Thanks Nitro. I will look into those. I will probably go the brushless route.
Its worth it IMO
a brushed motor will run you $20.
You can get a better brushed motor, that will run you $30-$40 if you also upgrade the ESC. But a better esc is another $30 (used)
So a $60-$80 brushless system is a better spend.
Just make sure the motor in the system is no lower than 3300kv...or you will have to re-gear the truck. A 3500-3900kv motor would be better.
