Nice !! I figured it would. Good pricing and small size should make it a popular choice. Thanks Rob and Big THANKS to Novak.

Yeah I'm going to go check that out. I never gave it a look since it wasnt on the list. I had no need for it.

Sounds like you need smaller blocks under the chassis.....try a couple spur gears....make sure they are the same thickness. Let the chassis rest on them this will lower the chassis and make your gauge useful.

I want to thank all of you who tested our Mongoose with the 25.5 T motors. And thanks to Rob for giving the go-ahead. The Mongoose is a sturdy little controller and I will be adding both the new and RMF versions to our USVTA store section. We will also combo it with the SS Pro 25.5 motor for an affordable set-up.

What happens if I want to trade a lone ss13.5 for a 25.5 Ballistic with a Mongoose? Can that happen in this section?

Our Trade-In program allows you to exchange your old SS Pro for a Ballistic 25.5 motor, but both programs are one for one. Your best price for a Mongoose would be RMF.

Somebody gets me! I didn't want to keep beating a dead horse cuz I figured I would look like an ass. I understand droop, and know how to check it. I was just looking for a meaningful way to use the gauges. Thanks!

Hey, if anybody's interested, my local Hobbytown has a couple of Mongoose esc's for sale at half price. $50 bucks+tax for a brand new one. If you're interested, get in touch and we'll work something out.

Well I got to run my Goose and 25.5 SS RMF tonight and it was great...no issues at all....plenty of power,brakes and punch....love it...

TC3 10mm ride height, 2mm droop, and 4.0 fdr, motor time on factory setting, esc on pro 2 with throttle punch at max....temps where in the 80 deg on esc and 100-120 on motor on 10-12 min track time...running a Team Checkpoint 5000 lipo.....

turn 15 flat laps...constant 15.3-15.5's...

esc is perfect for those that need a small...and I mean small esc...

thanks again Novak and the USVTA

Depends on the size of track. I added a fan and went to 3.26 FDR last night. I am running cooler(140F) car is faster and I can still hang with the 21.5 guys on the infield.

Now to stop the traction roll in the sweeper.
