My drivetrain feels super smooth I just think it was the 5150kv 540 from viper. I think the truck is a bit too much for this setup I mean it has tons of power but when you give it all that power then you have heating issues im looking for tons of power and low temps!

The fan from FTW lowered my temps just over 40 degrees with my Revtech 4800. It mounts to the center diff braces and works phenomenally well. I would consider it a necessity in outdoor racing in the summer. I'm running 3 Rx8s and never had an issue with them. I don't run the fan on it and it doesn't get over 135. According to Tekin they don't thermal until well over 200, so you should be good to go no matter what if you do run the fan.

Might be because your running a 540 size motor usually the 550 size 4 POLE cans run cooler in the SCTE.

Try a clip on heat sink on the motor the Intergy ones with the fan which are crappy but the heat sink works great on my motor.

I just finished installation of my Mamba Monster 2. Holy crap! My truck is on drugs! I actually flipped it once! I even pulled a quick wheelie one time too. I wasn't expecting that one! This is all on a 10 pinion! On payday, I am picking up a 14 tooth and a new servo. I could only imagine what this thing will do with a 14 tooth.

should have asked on the thread, we would have gotten you turned in and saved you some $$$$.


BTW, anyone point me to a good base line set up for the SCTE, finally getting to play with one for myself after all these years.

I love driving this truck and I have had nothing break yet in all of 6 months of racing. I got upgrades on it to make it lighter and make it steer to my liking but it didn't need the up grades. I am gonna make my own setup sheet soon if anyone is interested I will put one out.

Niko, might you be testing some new motors??? I'm a Viper guy so I gotta know! Are you driving the 1.0, the 2.0 or some crazy in between hybrid (1.X)?

I was told that I can run stock Eclipse tires on an indoor clay track with the SCTE (not to race, just play around on the track to learn how to drive). Does this sound right or will I actually need softer tires to drive on clay? I did this with a 2WD buggy and it didnt work out as well but 4x4 is a bit different.

I definitely want newer tires for a clay track and the store owner has them in stock. After I get my servo, I want to try some track time this weekend but I am trying to not blow all my money on a new servo and 4 tires/wheels.

I have heard of guys grinding the pins down on the stock tires and using them on clay. But if you are just playing around they will work might not be very consistent though. If u want to race and be competitive then get some good tires for clay IMO.

I plan on that later on once I learn the ropes of racing on the clay track. For now, I would like to drive around the track for practice on the eclipse tires until I buy tires/wheels suited for clay use. My local clay track does open driving all day and they race for 3 hours at night 3-4 times a week. I might stop by there during one of their racing events and watch how it is done and learn a few things.

Right now, I am learning how to dial in my suspension for clay track driving and what shock settings i should use (along with the springs) and what oil i should run in the shocks. The only oils I have are lighter oils from my 2WD buggy I used.

Sounds like your running at TRCR, a good starting point for the shock oil is 27.5 or 30 front and back. Set your ride height to 25-26mm. the stock springs and mounting postions will be fine for now until you can get around the track good. I have a set of almost new clay compound wishbones mounted on SCTE wheels I can ship you for 35 dollars if you want. PM me if you are interested in the tires.
