Question about cross compatibility.

Heya, im working on building a converted E-revo from scratch.
I would like to know if i need a Monster Mambo ESC with my 2200KV Castle motor or could i run with a Tekin or other 1/8 scale BL ESC??
To keep costs down on this build for the time being im in the market for used and dont want to keep my options narrowed right down to 1 model if i don't need to have the MMM.

As far as electric goes if it's the same type (brushed/brushless) it will work if the sensered motor can be run sencerless. Since you are running a sencerless motor any 1/10 up esc will actualy work as long as it can take the imput voltage you are giving it.

Sice you have a revo i wouldn't go with any 1/10 esc and go with the CCMM
