Mamba Max 5700 Tuneing Tips

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hey everyone! I just purchased a Mamba 5700 for my xxx-cr.This is my first real brushless system and I'm looking to get the most out of my system. I've been playing around with it for about 4 hourse now trying to figure out the best way to tune it and all i'm getting is bland acceleration.I've tried increasing the acceleration curve greatly but the results dont seem to be changeing?

Maybe if some of you can share you're experiences in tuening your Mamba I'll be able to find the sweet spot.

So far I'm only running a 6cell 4300mah NiMh for now but I plan on upgrading to a 2s in the very near futur. I'de like something with as much acceleration as controllably possible. I'll be running at fastcats and the track back home which is fairly high traction aswell.My current settings on the mamba are:
Punch Disabled
Start Power High
Motor Timing Normal

Thanks for the Help!

Congrats on the new Mamba system,I had the 6900 and it was just insane with a 8-cell 4000 pack!!!!!

I would start at engaging the disengaged punch set up........

Iv owned a couple mamba systems and they have insane power. I tuned everything down. Try tuning the start power on low and the timing on lowest. You are still going to have too much power even with these settings. I had the 5700 punch control on 100% when i had it in my 2wd. If you want to post the options that are on the speedo, ill let you know what all my settings were. Hope it helps.

Wow....I'm officially scared of this thing. Turns out my computer wasnt properly reading the ESC. I've now got a 6" long welt on my arm Damn thing took off in my hands and rode up my chest. I really wasn't expecting it to torque out like that. Thanks for all the tips!!!
