im hoping to get away with playing with gearing it and taking a bit of speed-out of it without creating too much extra heat. I chose the Traxxas combo based on price. if it turns into a killer in this car i have another car i can put it in and then explore options from there.

Default hello

i have a tc4 my self i hooked it up with a 7700kv mamba max pro esc combo and its running fine. however i only do speed runs with it. i've tried 3s 4s and 6s lipo with it as your not suppose to use over 2s lipo but i've had no problem with it. only problem is that i cant control it if i hit the throttle or the speed is to high.

I would suggest the light steel outdrives for the diffs. The drivetrain is pretty strong on the tc4.

HD CVD's are in the tool box, just waiting for the Steel out-drives to arrive and i'll install everything at once. New MazdaSpeed6 Shell is ready to go, buddy did a hell of a job and i went and butchered the front wheel wells
oh well, its sure to get beat and banged up anyways. i learned what not to do... Picked up a set of Rubbers today too, the foams i had here rub on the base of the shocks up front when steering.

When i went to install the Traxxas kit an ear on the stock motor mount was broken, hope to have that fixed tomorrow gotta call one of the LHS here and see (they show stock on the website but i have never trusted their website) i'll go FT if needed.


** this is the only pic i managed to get to even hint that this paint is actually a very nice purple, every other pic i took its blue.


** is there going to be any interference issues with the rx on top of the servo? its about all i can do with this ESC's size. Don't feel like cutting a slot in the side of the tub for it to fit.


I also had to take a little bit out the the tray under the motor for the end cap to fit as well.

Damn tight fit in there for it all to say the least.

Quick question. Does the FT motor clamp bolt to the stock mount? Or do i have to replace both at the same time. Pro-con of using 2 different materials?

bought a full FT mount. not terribly happy about spending another $50 on the car to replace an $8 part that nobody stock but such is the hobby.

New QQ

Right now i am running the stock factory gearing (which eludes me right now as i seem to have forgotten the car at work today... but i have my coffee cup so im gonna be ok) Should i look at playing with the gearing right off the bat to make up for the Velineon system? Or will a temp gun do the trick?

he will defiantly be needing that soon the plastic will melt from heat caused from the friction . alloy cvd's also in the back at least the plastic will brake regularly. after those upgrades it bullet proof

i had mine for about 5 years originally running a mamba max and 5700 . the 5700 when out and the mamba max esc is in my slash. now i am running the sv2 and a ezrun 6000kv. i always ran it on 11.1v and the two setup run the same temps 135 on the esc and 125 to 140 on the motor depending on how i run it. speed is the same with both setups 60 to 63 mph. and i must say the old mamba max and the sv2 feels the same i cant tell the difference. i still beet the traxxas brusless setup every time in a drag race

yeah i have the CVD's already and im just waiting for the out drive cups to arrive. than i'll get everything installed. i think for now just to avoid the issues i might even run it in training mode. give me some time to figure out gearing etc..

Speaking of gearing is there a quick way to swap out the spur gear?

not really on the gearing swap. but you can run it if the out drives mess up or the plastic cv brake you have the replacements coming in

did you get this outdrive

no it is the only one they make that i know of. but if you get a good look you will see there longer then the plastic ones and intended to be installed on a ntc3 that is 200mm wide but sold as a replacement part for the tc4 190mm as well . you can install them just fine but being a little longer when you push up on the suspension you will notice they will rub the cv'd and restrict the motion of the arms. what i did was shorten then with a dremel tool and a cutting wheel on it and i dug out the slots a little

there long get a dremel tool ready it you dont want it to rub on fast hard turns

Are you running the steel yokes front and back to just in the back? I'm running the mm/5700 combo in both my car and my wife's and was looking at making them a little more bullet proof.

what was your gearing btw?

i have the steel diff and alloy cvd's in the back only. i have been running this setup with the brushless you have for years and the front has never given me any trouble at all. as a matter of fact i still using the diff's and ring gear's that came with it new. when i was running the 5700 MM it was 18\75 on a 4000mh 11.1 lipo the temps were 125-135 both motor and esc and did 53mph. now with the sv2 and ezrun 6000k it is 21\75 at 62mph and the same temps are 135-140. i find the ezrun 6000k motor runs a littler cooler for reason i can not understand

for every tooth you add to the pinion you will get 3 more mph
