OK, thanks for all the help. I think ill run the mamba with a heatsink and some good flow through cooling.

depending on the surface... you might need more than just a heatsink to keep both the motor and the esc cool..


good luck

Well the Little black pins on the Mamba Micro Pro will be basically flying in wind out a little hole in the body as the wing should act as a roll bar and prevent those from getting squished in a roll-over. And as to hooking up a fan on the motor heatsink, do you just wire it off the main leads comming from the battery?

well if u would use a 400 can motor which is perfect for the vehicle and not a 180 size motor u wouldnt have to use a fan.... trustme I have tested a few motors and u are defeating ironmanpurpose bygearingthe 6800 sohigh..... wont be as fastas you think

compare ur 6800kvmotor geared at 12/49 and my 6800kv motor geared at 16/45.... which one do u think will be faster and cooler running
