His trusty MMP is the longest one ive seen running.
I have yet to see a RX8 fail on its own. Usually operator error.

those were the 4 hole esc's and were replaced by the 3 hole esc. if people only knew they could send the 4 hole in and get the 3 hole replacement. Knowledge is power.....mmp hasnt changed the issue remains.

anyone who owns this truck after 3 runs my steering nut for the servo saver backed off and i had no steering. to solve the problem i removed it and tightend it and red threadlocked it in place. easy fix and is still working fine.

I contacted AKA and they stated none of their currently available pre-mounted AKA will work on this rig.

I also contacted DE Racing and they will have wheels to fit this rig in about a week or so.

The Slash 4X4 wheels will make your ride too wide to be legal

You can run anything on it. anything. sensored or sensorless. 2s 3s it all works. no need for caps or bec's. And ive never even heard the fan kick on yet. Longer runtimes than the mmp and novak.
Ok I'll order a rx8. I have just seen too many go up in flames in 1/8 buggies. But I have had this mmp for over a year and I'm not easy on them

Tekin motors are great except when the enbell falls off. Hahahaha then they develop some serious drag.

Thanks. That's what it was looking like to me too. Too bad the sct mfg's can't get on the same page and 1 or 2 offsets instead of every truck has it's own wheels. Thanks again.

Wait till you get the Viper ESC!!!

And our string of bad luck with the MMP's did leave a horrible taste. With the good there is the bad, I have seen all the major ESC's have issues nothing is smoke free. Feels like sometimes you just roll the dice, duck and cover or pick blind folded and hope something works.
