    at its price I'm guessing 35A
    the motor cans that come with them also look like the 35A EZ-runs just re-colored
    With great speed comes greater repair bills.

    Possible causes: Improper gearing, improper soldering, faulty battery, factory defect.

    He means if your motor is geared to high it will let out all of its magical smoke.

    I have run Mamba Max 6900 & 5700 setups off road without any issues. Most likely it was a defective ESC but when you buy cheap RC's you get what you pay for.
