If you're talking about the Mamba Max Pro it's the sensored version and the fan is in a removable case which is why the fan plug is external, so you can remove it as its not needed in 2wd. If its the older Mamba Max non sensored unit then it's a bit more work to get the fan out.

I am running 3, 3, 2. I'm thinking of bumping up to 3 or 4 on the front. I get a little too much with tapers and not enough with scrubs with 2mm. Is it a handful with 1.5mm anti-squat (kick-up)?

yes until you put the 6mm in, then it calms it down.

I saw some of 22's running that much up front. My track is indoor clay as well. This is the first year, so we are still guessing on a lot of things. Right now the track temps are ranging from 25-35 deg F, so even though it should be high bite it gets a little slick. I think I've got the front dampening pretty close, but still uncertain on the rear. It's a big 1/8th scale type layout. Last week I tried 4x1.2 with 27.5, 3 upper & 2 lower, dk green springs. Next time, I'm dropping to 22.5 and moving the lower to 3.

sounds like our track is similar other than the temp. I am 4x1.2 with 25, 3 upper and lower with dk blue springs. works good, but track is smooth with no really big jumps.

Saw these today:

http://tresreyusa.blogspot.com/2012/...l#comment-form

Can't tell if these are to add toe, or remove it, or change to the number on the block. They mention having +2 blocks in, but does that add 2 degrees, remove it, or change to 2 degrees assuming 0 inserts?

+ would mean adding toe.

well going by the pics above which you have found, they would be 3.5 and 4.0 degrees toe in, wouldn't it, as the standard ones have 3 degrees toe.

and yes the +2degree is extreme

Wouldn't this defeat the purpose of the inserts? To change one of these would take a while since you have to remove the motor plate.

My guess would be + refers to positive (naturally) and the number is total toe, not added toe. These would be for use with the toe inserts in the hub carrier. Removing toe at the arm mounts and adding it back in the hubs would increase the wheelbase if you don't change the arm spacing. The Cougars a ways back used this arrangement somethimes.

Default Momba max pro

The mmp fits snug in my 210. It is all i run. My sens wire comes out the back. And i took my dremel with a 1/4" drum and shaved a little off the left front corner of the pod. Picks will be available if needed. Works perfect and has not come out yet.

What size is the inner bearing on the lay shaft. I've gone through two from boca and 1 of the original. Make any suggestions?

sounds as if you need to shave a little off the top shaft spacer.Going through that many bearings there has to be a reason, and i know with mine when I went to do the tranny Mine needed a little shave to get everything to spin nice and free..I ended up taking about .005" off the length of the top shaft spacer to get her freed up..
