I put in a speedgem 15t and it is pretty fast for 35$ as long as you maintain it.

Read the Traxxas forums mate, most people will concur that a Mamba Max 7700 in a Slash is just going to burn itself out, 380 size rotor in a 1/8th scale truck?

Personally I wouldn't listen to the nonsensical ramblings of Maxamps staff, I bought from them once and it was the worst experience I have had in 10 years of buying stuff online.

A decent 550 motor is essential, something like the greatplanes S600 or the Graupner Speed 600, a 540 motor will run hot and be underpowered. Of course if you run in a sub zero climate, you won't notice motor heat until it packs up on you. The climate I deal with, 100-110 degrees most of the year, even a Mamba 4600 on a 13/90 combo will top 175-180 degrees in 5 minutes, and that's on a 5 cell Nimh.

You had one bad deal with the company so everyone that works there must be idiots, right?

I wouldn't call the Slash an 1/8 scale truck.. it might be similar in size but it's about half the weight.

Making a mistake is one thing, fighting to avoid coming up with a solution without being pushed is another completely.

I have seen people run the titan with no probs on 7 cells. Make sure to check your gear mesh to ensure there is no binding. Also, make sure to properly break the brushes in on the titan. I would also try using a 1 to 2 tooth smaller pinion with 7 cells. As for the KD motor, those are a very high rpm motor and will have to be used with a smaller pinion than stock, especially if you are using 7 cells. If you want to stick with a brushed motor, I would either go with the stock titan, or for a checkpoint 19 turn money motor. Good luck.

The 7700 is running just fine geared at 18/86 it's peaking at 150 degrees with a 2S2P 8000 pushing it. Cooler if I run the 4200 2S. But what do I know. I guess from ones point of veiw I'm just rambling and don't know anything. Guys this thing is a blast on a BL system. Just to much fun. Oh and a 7700 can take heat up to 190. I've run this motor for almost two years on 2S packs and yes 3S packs and it still screams. Hasn't burned out yet. Must be because I know what I'm doing. Na' I just ramble.

Enjoy and have a Happy Halloween.

While I might agree of all the Castle motors the 7700 is the worst choice for a truck like the Slash the 4600 and 5700 are great fits in the Slash and will run at much lower temps on a much more battery power than you talk about.
