Default Mugen E-MBX5R conversion - 56k warning.

I finished up my brushless conversion of my buggy tonight. I bought the roller from a great guy on this site.

Stripped it down:


Installed an RC-Monster motor mount with neu 1515 1y/s


RC-Monster battery tray:


Using the brake servo mount as an esc mount I threw a mamba max with ubec and fan from my spare parts box into it to get a feel for it:

It was good with the Mamba Max but was a rats nest of wires and a very sloppy, rushed, and temporary install. My Mamba Monster made it back from repair on the 2nd to last day of conversion. I added a Traxxas Slash reciever box as a place to hide wires!

I dremeled a channel in the bottom of the battery tray to run the servo to the rx box and ran the esc around the base of the rear brace.

Wow! that looks very nice! I like how everything is so close to the center, a thought I had would be to try and run Mbx6 mud guards and and a MBX6 body. It looks like you would have the room for it. I also like the rx box, nice touch.

Thanks! I'll try an mbx6 today when I destroy this one. Carbon fiber mud guards have been ordered and not arrived yet.

nice. I had an mbx5 of sorts with an RCPD conversion on it and it was quite fun.

you may want to look into how guys are doing there mamba monster wires so they come out the side instead of top to get a lower profile look. Seems to put less stress on the wires too.
