I have seen it w/ brushless setup before.. the thing would wheelie, LOL!! The drivetrain can take it!
It is more of a cost issue -> do I want to build another $500+ vehicle, ha!
(remember my Blitzer Beetle?! went from a $40 beater to what?! $500-600? ha ha ha ha!!)
I think I will start out w/ 540 silvercan first...
