Sort of, but it depends on what servo & ESC you plan to use. I've made one fit with a proper micro servo(like the size of a Hitec HS-81, for example) & a Novak Spy for the ESC, but anything bigger & I'm not sure. In the end, you might just have to try placing it on top of the servo(which is what I'm doing now with the Motek Panther chassis I'm using, & I have to put the Spy on the upper deck, so the motor plate has room to accomodate any motor & be adjusted properly)....

Yes, there will be space. Futaba 3101 is one of the best choices for servo. Put the rx on edge, between the servo & motor. Esc next to motor. Be carefull with balance. If you use LiPo batteries, you may have to put either the rx or esc on the battery side. Try to get everything on the lower chassis if possible.

I have the Tekin system and think it's a better setup than the Mamba, which I also have. The Tekin has onboard programming (no need for a laptop and cable) and is sealed in a nice plastic case, where the Mamba is shrink-wrapped and the ends are open to the elements. They are both great but if I could only have one..I'd get the Tekin.

also, i have noticed that the mamba controller sometimes "cogs" at low speeds when you hit the gas, causing a studder and then a pipe plant, where the tekin is smoother on the response

I'd like to convert my slip on wheels to bolt on like the pro kit. Is it just a matter of buying these, or do I need more:

You just need those, and the wheel nuts (they arent included with the axles for whatever reason
