    Default whats the BEST esc/motor combo for stampede 4x4....

    like the title says i wanna know what you think the best motor /esc combo for a stampede 4x4 is


    here is the beckground .... im finaly almost paid my insurance and costs off so im gunna buy a stampede 4x4(or a revo)
    but i plan on using it offroad quite a bit and in wintre so i plan on running 1/8th scale rubber part time or if its possible to gear low enough (ill reduce punch as well) run 1/5 scale rubber
    i also plan on making homemade tracks for winter

    anyway so far for an esc im thinking mmm or mmpro the differences i know of are the sensord capabilty
    (mmpro) and the ability to better whith stand the amps to move the large tires etc i plan on using(mmm)
    other than that im clueless for the mmm idk what kv of motor to go whith and for the mmpro idk what brand is good for sensord motors or anything

    ....basicly feed me some info and pros and cons

    why would it not handle 6s if the driveline is identical to the slash 4x4 just further from the ground?

    Because the drive train is not the only thing involved.. Larger tires and more weight. Guys are busting the rear ends often.. if your going to even run just 3S lipos i would say you need the MIP Xduty CVD's.. But honesty even on 3S its hard to keep it going straight.. lol i can't see how 6S would be any fun at all..

    i would have xduty cvds for shure...and why 6s because the look on my non rc freinds faces when they see it pull the front wheels fast enough that i would get a ticket in a car lol...and so i can buy two 3s and just run em together once inawhile

    arent the diffs in the stampede revo spec or the same as the ones in a revo ....which means smaller tires and less weight than a revo? which runs 6s

    I run the MMP and the 3800kv 1410 SC 4 pole in mine and its great on 2s. Never tried 3 yet. I can't imagine 4s. The 2s twist the shafts quick enough in the rear. I would guess the SCT Sinewinder w/fan on the esc would be good. Or just keep it stock and pick up a heatsink for the motor and VXL fan. That should be good

    True, but the battery weight of 6S is balanced on an E-Revo, whereas this truck isn't, throwing the chassis balance all out of whack. The battery is all down 1 side and the motor on the other won't balance it out. You'll be making hard left turns on throttle. The center shaft ends are not going to hold up to 6S either. 4S is about the max. for this truck, still crazy power and good for 70mph. ThomasP has one and it is bananas.
