Thumbs up

Mamba max speedo, small RX pack to bypass the BEC in the speedo, a Medusa 60mm at 1700 Kv motor with a pinned endbell.
Cheap and will run with anything on the track. Very reliable and tested as well.

The Mamba is the best ESC for the money IMO.

Ran my losi converted to electric for the first time today.wow! Should have done that sooner. From info found on this forum I created my beast. I was very budget minded.

losi buggy, just sitting there 0
losi coversion 80.00 mounted diff mount on chassis not plastic riser
new mm 90.00 took off switch/hooked ubec and fan wiring from under side of esc
ubec 10.00
25mm/12v fan 2 16.00
2700 uf 25v cap 3.00
1900kv 36-74 hobbycity 32.00 15t gonna gear down
5000 zippy 4s H 90.00

smoking a novak jammin and a vspec d8 today at buddys back yard track
priceless

Was and am very excited about my project. Will upgrade in time. but thought I would share a pretty ripper setup. so far.
tell a friend

motor is now smoked? But it was a ripper faster than my b44 with 5.5 21/84. pinnion came loose and rubbed on mount. I saw 290 degrees. 32 bucks might just buy like 3. Gonna step up to a madusa. not sure whitch 1. But for sure 2000 or less kv

Side note. Brought buggy to local indoor dirt offroad track fri night. Every one thought it was bad to the bone. All have been running 1/10. For sure going to be seeing many 1/8 at track this winter. Had a few kids come to my pits and tell me that my buggy was the coolest thing ever.

Showing off is cool!
I would just run it for like 3/4 min then take break and let it charge/cool off and answer all the questions. had a blast
braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

p.s it was so fast it kinda scared some peeps. also note when driving with 1/10 crowd be extra careful of there cars and marshals. So not getting kicked out.
