I got this from the castle web site.


4. My ESC may or may not arm, but it will not calibrate to my transmitter.
Most calibration issues can be solved by settings on the transmitter. Make sure you have both your throttle and brake endpoints (called EPA or ATV on your radio) on the throttle channel out to 100 to 120%. If you have a Futaba or Futaba made transmitter, set the throttle channel to the reversed position.

You have to make sure you hold the throttle longer than you would think is necessary. That is what I had to do on my Mamba max.

I ran a 5700 unit in my T4, was just the right amount of pop.

I didn't experience the cogging after I adjusted it some. Increased the max power draw ( i think that is what it was basically), different than I thought I would do and it went away. I have also heard of people removing the plugs and the stuttering going away, however, I am not sure if that voids the warranty?

Thing I didn't like:

1. Placement of dataport for pc hookup limited direction of mounting the ESC
2. 5V bec, want 6V for my servos.

Good ESC other than that for the money.

Tried that.

Nomadio set EPA to 125 and tried Normal and Reverse settings.

I have both a GTB (6.5) and the MM 4600, when I ran them back to back in my 4wd cars, the 6.5 had better overall speed. Gearing does play a part in it. I think the MM is easier to drive, "smoother". I dont have cogging issues.

Oh, I have run Novak stuff for many years (almost 20), but my GTB eats fans.

Talking 1/10th off road racing 2 wheel drive.
Over a year and still running the stock fan on my GTB. Dirt racing and carpet.
Keep the wires out of it and they last just fine.

Mamba is the bashers best friend.
And GTB is the racers best friend.

Also with the mamba you need a computer to program it. And In a dirt environment that sucks. More suitable for carpet racing. Thats where mines going to get used this winter. I haven't give'n up on it entirely yet.

Oh and wait till you crash and roll backwards you will have to wait for it to stop rolling before you can go forward.
It appears the MM is suitable for High out put applications like 1/8the electric.

Novak pick your plug and play.

MM redo the plugs. Get a computer down load 3.0 program it and then spend the rest of your life trying to figure out how to get the stutter out on the take off or even get the hesitation out on power coming out of a turn.
And don't crash and roll backwards on a jump in the heat of battle, you'll fall 5 seconds behind. In one little foble.

I haven't had the issue of not being able to configure it without a PC. There are alot of settings in it that you can adjust, pretty much everything I think without a PC, you just don't get to do it in very little increments like 1% for this, 1% for that, instead its like 10%.

Put it this way, my last 5700 I got the stutter gone using only the manual configuration options, no PC input.

One other thing about the mamba that can be tricky, they say that you need to hear X amount of beeps (or flashes is it?, from memory here) to know what setting your on. The last setting however only flashes / beeps once.

Picked up another 5700 based on my previous experiences for my B4.
