Anyone out there using a castle MMP? Between the MMP and the spektrum reciever, having a tough time getting things to fit.

I am not arguing what is the best, because that is all personal preference, but to call a company like Tekin junk or POS is ridiculous.
i AGREE some ofn the fastest motors ive had were tekin. and are still running

Run a Viper VST 7.5 in my DEX410r and no complaints. Ran a 10.5 VST before and again perfect motor. Runs cool, plenty of power, good quality manufacturing.

As with everything in this hobby, YMMV, based on use and experience.

Ok I'm gonna go with the viper vtx10r and 6.5. As theres a few guys who have them at the track, they have a good reputation, they are a little cheaper than tekin, they're waterproof, and they have a year warranty.

So I'm thinking 20t pinion and stock spur to start off with? I run on a smallish medium carpet track that's pretty technical. I went with the 6.5 because there isnt much run up to the jump so I want to be able to blip the throttle and be able to clear them. I may have to tone the motor down with the program or on my spectrum but I want the power to be there.

Thanks,
Dan

+1 i run viper and have no complaints. nice power, especially torque. perfect indoors.

im not going to say there aren't better products, but i don't think you can really go wrong with any of the top sensored motors available.

some run hot, others cooler. it doesn't hinder performance. i've heard the LRPs are as smooth as they come.

Yeah you'll be fine with that. I run a 20T on my 7.5 and its PLENTY of power

10.5 sounds like it would've been the ticket. there are a few guys that went with that way of thinking (bigger is better, so the power will be there) not that its wrong but its just too ballistic, there is still way too much wheel spinning even with them turned down. the 10.5 has almost no spin and more than enough torque to take doubles with only 3ft run ups. while you'll have stay in the lower range of the power spectrum of that motor, the 10.5 will be in its sweet spot 90% of the track.

maybe something you try later down the line. you might suprise yourself when you look at the time sheet

yeah I liked the VST 10.5 in mine but needed just a little more to catch the faster guys (shame my driving isn't good enough to hang with them once I caught up to them with the 7.5). With our new slower local track layout I'm thinking of going back to a 10.5.

Alright well I'll try the 6.5 first and if it's to much after I turn it down I'll try a larger turn. It's almost impossible to spin out at our track so I won't be loosing the power to the ground with a higher powered motor. The way I drive is being light on the trigger and then blip the throttle before jumps so I think the power will help me.

Thank you guys a lot! Your like my own personal consultants, very fast responses thanks!

I'd go 35w in the front and 30w in the rear with the big bores.
