get you two batteries, twice as fun, also for parking lot bashing a cooling fan setup on your motor would be a wise investment

also a good steering servo with 90 oz of torque minimum would be on my list if I was you, the servo that comes with the radio is garbage, I would try to get the futaba 9551

yep a fan on the motor would be must have as you are going to run withhigh power motor for a long time (smc 5000)
I dont think you really need a super servo as you are going to be bashing , a simple 0.11 sec @ 60 deg with 9 kg torque is enough , dont need to spend alot of money on a top servo

You don't need a fan on a Mamba Max, You just need to gear them right. Go by temperature 180* motor and 170* on speedo and there fine for a long long time.
Don't get a fan get a temp gun. Holding your finger on it is not the way to get the right gearing.

So here is what I have so far. Llt me know what you think for my very first ever car build. In general how did I do for a decent lot basher??


Assocoiated Tc4 factory team
Mamba Max 5700 Kv brushless system
SMC 5000 Lipo Pack
Futaba Fasst 3PM radio system

I got all of the above new in box for $ 520.. so I am doing very well on my 750 budget.....

is there something else besides the basics(tires charger all that stuff)
yes... buy alot of diff rebuild kits for that tc4. you'll go through them like water.i had the same set up except i had an orion 4800 lipo 20c.that's less power than what you have.those tc4 gaers can't hold up all that power. you might have to get IRS/irrgang metal gears and all titanium parts BIG $$$$.tc4 is good for stock to 19t club racing.you might want to look for a different car thats belt driven and can hold that power.remember the faster you go... more things break.

don't worry the car will be fine, I would have an expierienced builder, like the hobby shop you bought it from check your diffs before you run the car. They shouldn't slip at all.

Having a good charger is just as important as the battery if you want to max it's life cycle. Is it me or is that a lot for just to bash?
