It's pretty much a sure win hands down if you get your car handling the way you like it.

I'm always confident on my car since I got this ESC cause I know that I can compete.

According to Castle, the magnet strength has a lot to do with it. I'm still waiting on Castle to call me back with my findings, I'll keep all of you posted on this.

Default Set up help?

I just bought an mmp. I would like some set up suggestions. I am running on a dirt oval track with about a 50' straight away. I am running a 17.5 duo 2. Current gear ratio with my speed passion was 1.75. I don't know much about the mmp so any help would be appreciated.

Yes its really fast. But their customer service is not. The least they could do is answer and email about a speedo I pre ordered on December 9th. I understand that when I ordered it It was not supposed to ship until early January but now after looking at their website it says mid February. If I have to wait until mid Feb. to receive it I want a refund due to the fact that it will have no use to me by then. But now they're gone for another 2 days for new years and my return time of 3-4 business days has turned into 10+ so far. The only reason I have been able to get anything form castle was buying from someone on ebay. I understand that castle is very busy right now, however hearing about other people that have received emails saying that their speedos have shipped or people that have at least received an answer to their inquiry makes you mad that you have yet to receive anything besides the email saying we may not get back to you in 3-4 business days.

Is it that hard to get one email answered inquiring about my order status on the mamba max pro I pre-ordered? Thats all I want.

If you are talking about the 1S edition MMP you pre-ordered, I got mine from them yesterday. They are already shipping. You should get an email from them when they ship it. Being the holidays, they probably wont be shipping anything again till Monday.

You ordered one in the frist run, from what I hear over on Hobbytalk those are still shipping on time, the Mid Feb now listed is for the second run.

I ordered the MMP back in early Dec too. But now the estimated arrival is going to be sometime in Jan. I wish Castle will hurry up and ship them out. With the new software out for the Tekin(which people claim is faster than the MMP), more people will jump ship if they can't keep the shelves stocked.

Yeah, I'm torn on which ESC to run in 1/12th this Sunday. Got the 1S MMP, but the Tekin RS is already in the car and I should be able to get the new firmware by then. Using the MMP will require an almost complete rebuild of the car to fit it in.

So now with the Tekin software update, will the MMP be able to keep up?
