Went up to RCP this afternoon. I have been there once before, just wanted to see if they had anything for my revo. Was maybe looking for a new body, but they dont have anything for me there, oh well.

Bout to pull the trigger on this combo in the next couple of days. lemme know shoot me an email.

If I had to do it over again, I would not get this combo. I had nothing but cogging issues with it. I know some people have had success with it. But there are others such as I that has issues with it. In fact, as soon as my trucks arrive. I have to send in 2 MMP's back to Castle for warranty repair. Don't know what happened, they just stopped working on me.

If you have to run the Novak 550 motor then get a different ESC such as the RX8 or the Novak SC pro.

Went to RCP today to look for some nitro. Only had 20% in stock. They said it will take atleast 3 weeks before they get some in. Is there another place on the island that carries RC products. Looking for 30% nitro. Any online retailers that ship nitro to Okinawa.

I have three MMP running sensored, no cogging, as a matter of fact, my mamba max didn't cog and neither do the two mamba monsters...that being said those are running castle motors too...the sensored are running cheap hobby king 13.5T's..

X hobby may have some 30%, if they are open, tho most guys don't like the Klotz, not sure what the difference is between that one and Cosmo, but Cosmo is the preferred, but the Klotz is pink so you can see it in the tank...cosmo is clear.

I do have a open gallon that I can share...

When using the MMP with 540 motors sensored or unsensored. I dont have any issues. Only when running 550 motors such as the Novak HV or Ballistic SC motor.
