I use a pair of Kontronik twist 3300kv motors paired with CC sidewinders & 3S maxamps 4000mah lipos for some fun. Chassis is a Gmade Dragoon. Scary fast with 14T pinion.

I'm running 2x Mamba Max 5700kV motors in mine...

I just recently picked up two 2s 4800mAh LiPo packs for it...

Makes a world of difference compared to my old IB3600 6 cell packs

With 15t pinions it still has a crapload of acceleration, and it's got some pretty dang nice top speed...

Gotta wait until summer before I can test that out... It breaks loose on the ice before it can get more than 65 - 75% there

I'm working on beefing up the suspension and axles to make it competitive in the monster truck races this summer....

Even with 10 - 20% punch control, I can ramp the throttle all the way up, then slam the brakes and bunny-hop

That's with the stock tires, too...
Though, mine are in need of replacement... They're 10 years old.

So now I'm running with some Maxx sized IMEX Baja's...

They seem so tiny compared to the Clod tires!
