if you have enough time you should list which brushless is good for each car. i also think there should be a part on popular tools and popular brands of tools, like any kind of tool. like a 1.5mm hex driver used for screws on the rc18t. one last thing this might take a long time but i think you should list the setups for some of these cars like a good carpet racing setup for that car lets just say its a mini-t. you should list a carpet racing setup a bashing setup and a street (pavement) racing set-up. it might be hard but it will really help some people. VERY VERY GOOD JOB MAN 2 THUMBS UP!!!!!!!

Great guide...... It will be very usefull for newcomers of 1/18th scale! Maybe add a little on motor choices, bl systems and brushed. Mainly because so many users post threads on what motor to buy and this would be much easier. It's just a thought. But great thread.

i think they are relly good!!especially idf you run them off 8.4 ive done that loads with the standard speed controller and it barely gets warm. they have got quite a lot of power from a 380 exept i think its geared a bit on the long side. i think they are relly good value for what you get, there are a lot of aluminium parts etc!!

That battery will work just fine. I personally like the buggy version better.
