well thats actually changing... on tuesday I will have a mamba 8000, mamba speed controller, mamba conputer conector cable, 2 lipo charges, and a lipo that is freid(using the conectors off it)
Word of advice, don't use a 3 cell LiPo with that Mamba 8000, I've already gone through 2 ball differentials and a gear differential lasted a good whole 2 minutes. If you feel like doing it anyways, make sure that slipper clutch is not tightened; keep it lose and progressively tighten it until you get it to "grab" just right.

I'm running a Mini-T with a 8000 BL setup, and only recently installed the DD-Slipper. I haven't actually run it yet, but to be honest, I'm looking toward the day when the BL and Lipos come out and go into a Xray M18T.
Those things are supposed to rock, although I'll try to find myself a cheaper 2nd hand one if i can.

maxamps.com

Get a 2100 mah 7.4 volt pack. It will push the car at around 30 miles per hour with the 6800 system. For a charger I would get the duratrax ice w/ a decent power suply. You should get around 25 minutes of run time easily as well. As far as kits are concerned, the new trinity blade pro ARR looks like the best bargain. The parts quality is actualy good and the roller is $100 w/ a servo. That would put you at $100 for a great roller, $80 radio, $100 brushless, batteries and charger.

mamba 8000 is basically uncontrollable with even nimh. 6800 is your best bet, more torque too

It probably won't fit becuase the RC18T has a longer, thinner battery compartment than the Mini-T.
RC18Ts have 5-6 cell packs built side by side (although I've seen stick packs too), whilst the Mini-T runs 4 side-by-side with 1-2 along the top for the 5-6 cell packs.

7.4v 2 cell: http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodID=EFLB1010

11.1v 3 cell: http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodID=EFLB1015

I have the 3 cell and the battery height is slightly higher than a NiMH pack, so the fitment is nice and snug. Fits very well and doesn't move around.

I'll let you know Tuesday. I forgot I have a 2100mAH 3 cell LiPo sitting around and I can test fit it. It is considerably larger than the 1200MaH though, so it'll be a pretty tight fit.

I don't think you understand how fast you are saying you want your truck to go. The truck will literaly crumble if it hits a curb going 50 m.p.h. Go with the mamba 6800 version and a 7.4 volt lipo. If you go with the 8k mamba and a 11.2 volt lipo I would advise that you invest in perhaps the integy aluminum vonversion kit for the mini-t.
