just got into the hobby wanting brushless upgrade for mrp ripper st 1/10 eventually
Just bought a 1/10 scale mrp ripper st that comes stock with a brushed motor. I will eventually want to upgrade both the motor and esc to a brushless setup and maybe go from nimh to lipo battery as well but my question is. Can I just simply buy a esc and motor designed for 1/10 scale or do I need to purchase a proprietary one from mrp. Also im not sure I want to also replace the battery pack from nimh to lipo or do I have to at the time of converting the motor and esc also do the battery as well or can i continue using the nimh that came with the car. I ask because the guy at the store said for me to upgrade this thing to brushless it would cost about 250 bucks and i felt that was crazy considering the car only cost 150 bucks. I see some esc brushless motor combos for 1/10 scale much cheaper that 250 so I was hoping that could be an option rather than forking over 250 dollars more i may as well just buy a new truck if thats the case.
