mamba monster in 4wd slash

will this work or will it eat the drive line. I really want to put a mamba monster in it on 6s lipo for some really sweet offroad jumps and wheelies.

The 4wd slash does have e-revo diffs.

You should probably change the gearing, but why not.

I believe that is on the Traxxas website.

I know that traxxas said that the manba monster is a drop in replacement for the 4wd slash. But was wondering if the drive line would hold up to that kind of power.

well if it's a drop in replacement then it should. if it doesn't then it would be a ly from traxxas.

It might be drop in, but they didn't mention about shortened drive line life.

My experience with RC has been the same as it has with full scale racing. Power doesn't break parts, traction does. If you don't have any traction to start with, adding power won't really shorten the life since you'll just be spinning the tires more.

Why would we have the power without able to put in on ground.

yes that is true, but with these things it doesn't matter nearly as much. run a really powerful brushless through a driveline that can't handle it and it will shred the gears with or without traction.

If you're going from a Mabuchi 540 to a BL motor it will obviously kill it traction or not, but we aren't talking about upping the power by an order of magnitude.
