Mamba 25

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Looking for info on motor choice and configuration to run the Mamba 25 system in a rockcrawling clod application. I understand that a low kv outrunner can work but can I run 2 motors on one ESC or do I need 2 ESC's and a Y conn? Any help would be appreciated....thanks

If your looking to go brushless in a clod, NO you can not use one ESC for 2 motors.. Each motor must have its own ESC, but then you are gonna need a 4 channel remote as well...The best bonus of this setup is you eliminate the common problem with clods which is clodstall.. If you decide to do this setup in your clod I wouldnt suggest the Mamba 25, go with the Mamba Max.. Hope this has been some help for ya..

yeah as he stated above the mamba 25 wont cut it for ya, as well it will not operate two brushless motors at once. you will need two escs and two motors. I think you can run the Y cable, to control both of the eSC's. but you would have to pull the red wire from one of the esc's so that only one esc would be send power to the receiver. if you dont remove the red wire you will have to much power go into the receiver and it will fry. if you go four channel or more, aka DX6 or something similar you will have way more control over the crawler, and be able to do way more with it. but that is also at a higher price, the more you want the truck to do the more its gonna cost. any more Q's just ask.
