Exclamation Mamba Max!! Need Help

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Ok, so I realize I'm a noob. Never done the whole brushless thing before. Just bought a used Traxxas Slash 2wd w/mamba max 9000k motor/speed control. Is it water proof? Do I HAVE to buy lipo batteries for something like that or will my stock traxxas battery at least run it for now? Anything a mamba max noobie owner should know. Any help is apriciated, thanks guys and gals.

Looking to get into electric! TONS of none-rc trades PLEASE pm me!!

First, the 9000kv motor is NOT recommended in an off road vehicle. See if you can buy a used 5700kv or 4600kv motor for cheap.

The motor is fine but the esc is not rated as water proof.

Any battery will run any esc/motor keeping in mind that the reason people use lipos with brushless is that they just go well together. Watch the temps on everything though if you're going to use a 9000kv motor with nimh batteries, things will heat up fast.
