I run it(MMP) without a fan on a Ballistic 10.5 and the Futaba 603 Rx.
It does not fit well but it will go. Fans are a suck way of making something work anyway!

Attached is a pic of mine with a MMP. I did not run a fan on it before either, MMP doesn't need one. I run a Ballistic 6.5 w/18T pinion has tons of power and comes off at 140-145 on both ESC and Motor after a 15min run.

So without the fan on the mmp it may fit.....also is a hi tech 645 servo going to be good enough

how big is the track you run on? Im trying to select a motor but not sure what to go by. the tracks here arent finished yet but are 1/8 tracks that are 1/10 friendly if that makes any sense lol


By the way you guys have been awesome and remember I WAS a traxxas guy

Torque wise yes the 645 will be fine...but you are going to want something better than an entry level servo. Look St the savox line. $65 will get you pro spec levels

Atleast you have found your way. I think everyone in the hobby must have had a traxxas car once upon a time and that is what initially makes people buy something more "professional" to race with once they get into it more.

I started with a Tmaxx3.3, was plagued with nightmares and then was determined to find the right cars to run, all the friends I started with backed out of the hobby after that initial traxxas experience but Im a little bit more stubborn and determined to make things work than most people. Its been a long process and a lot of learning along the way and LOTS of mistakes and went through LOTS of kits.

This is the only car that I have actually kept and feel a sort of attachment to, and thats because it just runs right and is durable. I have no regrets and no complaints because everything on this car can be addressed easily and the maintenance is cake as compared to some other cars. And to think I almost sold this car for a real stupid reason So glad I didnt, the minute I realized what I was doing I bought more stuff for it lol.

Now if only that 2wd would come out already so I dont have to buy a Losi 22

I am guessing that the track is about 45'x85', we are running 22s lap times. I know I could easily go up on the pinion, but motor temps good and I have plenty of power.

After hearing all the people that have temp issues, I chose to over motor mine and under gear it so I keep things cool and still have the power I want. So far it seems to be pretty good.

Default Diff Fluid Weight at MHOR

Finally ready to start my build. What viscosity is popular for the diffs at MHOR in Denver? How about shock fluid weights?

You need to do a search for the grapejuice setup.
