Default vintage tamiya Rc car info requested

Igot a tamiya car #58195, what would a recommended brushless motor and speed controll combo be?dont have to be fast, the tranny only has plastic gears in side, and Ihave a 19 tooth pinion. came with a old futaba esc and am reciever, Ionly paid $25, no body. looks like it might have gone kinda fast.

Imay modify it to run off a edf fan unit, make it sorta jet powered, only problem, no brakes

no need to shout, a simple google of Tamiya 58195 would give you your answer...

without looking i'd say its a TL-01 chassis..

I'm looking for info on what brushless spec's should Ilook for, Iknow its a 540 size motor, but what brushless should I look for, mostly what KV rating, soI dont destroy the plastic gears in the tranny.

OKAY, enough said if you lock the diff's on your TL-01, IT WILL SLOW IT DOWN, I got one gathering dust on my shelf, if you put brushless i dont think you will have problem never heard those gear stripping before, they come in aluninum if you need them, Ebay. brushless 8.5 or 10.5 is good.

nearly all Tamiya on roads use the same plastic gear set up, so i doubt you'll bust them! without meaning to burst your bubble, the TL-01 isnt a racing chassis by any means, its pretty basic as far as touring cars go.

depends whether you want smooth power or adjustable power?

the Mamba Max's/Sidewinder's are very adjustable, but aren't quite as smooth as Novak's, the choice is yours..
