I bought the xl-5 pede back in September and have obsessed with upgrading ever since! Just about think I'm done. Well maybe some of those new FastLane CVD's and then I'll be through!! Some pics here

Welcome to the forum, your truck looks great. Nice shell/wheel combo.
How much does it weight RTR?
you know maxx wheels with Komodo tires are an option too? it's like a 40 series wheel for a maxx/savage.

Very nice, what mamba are you running?
01.11.2007, 02:44 AM
Looks good. Is that the 4600 or 5700 MM? How hot is the ECS and motor getting? What batteries you running? LOL ok i'll stop. One thing though. I'd flip that motor around. Those motor wires are just begging to be ripped off. Flip the motor so the wires are pointing up top where they are safe.

It is the 5700 mamba
I am still messing around with the proper position for the esc
the wire on the motor are so long it is hard to route them through the tower

ya, i notice that if you wheelied then you would butcher up those wires good. i would shorten the wires by less then an inch...

I was under the impression it is a no no to cut the wires i
on the mamba also does rc monster carry the new cvd's from fastlane?
01.12.2007, 08:39 PM
Not on the mamba, they even suggest that you cut to size in the manual
01.12.2007, 08:54 PM
That is nice. Well done. You like that truck?
01.12.2007, 11:02 PM
My stampede is similar to yours but i'm getting a 4600 for it

That's a real beauty. I've been toying with the idea of doing an FLM pede to add to my rusty. Is that the long bed pro-line body? Also, is it the extended chassis?
01.14.2007, 01:11 AM
yes it is the long bed body and it is the extended widened chassis

Thanks bro. Again, nice work

I appreciated the input and took the advice and made these adjustments to the wiring and fabbed my own wheelie bar
