New 1520 1650 can this is the mill I have been waiting for. Perfect power for Et48.3 without gearing limitations.

Good luck getting it to fit that ESC is huge!
I think that motor is about 1/2" longer than the 1515 can also.

I hate to be a dream crusher and I hope to be proven wrong but I have a hard time seeing that combo fitting.

I as well like to be bigger and better than the next guy from harleys to pickup trucks. But this set up in a ET is crazy ?

what kind of driving do you plan to do with this set up. I would be afraid you would send it into orbit off of a big jump??☄️

I have a 1515 can with a MMX and she rips. I barely have enough room for my sensor cable.

if you do manage to shoehorn this set up into your rig keep us posted on what all you break/upgrade to support all this power?

Sounds good you should never have any heat issues this way as long as your pinion is a reasonable size

Amain does run some good holiday sales may see if this is one of the deals they run in a couple of weeks

they always get some of my $$ on them end of the year sales

I love my MMX and 1515/2200 combo, but I too sometimes feel the siren song of 'more'...

I will have to try this one out in something, soon!

I just built an Et48.3 with full M2C wide body and caste 1520 MMX8S combo.
I am going to run 3.8MX badlands. So I am thinking 18 pinion? On 6S
Any thoughts?
Thanks

18t seems reasonable given the beast of a motor that is pushing it, but again like any new build you should keep temps in check.

Those tires on the other hand are massive!!

Thank You!
It’s more of a Red Bull Can than a Coke can! LOL
It’s only a 1520.
Still loving the 1520 on 6S 18T
SMC extreme 120C
Running cool .
