I'm pretty sure there's no way i'd ever hit over 100,000rpm, with the lowest gearing I have available it'd be doing over 100km/h!

Yeah I want a MMP too

sounds like a loose connection between your battery and esc, if the computer can power it up then there cant be any power getting to it from your battery. check your solder and try another battery

with the mamba max pro coming, i have some questions about it:

1. How does it perform with 13-17.5 motors in touringcars, with the so called "cheat mode" how does it compare to the other brands? (eg speed passion, lrp, tekin etc) will it give me a advantage in speed?

2. Does it handle a 3.5t motor with 2s lipo?

do you have any more pics of it where i can see how the wires is coming out?

Any motor will work on it. SP competition series, LRP X11 and Novak Velociti have been fine for me so I can't see why their latest motors would be any different.

I didn't get to run my new production version yet but my old version ran well. It had a few bugs but Castle has since made a few changes to the production version.

I will say the Cheat mode will put more timing advance than anything I seen so far. I can get up to 50 degrees extra. It has variable RPM ranges you can setup for when the taming is applied so will have to mess around with it to see what works best.

Didn't run a 3.5 but the speedo can run up to 6S lipo.

so instead of paying 200+ for a lrp, tekin etc i can go for the mm pro and be as fast as the other 17.5 drivers?

hi guys,

does the MM Pro use the same USB cable as the MM? coz i realized that the USB link is optional for MM Pro.

cheers!
