC should be awesome.
