Default LST brushless, need some help.

Hello all,
i just bought second hand lst kit+brushless convertion kit,
I need some advice about wich brushless system I should buy. and which pinion i should buy.(I have 1 speed kit)
I dont want to spend a lot of money, something like 150$ for motor and ESC,
I wanted infinite sistem from OKHOBBY but the 160A ESC are never in stock...
The lst will drive with 4-5S 5000MAH 30C~ lipo.

Thanks!

You're on the right track with the !50amp esc, The motor has to be 42mm or less in diameter to fit the motor mount, but get the longest one you can afford. Longer motor equals more torque and less heat. Stick to 2000kv or less. Something like a 4082 2000kv would compliment the Losi kits gearing nicely on 4-5s. BTW you're pretty much stuck with the 25/63 gearing of the Losi kit, can't fit smaller pinion and you can only go a couple teeth higher before needing to make the slots in the chassis longer. And if the previous owner didn't do it for you, mount the battery tray up front, it improves handling.
