my mamba got really hot from running the c4(9200kv). if i were you get the hacker quark 33amp esc. the mamba runs at 25amps. ino people that had the quark and the esc gets warm and not even that warm. it says in the instructions that the mamba esc is reconmended but, i don't think so. i have the castle link, put it the lowest settings possable and it helped.(a lil) if you have a castle link try lowering your motor timing,and your starting power. But i reconmend getting a 33amp quark since it has more amp current.
