Here is a Volcano EPX pro for 186.99. Less than upgrading your brushed system.

I can sell the novatech 70amp and 3300kv motor that the epx pro's used to have (the current ones still have the novatech motor, but an ezrun ESC) for $110 shipped.

The ezrun 60a system will work well also. just make sure you get a combo with a motor between 3000-4000kv.

Well i do not want to spend more than 80 bucs since the ezrun cost that much ,that will fit my needs.Probably i need to buy another car too because my son will not play alone so i will have to chase him with something.

If you shop hard you can get lucky. I just bought myself a used twister XTG Pro (brushless) off RCU for $110 shipped! Everything minus a battery. Thats $80 less than it costs new ( $60 less than my cost as a dealer)

It also included some better rear tires.

The volcano EPX Pro I own I got used off ebay for $85 shipped. A rare find that was! Nothing wrong with the truck at all.

My backdraft 8e I got off RCU for $150 shipped RTR with lipos! Thats half the cost of the buggy new.

Granted, I am a stay at home Dad....and I run an ebay store selling Redcat stuff. Thus, I have a fair amount of time to search threw ebay and RCU's marketplace. Deals like those dont come often...and you have to jump on them. And you have to be aware that anything new is a slight gamble. Buying new you get it new and warrentied. But I win more often than I lose
