Being that I just finished up my et48 build, I was thinking of starting up an mt410 monster build wrapped in some badland 3.8’s. I’m torn between the sindwinder 8th 1515 2200 combo and the max 8. The sindwinder can be had for about 160 on tower hobbies and the max 8 for about 200 with program card on eBay. My questions are; what’s a good pinion size to run on either, which is the better combo of the two, and does the mamba sidewinder combo NEED a program card/ready link or can I run it out the box as is and source a program card later? Thank you in advance! I’ve searched the forums and interwebs, but my findings mainly lead me to either the rx8 gen 3 combo or talking about the previous sidewinder iteration that didn’t have the new 1515 motor.

The Max8 combo is the better of the 2, for a 2200Kv motor a 16t pinion on 4s is sweet

Looks like you got answers for all your questions except the programming part. IMO, out of the two ESC you listed I would go with the HW max8.

The ESC will come ready to go out of the box, so yes you can get a program card later.

Thanks man! The combo for the max 8 I was looking at was the ez run with the 4274 and program card. There’s one on eBay for 195. Is this a pretty good combo?

Perfect combo for the MT! 👍🏻
Thanks brother!! I figured since I went with the firma setup on the et48, I wanna give a different combo a shot!

Thanks man!!! I’ll probably run it on 4s as well! Still enough kick for doing stunts?!

I run the xr8 plus combo in mine, it’s an absolute animal. :)
I’m a new guy to tekno forum here so forgive me if I posted wrong. I have a HW XR8 SCT. Love it. A kid was “helping” me and had one wire plugged in the wrong pole. As he went to plug in 2nd wire it sparked and now esc won’t work. Can it be saved ?

Very doubtful.

Just an FYI, the Sidewinder 8 is a bit long for the MT410. The drive shaft rubs the end of the esc.
