Yeah, I am about to get some bullet connectors so I can hook my velineon motor to it. . The banana plugs on it are 4mm, right?

thanks for the reply! I might need that info if I change my VXL w/Mamba ESC. Change MM to 4mm for sure?
Thanks!

I put the velineon motor in. Runs much better. The esc did not get hot, but the motor did...should I lower the pinion to 14?

Yeah, I believe I should lower the pinion though, as the motor is still getting hot. Could this be because I was using a nimh, as opposed to lipo? Should I get a 14 or 16 pinion? Stock is 18 I believe.

I'd make small changes so you don't suddenly wind up undergeared after a big change. 16t would be the one I'd try and if its not enough, then the 14t.

NiMh vs lipo - no, its not the cause of the temp issue. If them NiMh wasn't up to the task, the batt would have gotten hot to really hot.

im runnen a mamba max and vxl motor on my slash , gearing is 21/86 and perfect , no heat issues at all with 6cell , 7cell and 2s lipo ... for the 6900kv motor i wouldnt go above a 16t pinion with the stock spur and watch your temp's and gear from there. you really dont want any motor going above 180 deg's i believe or it will start to de-magnitize. As for the esc(mamba) i believe it will automaticly shut down if it gets to hot but dont qoute me on that as i have never had it happen. Id say for a slash stick with the vxl motor or sell your 6900kv motor and get the castle 4600kv. They still will both be very fast with the right gearing and batteries. expect anywhere from 35 mph - 60+mph with the right batteries and gearing. GoodLuck
