I am thinking of getting the 1512 1.5Y smooth
Neu 5S 5000mah lipo
MMM V3 when ever that comes out. So far, it seems that the MMM will be my main holdup before i get to the track...
IMO I would not get a MMM v1,v2,or a v3 when it comes out alot of people are having good luck with the MMM but ALOT are having problems with them
buy a mgm esc it is a little bit more but its worth it, the mgm is harder to setup and adjust but after you get used to it its not a problem.
on the neu i would get the finned version, the fins will help draw the heat out and keep it cooler and you dont need a rx pack you can run it off the lipo thru the esc

They are different. Same bearings, internal gears, and diff case(part that screws onto the gear). Dont quote on me on the internal gears being the same though

Quick questions on the 6's diff. Are you guys using the standard diff screws or are you guys buying longer diff screws? Please confirm? Also, what are you guys doing special to ensure the diffs won't leak. I may start building now.

Thx!!!

Im using the stock screws and so is Scott Hughes. I heard aftermarket seals aren't fitting the diffs and most including myself, and again Mr. Hughes like the stock ones. Although most people are saying they like 5-5-2 in terms of diff fluid

I ran mine with 5-7-2 this weekend & thought the center was too thick. I plan to switch the center to 5 before the weekend. My diffs are built stock & do not leak. I did use some "green slime" on the outdrive o-rings (as always).

The big gears inside the diff are slightly different as are the pins that go through the outdrives. Those pins are bigger now.
