CRASH do you think if I hat one of those Palm Pilot things I could download my Castle Link into one of those and use that at the track to setup the speedo as needed? That would really be trick and take up no space.

Oh well just a thought. I guess I will just bring the laptop with me incase I need it. I don't think in brushed mode I will be changing my setups too much but when and if I get to run some brushless stuff I'm sure I will be changing all kinds of things.

I was looking at getting a GTB 5.5 setup for my ZX5 which I run on a large indoor track. A friend suggested I take a look at the Mamba Max setups.

I searched through the thread, but could not find an specifications regarding each Mamba Motor and what brushed turn it is equivalent to. I tyipcally run a 9 or 10 turn brushed setup.

Thanks,
Jimmy

Jimmy,

If you between a 9 and 10 turn then you will want to go with either our 5700 or 6900 series.

I am currently running a 6900 in my XXX4-G+ and it has plenty of power.

I would say our 5700 is equal to the Novak 5.5 and that are 6900 is equal to their 4.5.

Hope this helps.

Hi CRASH, I have tried that but it still seems to be having the problem. its getting really frustrating as sometimes it actually goes slightly in reverse

I have tried resetting the speedo and transmitter and re setting it up again but it still does the same - any ideas?

I've got a Mamba in an RC18 and when the battery bumps into the voltage cutoff (I think), the Mamba ESC quits responding. It just continues to run at about 50% power with no response to input. The BEC is still working providing power to the servo. I have to unplug the ESC to get it to work again. I can duplicate the issue over and over.

6 Cell NiMH and voltage cutoff at 4.2 V

When the speedo hits the cutoff voltage it cuts back power to the system to protect the battery. This is mainly for li-po.

I would set it for nut off for 6 cell nimh, should be fine and good to go.

Let me do some research and get back to you. Hopefully in a couple days, things are crazy around here.

Pics of my touring car setup with Mamba Max setup for brushed high power setup. I could of jumped the three wires going to the negative but I didn't do that just because if I go brushless I have all my wires ready to just solder to the motor. Lazy I guess.
