I have ran it in brushed mode and it performs very well. Just as well as any other brand esc.

If you have any other questions just ask.

It performs.
When someone is intent on excelling in an otherwise laudable manner, does he not desire to inflict pain on others by means of his exalted status and enjoy the envy he arouses? Is there not an anticipated delight in an artist's ability to defeat his artistic rivals, which heightens his euphoria in creation?

My mamba max is on order, maybe next week. I plan to run stock brushed motors. I hope what you say is true. I look forward to 'tweaking' it on my laptop trackside.

I've got a Mamba 25 setup with an RC18T using the stock 280 Brushed motor. Runs fine after some initial tweaking of the settings and having to reverse the red/black wiring to the motor to spin it in the right direction. Left the white wire unconnected out from the ESC.

In rcuniverse.com - some users tried it but had trouble and one or more guys had to send their ESC back to CC.

yeah, but hes talking about the 1/10th system, the mamba max, that should work fine with brushed
Press Alt+F4 for a good time.

I finished 3rd at the Region 2 Asphalt touring race with my Mamba Max running in brushed mode. I have ran stock and 19t without having any problems. Those type motors don't even get close to pushing the capabilities of a Mamba Max. I ran the high powered brushed setup on mine for months before I ever ran a brushless motor before.

Plus with the new deadband setting you can make the brushed setup even better and smoother than ever before. I ran mine before this newest update and it was still excellent but a little less deadband would of made it even better (now you can do that.)
