Default Setup Issue with Mamba Monster

I am converting using the Mamba Monster 2200kv combo. I managed to calibrate and setup my ESC. The throttle seems to be weaker than the reverse. But the cars moves in the correct direction. When I hit throttle it moves forward and vice versa, but reverse is blistering fast.

I tried reversing the throttle channel on my Airtronics MX3 2.4 radio, but that makes the motor spin very fast and the ESC fans starts off.

My steering was reversed, so corrected it by reversing the channel.

Please help.

Do you see the green light on the ESC or the red one if you throttle?
If you see the green light while throttling, recalibrate.

If you see the red light, switch 2 random wires on the ESC, reverse throttle on your transmintter and recalibrate.

You have the MMM running in reverse - switch any two wires and then reverse the throttle channel. That should put everything right.
