If you go Mamba X i would spend a little more and grab a Holmes Hobbies puller pro motor.

If you stay with the hobbywing motor, grab a hobbywing esc like the max10 or the XR8, it would save cash.

To be fair they are similar prices for the motor, but I want a waterproof ESC really (hobbywing are not). The Servo I can waterproof at home using conformal coating.

I don't mind mixing and matching brands, and the new hobbywing motors are superb. The problem is getting the waterproof holmes motors is very pricey as I'm in the UK. I would need to pay import as Rcmart don't stock many of their models.

The only holmes one they have is the TrailMaster Pro BL 540 3300kv, but it comes with a 3.17mm shaft not 5mm like the Hobbywing.

So I got my 2nd hand bomber, in excellent condition.

Imgur gallery here: https://oscarstewart93.imgur.com/all/

Here it is in bits, I am getting rid of the Hyrax tyres that are mounted on faultline beadlocks, and have on order some Pitbull Growlers U4 edition with chinese aluminium beadlocks.

I rebuilt the shocks with green slime to prevent them from leaking, 30wt oil in the rear, 20wt in the front.

I now need to order the vanquish sway bar, a good servo and a BEC.

Nice shock holder! Iíve resolved to using deep well sockets for mine. They works surprisingly well and the CowRC Mat give them just a little added stability.

As this is a secret bomber being kept from the other half, it lives at my office and my wrenching time is 1 hour per day (lunch break). That's also the time I will be using to run it.

Links made up, also need to swap some connectors out to XT60 and solder the relevant connectors to hook up a castle BEC.

Savox 1283 ordered.

Fitted the links today, got to solder in my BEC and change batteries over to XT60.

Growlers arrived along with the Crawler Innovations 5.5 comp cut with medium outer foam, now waiting on my chinese beadlocks...

Quick run in the warehouse after installing the BEC. Still waiting for plenty of parts for this. In the below pictures is pretty much stock apart from the incision links and the BEC.

I killed my stock tactic servo 3 minutes after installing my Incision steering links just driving around on carpet in my living room! And I had the end points set short so it wasn't binding.
Plan for a servo upgrade

Oh how I love all those screws that go into chinese aluminium beadlocks, having to thread lock them all

Vanquish trailing arms, 550 21t motor and DMG spare relocation kit turned up too! Now need to mount the tyres to the beadlocks, install the trailing arms, motor and relocation kit.

Got some beef to install. Servo also turned up, along with the sway bar so plenty to get installed now, and that will be it for a while until I have the funds for beef tubes and then I will think about clamping lockouts, c-hubs, knuckles and then maybe brushless motor and ESC. I'll still be running the stock ESC unless it goes up in smoke with the new 21t 550 motor.

Incision gears, Incision spools, Axial uni's

All installed, now I need to run this thing!

The Incision gears are super smooth, even smoother than Axial HD gears!

How is the quality of the wheels and how hard was it mount the tires?

Easy to mount, excellent quality. I've used other Chinese beadlocks that are similar on a yeti with no problems.

I've used some before on a yeti, they hold the tyres very well and I never popped a bead even at high speeds. They also hold proline beads very well

So the motor isn't even getting warm on the 10/64 gearing, so I will go back to the stock 12/64 and possibly try 14/64 to get a little more top end out of it. Ok I was only running it for 40 mins but that's about all the time I ever really get to run it anyway.

One small casualty, a yeah racing servo horn...

My bomber came with a cheap lightbar, one of the mounts broke as soon as I touched it.

Savox servo box (packaging) cut up and made into mounts not the tidiest of jobs but it's functional and I can take it off if it breaks.
