Here is a link to the cap you need - Just solder it on a couple of short leads close to the battery connections on the MM. I have 3 MM burn up before I started adding these - Since I did I've never had an issue...

As for the fans - these should be ok.

Very welcome



Yea, I really like that idea of tranny-diff idea instead of big emaxx tranny. I will work it in eventually. Thank u




What do you recommend for 6 volt fans ? ?
going to use a Deminsion engineering BEC. I have Castle becs but I am using them in my Crawlers.
Humm , not sure just yet how to fit-add a Cap on the mamba, Castle tech said it will do well because they are so over built.
I'm stealing the MM out of my Latest Creation Full Throttle custom Super Crawler, build thread just added to my sig, it's got 6 watt 4 speaker MP3 stereo loaded in it complete with Real V8 engine sound.
Here's a sneak peek




My latest creation below
Console shifter turns car on
twin stick turns on stereo Amplifier
Sony MP3 with Tunes and Real V8 engine sound
18" wheel base 14" wide
Axial trans
Revo drive shafts
Losi aftershock Diffs, custom lockers
Hyper 8 shafts
Xtm hubs
custom SS axle tubes and Knuckles
1/4 Tube steel MIG welded Chassis
2wd, 4wd and DIG by Remote
HiTec 7955 front rear steering servos
Castle bec
Mamba max
Climbs great when tires are working, Moabs stink

dude! i love that crawler. thats what i want to build soon. i will hit you up with many questions when i do i am sure. it looks great. here is my most recent build. http://www.maximizerproducts.com/max...mm_Hex_C35.cfm

as for 1/5 scale wheels and tires check here.
http://www.oversizerc.com/c/167427/1...and-tyres.html
http://www.hm-modellbau.de/shop/

its in german but you can usually tell what it is saying by deciphering from the pics. or you can translate using this site.
http://www.freetranslation.com/

and for more 1/5 build info contact Mohanjude here on the forum. he has built more 1/5 stuff than anyone i know and has lots of resources as he lives in europe where 1/5 is more dominant.

Wow Thank you very much Arct1k and RYU thatnks for the compliments
that's a big help.
I recently found large scale.
When I get a job and have some money I will be upgrading this project or start a bran new one.

Well Tyler Christmas is upon us so hopefully Santa will help us with some parts
Had a tough time with that site, poorly done, lacks pics big time.

I have been searching for tires for awhile and narrowed it to the least expensive
What do you guys think ?
Both sets of 4 are the same size other than the Proline being barely wider
The New Slicks 110mm tall X 43mm more likely to Drift on these than the proline and only $24. to my door by Ebay
Or the Proline Road Rage tires slightly used and could be ok on street hopefully still allow some drift action and be cool on hard pack dirt
I could go with the slicks do to street driving and worry later about dirt tires unless I could accomplish some drift action and dirt action on the same tires. I can't wait to Drift it and drive it at the BMX park !

I like the crawler with sound system sweet! Now we need to find a way to get a Bass booming system in a pimped out low rider Rc on Duce Deuces(2.2"). I've thought about running a walkie talkie in a rc vehicle and say things over it to people close to it at the park.

If you want to drift, you will need locked rear diff and tight front diff or even locked.
For tyres, i wouldnt go for any pipe, as you have so much power, so try taping tyres for first run, as with pipe you wont have any traction.
I drive 1/10 drift car, and my setup is soft springs and absorders, and locked rear and tight front diffs.
But you cant race and drift with same setups, it makes other one much harder.
And solid center diff, if you have any.

thanks Jabe
Since I already have locked Front & rear and parts to swap to a diff
What problems will there be for offroad?

Basically I am NOT looking to make a All out Drift car but a Rally car with the motor,power and tires to Allow some slide action when on street

and for future upgrades should I run a Diff in front or front and rear and then what Weight of oil ?


Anybody know what Tire great for Hard pack ?

Just got back from hobby shop, picked up a 13t pinion for the Feigao motor, I was not sure where to start on size but it was all they had for 32 pitch

Eventually I'll go with Neu 1515 or something motor
Thanks every body

I'm back ! I got wheels

Help me with suggestions on an ESC !!

I dropped in my Mamba max and 12 nimh cells !
I'd say it maybe goes 22 mph with locked 4wd


so Shopping for a ESC
Mamba monster = only 6s lipo , possible 50 mph with Two 3s lipo 5000
MGM = 10 S lipo max , speeds over 70 mph maybe 80+


Car Weight
7.5 lbs
with Motor no battery 9 lbs
Loaded with 12 Nimh cells 12 lbs


Work To Do:
Motor needs to be lowered onto chassis
Bigger Shocks
Neu motor, not sure which one, maybe 1515
Needs Front Differential or a Xray Trans diff

ESC options:
MMonster
or
MGM 9032 Car/Boat controller 90 Amp

Latest Firmware installed! Future updates via computer download.
New "traditional" style construction with dual heatsinks!
Perhaps the ultimate "big truck" brushless controller! Dual Heatsinks, direct soldered battery and motor leads, 150000 rpm capability( with 2 pole motors), a 90amp capability with up to 32 cells or 10s LIPO packs!Programmable Lipo voltage cutoff, small size. This is among the best controllers available for high voltage brushless applications!


other high power ESC's 100-250 amp

Man thats a very neat conversion. I really am considering to extend my warhead evo into a 1/5 but it would have to be a "trophy truck" look or I wouldnt do it. I figure it would cost me $75 shipped for an fs-racing 1/5 mt body and another $80 shipped for an fs-racing 6061 milled 1/5 flat chassis.

Sounds good.
Where is this $75 mt body and chassis ?

hey Thanks emaxxn

yea the MGM can do 10S but it is lacking the programing functions, like Tekin RX8 or MMM

5S isn't bad
but 6S or 8S or even 10S would be Sick !


I did some gear changing
58 Spur 32 pitch
21 pinion
3S lipo 2250 30C, took from my crawler
The wheels burn out and has tons of Torque !
I think speed was 25mph

I think I drop in a 25 pinion or a 21 with 48 spur
but cant wait to have 6S lipo

So I was thinking Two 3S lipo with the MMM and when the bugs and drivetrain are worked and upgraded and I have a good paying job again it will get 10S lipo or more
I want this Thing Crazy fast

Sorry for so many questions, I am a newb but reading and trying to learn

Before I break the emaxx diffs I'm going to throw in LST Diff in the rear
Is there a Spool / locker for the LST LST2 diffs ?

I heard that a rear Diff with front spool would help the sliding and progression of forward movement
So I am wondering what a Center Diff would do, any advice on this ?

I'm looking for ways to clean up and Lighten the the drivetrain
Does anyone have a Center diff ? like a Xray808 setup ??

I have been searching all over, it looks easy to build but now there is mechanical brakes which sound really cool, that would really make drifting easy with applying front brakes
