Default Brushless and LiPo

I cant stand brushed nimh so I am chucking so money at my Emaxx ATM so I thought instead of spending 150 bucks I may as well spend 700 bucks

BL options

Also I will need a pinion recommendations on a heavy truck running 4s

And will two of these work with the combos- And what run times could I get?

Either system will power your E MAXX but the Mamba Monster is worth the extra cash IMO and comes with an 18t pinion. I am running it in my E REVO and I love it , sooooo much POWA ! And you have the option of running 6s if you want too .

The batteries you listed are good and will work with either system .

If you're bashing, get the Mamba Monster (my CC combo shipped Sat, will have it tomorrow!), you'll have more flexibility with that setup. The 18t pinion should get you started, may not want another, but could prob gear up a little from there.

Expect 15+ minutes, depending on how heavy your finger is, lol!

Default Lipos

Why bother with 4S when you can do the 6S. So much more power and runtime. I have run the 4S with my e-revo and this week my new OEM BL e-revo is due in and it will be running the 6S. If you can afford it, get the 6S to go with your BL system. CC MMM setup is the way to go.

Thats my two cents....

I tried a mates one on 6s when he goes bashing he has to keep a spare whole set of tires with cause they keep flying off.........We GPSd it got 65mph and gaining before reaching the end of a 300 foot field and if he hit a bump even 1/4 of an inch high it was cartwheel time, he even broke an RPM arm

so not looking for that kind off thing

does the RPM warranty even cover those speeds?

Actually no, read their fine print As for 4s Brushless, I'm running a (I would guess) milder setup with the Emaxx. Running 4s with a Novak 4400 with the new sinister'd innards, i think that's what it's called. Thing is RIDICULOUS fast, 40-45+ mph, hard to control on the straights lol.

I agree, 4s is enough!

Go with the CC system. I have a Neu 1515/1Y with Mamba Monster on 6s in an ERevo. It is truly insane.
I have a lot of faith in the Castle systems and will use them at twice the price of Novak.
I get my batteries from MaxAmps, but with our exchange rate I've had to curb that...
Just a tip if you dont have the right pinions check out Fine Design.

I would definetly get the CC BL system no questions asked, you can find them for like $260 if you look around. I would at least get 5000 mah lipo's with a discharge rate of at least 25c, trust me.

I don't even know if more power is needed from the Novak System, this alone is stupid! But if the CC is that good and ppl are swearing by it, I'd love to upgrade

hi, i have a hpi savage and was wondering if the CC mamba monster would be a good match for it, better than the novak??

also can you run 2 batteries at one time on the mamba monster as you can with the novak??

wher can you get 4 and 6 s lipos??

dont mean to change the subject slightly but some help would be greatly appreciated.

rhys.
