Considing you can buy a new EMAXX with a Mamba Monster installed, I'd say it's fine.

I can vouch that they are mighty beefy.

LST2 transmission is pretty much bullet proof.
I've seen may E-Maxx transmissions fail.

Thanks guys i was not going to use a lst transmission because i thought i would have to use the aux to engage reverse, but after a few Google search i found you can remove the one way bearing and lock the gear so then i can use the esc for reverse and brakes. LST box it is Thanks again everyone :)

Rite, in my LST2 XXL my transmission has the FOC conversion, it also has the gear swap giving it just a little more top end.
Also get either ''The Dude'' single speed hub or the Losi single speed hub, this allows the use of the motor for reverse.

LSTForum''dot''com is a great source of information on these transmissions.

Good luck.
