    I burned up the ESC in the summit last week. Apparently the EVX-2 cant handle 6S for long. I'm thinking either just replace it of put the money towards a Mamba monster system or anything else you guys can think of.

    Thanks for your input!

    Since the EVX-2 is only designed for 16.8V on NIMH < aka dual 7 cell> im surprised it last at ALL on 6S... for the money youd spend on an EVX-2... go to Holmes Hobbies and get one of thier Torque Master BR-XL's wiuth the Epoxy Waterproofing. Its 6S capable, Brushed motors, and can be wired for dual motors.. AND programmable Drag Brake as a bonus...

    I would buy an RX8 system over the MMM, they are way smoother. There is a nice video on youtube showing some small crawling with a summit with a MMM and it shuttered and cogged enough to make it hard to do any slow stuff, but the RX8 setup was butter smooth. Homles esc is too small. Its basically a sidewinder.
