Default need help deciding

i need help from the resident guru...... i need a new esc.....
i am running a 55t integy v10, 2-jr z9000t servos (300+oz), r2 tranny, and narrowed swamp kongs, on wk axles..... i need a good esc, or esc/motor combo that will handle the abuse, and the 2 robo servos and those huge tires, but i dont want somethin that is gonna give me too much power so that i am always breakin stuff...... i was debating on the sidewinder, quark 33, or of course the mamba max, all of them paired with the ccbec........ i am open to suggestions.

I'm running the Mamba Max with the CCBEC and I absolutely LOVE it! I went from a Tekin Rebel II to this and there is no comparison. The throttle is smooth and the drag brake is nice!

I don't really know anything about the quark, but I don't think you can go wrong with either the Max or Sidewinder.

I'd say the Mamba Max or Sidewinder would both be good choices, as long as you also get the CC-BEC. With those you can stick with the motor you're running, or have the ability to go to brushless if you want.
If you're going to be breaking stuff, it's gonna be because you're running Swamp Kongs on axles designed for 2.2 size or similar (WK axles).

I don't think sidewinder is bad unit.. I got interested very much

I can't find the article from CC website but they have special on March on 25 or 30% due to some issue about "made in USA" sticker from CA law that they have to make changes and company is doing some special discount..

call them.. I know it's in Mach and I saw that release last month at CC site

dang.. I found it..

I had the Mamba in my AX, then pulled for use in another car so I put the Sidewinder in it.
I can't tell the diff. Maybe the drag brake is a little weaker?? But, I only had a 7t pinion when I had the Mamba, now its 15t

In my eyes Tonka, there the same thing, unless your going for landspeed records, the I'd go Mamba.

Oh, the Mamba plugs directly into the computer, where the Sidewinder you have to buy the Castle Link software with the Servo plug-to-Mini USB adapter
