Default Brushless XXL C/C 1717 1580kv 6s 5000mAh

Hi, I thought I'd share a video my six year old son shot for me the other day. He did a great job!!
My truck started out stock just over 12 months ago and since then I've upgraded to the lrp.30 with the m2c 4 shoe clutch, m2c mount, big daddy fuel filter, motor saver air filter along with rpm arms, I've tried aluminium towers, bumpers (bought and home made), rc raven springs, lunsford rods, new era roll bar, aluminiumthreaded shocks, titanium rods and almost every other hop up/mod and upgrade I've found on the net. I then went brushless with the castle creations 1515 1y 2200kv MMM combo on 4s 5000mAh and found myself taking off a lot of the aluminium parts due to both weight and the extra damage that they cause. Soon after, I decided to upgrade to the 1717 1580kv motor on 6s 5000mAh and I've never looked back. I get over half an hour runtime with safe enough temps and can change the gearing to suit my run style depending on location, I'vehad the gpsover 100kph (very hairy though, not much left on the surface) butthe current set up runs consistant 85-90kph througha wholelipo pack without overheating anything. I love this truck and would be happy to be on the brushless side of a "nitro-brushless" debate with anyone.
here's a link to my latest footage with the 1717 and some older footage of the 1515 is what I was useing when at the track (in the 2 video's at the track you'll hear that I had still yet to learn how to set the slipper clutch, all better now). I hope you enjoy.
