Response from the Mamba Max ESC (with 4600Kv motor) is very bad. I don't run throttle punch, no exponential curve, etc. All stock. Still the throttle response sucks. Like it has turbo lag; at first nothing happens and then it blasts off uncontrollably...

Now changing to a new Sidewinder SCT 3800kv combo I also run (and love) in my SC10. If that doesn't work will switch to RX8 + pro4

Love this little truck! A lot of fun to drive! Just the ESC...
use the MM with the 3800. I found the MMP to be TONS smoother than the SW with the 3800. Temps are great but i think i may go down to a 14T so i have more snap for the track we run at.. I may just go 3s since i am speed hungry...
