Give it some time man! lol! It is a new one, fresh from the factory. They have less fets, but they are half the resistance of the older fets. You could run 5s with mods, but probably not 6s.

Let me know.
If it fails to work with 4S or 5S LiPo, then yes.
Otherwise:
mod1 $75.00 + S&H + 1 donor ESC
mod2 $150.00 + S&H + 2 donor ESC's
I can provide donor ESC from Tower with free S&H.

Cool you got an exact list of what you do? I will probably end up trying to get another esc or two from some crawler guy lol. He has the hook up, I sound like a crack head. I will probably end up using mambas in everything.

Do you really? I know you test but once you see, it's "can I kill it time" lol. But yeah Griffin RU do I get a discount for letting you see the new model lol. Also does the Stage two mods or whatever include the first mod? I didnt have time so I went straight to stage two. I will be back on tomorrow checking it out after school, when I gots more time.

I will push a new one tomorrow if it isn't raining. I will see how it handles 4s lipo, then try a cooler running motor on 5s if it isn't above 170F on 4s. I hit about 195f on the older ESC with a 4400kv 2221 outrunner and 4s lipo yesterday. It wouldn't get any hotter.

Good to hear. I dont even have lipos yet. I am still thinking what charger to get. My hobby shop has that Triton and triton jr. and I can save money on a power supply by running off a vehicle battery. Maybe an Ice or a superbrain 989.

I've seen the new ones, sorry no discount yet. And, yes mod2 includes all the goodies of mod1 plus doubling number of FET's.

Sounds like MM fails to work with higher number of cells when low voltage cutoff is enabled. I haven't had a chance to test this, sounds like a loop hole...

Just hooked my newest MM to 4s lipo with auto lipo cutoff. Beeped 4 times, armed, then worked just like normal with no surprises.

I don't know why there is a rumor that the new MM is any different in software, they haven't done jack to the released firmware since 1.09

After successful install of CastleLink on Windows Vista, run some tests with all Mambamax ESC's.

It works fine with 3,4,5 and 6S LiPo with no problems (do not go over 25V, electronics inside will fail at 26V) when cutoff disabled.

It would arm properly with AutoLipo cutoff, but will not count more than 4 LiPo cell's, so testing in that mode is useless and can be unpredictable, think as if software would be sensing huge voltage drop due poor connections or whatever.

It won't arm with custom cutoff at all with 6S, two LED's would be half lid, I bet illegal state. I've tried 3 times and let it go, I was afraid of damaging ESC...

Bottom line, it works above 3S with any generation, but LiPo cutoff useless above 4S.

Hang about, you did just say that all the MM escs work upto 6s/25v, if you switch off the lipo cutoff (and use a seperate LVC I presume)? Interesting, verrryyyy interesting....
