MGM 160/18

Mike has them here:

It will be much easier to program it if you use the 2 cables for your computer.

I am using only the coil over PowerStrokes. I was thinking of using the same idea but just for 1 shock. I have 3.3 shafts, so if I don't have enough clearence to do this I may upgrade to CVDs.

Could you tell me if this controller worth every pennies, because for +/- $350.00CAD, it's alot more than a MM, and i've read on a tread here on this forum, somes guys how'd experiment somes problems with MGM controller.

I'am to build an e-revo, and for now, i've a MM controller and i think for a Feigao 8XL motor, but i've think to wait for the end of the winter and save money for a high-end controller (MGM or Schulze, something like that) and a Neu or Lehner motor.

But i don't know if the big $$$ difference between MM/Feigao setup and MGM/Neu setup worth the money.........

And more, i want to take a set of hybrid 1/8 scale diff for my revo$$$$

Or i'll simply leave it nitro with a big LRP Z28 Spec 3 truggy engine.

It is hard to say since I have never run a Feigao/MM. However alot of guys do and from reading the posts that system works well. I can tell you from experience that the MM/Neu is a pain in the rear. I used a MM 7700kv in a stadium truck and got hooked on the incredible speed, but had heat problems. So when I got an E-Maxx I wanted a truck that I could bash the hell out of without having to worry about not enough power to clear the jump I wanted to make or worry about it thermalling. I guess it depends on what you want. I tried to get minimal down time, so I spent the money. (Actually wife did for a gift. This is my midlife crisis. Better $1000 than a 20 year old blonde)

If i spend $1000+ on a brushless system and my wife know that, she'll cut my head with a steak knife, put it in the oven at 350 for about 3 hours and her and my 3 kids heat them for lunch

Some women just dont understand RC...
As for the shock screw thing, I thought you ment it ripped out at the top, not on the lower a-arm. In that case maybe just a slightly longer screw with a nyloc on the other side, rather than one giant screw that goes all the way through both lower shock mounts.

I only have one kid so they could eat for a while. The $1000+ was the whole truck. The Neu and MGM cost about $550.

Here is my first attempt at a video. Of course all the best action was when I wasn't rolling. It is alot easier to take still photos then a movie with one hand. the next one will be better.
