First post here, as I can usually find the answer I'm looking for just by searching other posts. However, I have not been able to find much on this topic. I'm looking to convert my 3905 E-maxx to brushless. I want to keep it kind of mild, as the E-maxx is a very durable truck as long as you don't push it too far, which is why I was thinking of the MMP SCT system. Anybody done this? I know the KV's on the motor are low enough, I'm more concerned about the ESC. Can it handle it? I have a pile of 4000mah 40C 2S Gens Ace lipo's that I currently run on the EVX-2 ESC with low voltage alarms. Unfortunately I think the Lipo's were too much for the EVX-2, cuz it is fried now. Thanks in advance for the help

Go for it. I know that the MMP can handle it cause the Savage flux 2350 has this esc and I've also used it on my 1/8 Twin Force on 4s with a Leopard 3674 2370kv motor. Not sure if that Castle motor will he able to handle the weight of the E-Maxx.

Actually, the motor was the only part I wasn't worried about. It is a 1415 series neu castle motor, which means it is a 4-pole motor. Plus it comes with a cooling fan. I've heard that the mmp might have too weak of a bec to handle the twin servos on the Maxx. Know anything about that?

I don't think the MMP's BEC is any weaker than the Mamba Monster's BEC and it seems to be able to handle both Traxxas 2075 servos pretty good. Just don't use Savox servos without an external BEC.

Motor is a little small, would depend on what speed you are planning to gear the car for

Larger 1500 series motor would be a better option if you can afford it

MMP will handle it fine if planning to only run 4s

You will need to run an external bec with any decent servo

Cheers

Thanks for the input, I am only planning on running 4s. Im mainly trying to gain a little bit of low end torque with this setup. Like i said in the first post, i would like to keep this thing in one piece. One more question. Does the Mamba monster motor bolt right up to my dual motor plate, or is the hole spacing different? Thanks again.
