    is this for racing or bashing? did you order standard or ultimate?
    the rpm front bumper is a little heavy
    you will want a stronger faster servo
    king headz motor mount which has the larger bearing
    aluminum center diff housing
    castle mamba pro
    mamba monster 2200 for bashing novak ballistic 550 for racing
    thats a start

    ive got a regular slash 4x4 for extreme bashing, jumps, grass, dirt, jumps, puddles, and did i say jumps? lol maybe a little speed runs on pavement. wouldnt the mmm be too much power for that truck?
    ive seen vids of tires becoming shredded due to mmm power.
    whats the difference between the king headz and stock, (other than the bearing) what does the larger bearing provide? will the stock bearing die on me soon?
    thanks

    my bad mamba max pro, yes the MMM is too much
    the KH is aluminum and the larger bearing is more durable , but the stock bearing is tiny, and yes it will die soon and cause all kinds of problems
    so if you got regular then you might want a center diff

    yeah i heard that the stock bearing is good for road use but terrible for dusty tracks or any kind of dirt or sand
    full throttle or else it must be broke but breaking it is just another reason to build it bigger and better than before!

    so the dirt gets in the bearing? does the slash 4x4 do wheelies w/o the center diff? that would be funny lol. can the slash handle mmp 2400 and 4-6s??

    i would suggest just driving it and when parts break replace them dont have the first thing to worry about being parts when you havent even broke anything yet just drive it until it breaks than upgrade! :0

    andersonwal the king headz motor mount is much better

    it uses a much larger bearing and is more durable, plus it is sealed that other one has holes for dirt and stones to get in
    yes the MMP is good up to 6s

    Thats the one i was thinking about. I couldnt remember the manufacturer. And yes the mmp can handle 6s but the internal BEC will have brownout issues.
