Default Old Man w/ TL-01

Made a lengthy post over in the on-road section. I'll try to keep it shorter here.
Found a pair of TL-01s while cleaning out my shop and decided I would like to build them up a little. Before anyone starts, I know that there are better chassis to be had. I have a standard and lightweight TL-01 that haven't seen daylight for at least 15 years. They deserve to run. Even old tigers hunt. lol.
My questions are, I want to brushless, what would be a good range for this chassis? Stock or tuned gear set? Not to worried about run time but, I also don't want to start a fire. I'm already looking into some suspension, wheel, and tire upgrades. Any ideas for chassis and gearing?

Hello there..we have 2 tl01 cars. I set one up for my boy with the speed tuned gear set, 23t pinion, tamiya black sport tuned motor, generic aluminum threaded body dampers, and foam tires for the carpet. Its only running off a 3000 duratrax onyx 6cell pack. It runs pretty good, decent top speed. No ball bearings, just plastic bushings. At one point i ran this car, bone stock except for 12t caliber speedworks motor, a duratrax streak esc, and a 3300 mah matched tvis pack i soldered up. The car was very fast, easy to drift etc... I would say a lighter side of brushless would work fine. Just dont over do it...good luck. Im pretty sure a tamiya sensored brushless setup would work well, or the equivalent.
