    what is plus and minus of ESC?

    I am looking into getting my boys the Traxxas Rustler for a starter vehicle. They sell them with and without the ESC.

    What are the advantages/disadvatages of having or not having the ESC?

    PLUS'S
    Longer run time as the ESC's are more effecitent
    less weight Mech SC weigh more
    just better over all

    Minus is higher cost, depending upon the difference you may be able to buy a better esc and still have the msc for a spare

    You'lll have a extra servo too.

    there are no minuses with the esc... Longer runs, smoother acceleration and reverse with the traxxas unit.. I don't know if the mcs even has this.. The other plus are more motor choices... the difference of $30 is worth it.. The extra servo isn't worth $10...
    If it has wheels... I\'\'ll make it fly

    If you plan to upgrade the ESC(Stock ESC isn't very good), get the MSC. You save like 20 bux, and you can save that up to buy a better ESC.

    The only disadvantage is cost

    RE: what is plus and minus of ESC?

    well i have a electric rustler with the esc and i tell u its so worth it
    msc's are crap IMO cuz they are les efficient and heavy
    the electric rustler is a great beginner car (was mine 6 years ago no probs ever with it)
    i have a emaxx but its a little pricey ull prolly pay about $500 with a bunch of batts and a good charger and is a little fast
    how many boys u have? get 2 rustlers if u have 2 cuz after they drive this for a minute they wont let go of it
    comin soon (maybe tomorow, comon ups!!) crt pro kit with nova rex p421b and hitec servos. mayhem now has hitec servos!.

    My preference has been to get the model w/ manual speed control then keep the extra steering servo as it usually is the same and then upgrade the esc to a slight better one than comes with the esc model/
