DARKWAV... i have seen a pic of your truck early on in this thread and fell in love! haha so do you have a standard 10 with the brushless system in it?! how much does a brushless set up, and whats good? Im just getting back into the hobby.... bear with me. Also what all do you have set up wise for your truck? And thanks for your help and advice!
Thanks for the kind words.
I haven't taken many more pictures of the truck since the ones in this post:

Yes I bought the brushed version for $189. It took another 6 months it seems before the E-Firestorm Flux hit the shelves. Went with the Sidewinder 5700 system for $130. I would just recommend going right for the Flux though, better value. ESC is the same as the Sidewinder but the Motor is user-servicableā¦and black! I would only go for the brushed version if you're looking for a 60 MPH setup and want to put the money saved towards a more powerful brushless setup. I'm perfectly happy with the 2S 5700Kv setup which is more speed than you need for even an 1/8 scale track.
