Slash 4x4 Ballistis - 03.11.2010, 06:51 PM

Wondering what you guys think about a ballistic 5.5T with a MMP on 2s in my slash 4x4. WIll the Novak sensor plug work with the MMP? What size pinion would you say to start with?
I mostly bash but plan on going to a few races this summer. I'm mostly looking for 30-35 MPH on 2s for bashing or on my back yard track.
Is this a good set up or did I make a mistake?..lol
Thanks guys for your help..

Is the only reason for the change to go sensored?

Otherwise I'd stick with stock BL for 30-35mph. The VXL system is not bad consider it lacks tune-ability.

So your saying the sensored wire on the novak will plug right into the MMP.
Also are you saying that the 5.5T wont give me 30-35mph on 2s?
I dont care for the stock VXL system. Runs way to hot and no programming. So for me it's not an option.

You might not be able to get a small enough pinion on the Ballistic 5.5 to keep it from overheating.

I wouldn't run the 5.5T in the 2wd Slash much less the 4wd.

I would look to a buggy motor, something in the 3000kv range if you want to run 2s, or something in the 2500kv if you want to run 3s.

Not the news I wanted to hear.. It is what it is and I guess I will send back when I get it next week. Would the ballistic 13.5T 3300KV give me what I'm looking for?

Why such a small motor?

And are you dead set on a sensored setup?

I'll echo the recommendation from asheck...go with the HV version.

They do have the 13.5T for the same price.. But if you guys think HV 5.5T would be better for $10 more then I will return and go with that..

HV5.5 would be a much better choice.

FWIW, I just got in 2 Mamba Max Pros that will be going in 2 of my 3 4x4 Slashes. I'm planning on running a HV4.5 on 2S lipo in one of them and the other will get a HV7.5 on 5S for a go-fast on-road truck.

But wouldn't the ballistic 13.5T put me at my mark of 30-35mph on 2s? Would I have good gearing options to keep cool?

Not sure if I want to move things around for the HV motors. Plus there out of stock..lol
