I mounted the MMP onto the Slash 4x4 using Snappy RC Mamba Max Pro Mounting Kit. It was a simple bolt-on mount. Very clean.
The only issue I had during initial MMP setup was having to obtain and solder/shrink wrap the necessary/matching bullet connectors to the motor and the MMP. I got the matching connectors from my local hobby shop.
Setting the throttle and brake limits via the stock Traxxas 6507 TQi 4 Channel Transmitter with 5 Channel Receiver and Docking Base was extremely easy, and I initially never got past that paragraph in the instruction booklet before I started driving. The difference in my driving experience was immediately recognizable. The MMP simply kept going, and the power just poured on. Using stock gearing, I was hitting 56-58 miles per hour without breaking a sweat - on GRASS! I ran out of grass (in a park) before I could reach maximum velocity. On pavement it was CONTROLLABLY fast, especially from a dead stop (unlike the original ESC). As many of you probably already know, once you start going fast, rapid turning is out of the question. :-) So I digress. My motor would reach 150 deg F (when I stop driving) while the MMP kept humming along.
Knowing that the MMP can do much more, I downloaded the Castle Link software and plugged in the USB adapter (http://www.amazon.com/Castle-Creations-Link-Programming-Adapter/dp/B000BOG8V0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1390344098&sr=8-1&keywords=castle+link) to the MMP. The software was very easy to use, and connected immediately to the MMP. Once the Castle Link USB adapter is connected with the appropriate polarity to the ESC cable the USB adapter will light up "green", indicating that you have the correct orientation on the plug. The Castle Link software will also indicate that everything is ready to go. The explanations offered by the software were very easy to understand even for a novice RC car driver like myself. I was able to further adjust the throttle settings so I maintain control of the car starting from a dead stop and going to full throttle. Adjusting braking power was also very helpful so my driving control and experience is improved. From what I can tell, the fan on the MMP kept it running cool, so it never went into any sort of shutdown.
The Castle Link USB programming adapter can be purchased from Amazon or Castle Creations. My MMP came with a coupon code for a free Castle Link USB adapter.
If you need a reliable and powerful ESC for your 1/10 scale RC car, I would highly recommend this ESC. Absolutely no regrets getting this ESC so far.
