What battery are you going to be running? Are you going to be racing or bashing?

This setup might be fun to bash with, but will be way too uncontrollable for racing.

You can not run 2S & 3S at the same time

Your drivetrain will probably blow apart on 4S, dont even consider 6S

If you want to go fast, run 3S with the stock motor.

Use Mamba Max Pro with Novak 4.5 ballistic motor, the motor will handle i believe up to 3s, but its plenty fast w/2s, the speed control will handle up to 6s battery.

I run this same setup but I run the Novak HV 5.5 and I tell ya what, whether your bashing or racing, its a blast. I use mine just for racing and I am one of the top contenders with my truck. The mamba monster for racing is just way to much and is actually quite abit heavy that the Novak motors are.

If you want bullet proof go MMM w/2650, run it on 2s or 3s.

Dont need that much torque 2650 will tear the drivetrain up, you'll only get 19610 rpm on 7.4v or 37000 with the novak, the novak is a 5000kv motor. I have a 4.5 Novak in my scrt10 4x4 and love it. I have RC8 with a 2200 mm w 4 cell and i still have to tone it down to drive comfortably. Thats your call but i think you'll be much happier with the novak motor in your slash 4x4.

If you shoot it the bullet won't penetrate the flux capacitor.

Don;t put a 1/8 system in a slash. Horrible idea. The velineon system is plenty fast on 3s and faster than a 550 ballistic 4.5 will be on 2s. If you really want more speed, I would do a ballistic 550 5.5 on 3s although I would still stick with the velineon system if speed is all you are looking for.

will this novak still have as much torque and power and acceleration as the mamba monster?
