Yes the vxl will run a mamba motor. That's the nice things about the vxls, they can run sensored(novak,lrp,etc), sensorless (vxl , mamba, etc) or brushed motors. I just wish they were smaller so I could run them in my 2wd buggies.

the mamba esc i have heard overheats more than the vxl. I don't now about the motors though. Im guessing the mamba get a little hotter considering that it is 7700kv compared to the vxl 3500kv.

i have heard many reports of the VXL Ecs going into LVC prematurely. I have one on my rustler i have not had any issues with it. I have ran my CC5700 & my CC4600 motors. They both worked fine with it.
