I have the MM, and I like it. Although senorless just isn't somth enough for me on the track. But for bashing you will love it.

I am running a Sidewinder in my crawler, though I'm only using a brushed motor with it. I prefer to use brushed motors for crawlers, they handle low RPM better.

I love the thing, and having the Castle Link helps to, the tune ability is nice to have.

I dont have the sidwinder, but i have to say, sensorless is becoming better, the cogging is progressivly lessening.

Really it depends on what you are going to use it for. If you are racing then a sensored set-up is a better choice. In racing you want fine control as most of the time you might not even be on full throttle (well with off-road, and some on-road). Although when it comes to bashing, the amout of power that a SL sytem can make is unreal. Also a SL system will run a little cooler.

Also, sensorless is more economical. it is ussually about 30-50 bucks cheaper than a comperable sensored system.

Actually I just took the tranny apart and all the gears are steel! Lucky me, but I don't know if the driveshafts can tahe it, they're really soft. But I cant get a bl now as my XC bike just klonked out in the front end, so I need to fork out $200+ for a new fork. Crying or Very sad

Aw, that sucks!!! At least someone didn't steal your $450 Giant mountain bike!!!
Now if i ever find that guy, I"ll...

3 hours of trash talk later...

Ok, I'm done now. Where were we?
Oh ya, the bl system.

The drivetrain should be able to handle it as if it were a walk in the park, but deffinatly not the driveshafts, trust me, i snapped a steel driveshaft twice so far on my xxx-t!

Thanks for the advice! Don't wanna break a car thats worth $300+ and has completely unreplaceable parts, although I have heard of people using B44 cvd's in 'em.
