Default Dual brushed or brushless?

Right now I'm running 2 35T RC4WD cans on a AE5. I'm wondering if I should get a better ESC (HH BRXL) and better motors (HH CM), or upgrade to a Hobbyking X-Car 1900KV. Or possibly a Tekin ROC 412 and MMP setup. What are everyone's suggestions? I will be upgrading to all steel driveline before this.

What kind of rock crawler or scaler are you running this in?

I've been looking in to HH and i like there motors. i was thinking about a 35t for my scx10. so my suggestion would be HH. and yes a better ESC would be a good idea. i run the tekin FXR and i'm supper happy with it. you can connect it to you pc and tune it.
IMO i would only use the brushed for the crawler/ trailer rc's. i don't use brushless for crawlers so i can't recommend any. when i get a brushless it will be for my drifter.
for the metal shafts go MIP. you won't regret it.

General trailing, so I want good low speed, good torque, and lots of wheel speed (but not crazy, like not over 3000KV sensored or under 20T)

35T brushed man. it's the better way to go. good low speed and good torque. take it through water and mud. wash it out get back to running. change the brushes when needed and good to go.
it's kinda hard to get good torque and lots of wheel speed at the same time.
you can get some more wheel speed from changing the gearing. pinion/spur.

I have dual 35T brushed and I want more wheel speed, and I really like the low maintenance of a brushless setup

What vehicle do you have, Summit, E-maxx ? I'm a little befuddled as to the type of rock crawler that would have 2 motors

Then you've not been to RCCrawler. There's an E-Maxx sub-forum there, that guys have created some very capable crawlers.

I'm not out bust your balls Caleb, and I don't know how to post pics from a phone. I take pics from digital camera, and upload to my desktop to get them on here.

I've never seen a twin motor scx-10, and the only chassis I know of to mount a twin motor setup, would be a Summit or E-Maxx, so I'm curious

I'm not sure either on posting pics. i'll sigh in on my phone later and try it out.
On the dual motor scx10 setup medic from over on rcsparks runs his dual. it's helpful a thing gives it some oomph. it takes up space from interior stuff if your in to that.
RCC has some good builds over there. cool to see what others do with there RC's.

hi guys i am currently running a 10.5T hobbywing quickrun sensored brushless motor and esc in my scx10 dingo if its tuned right down it has plenty of crawl capability with excellent drag brake and can still manage a good amount of torque plus with the option of nimh or lipo batteries its not a bad setup for 70 ish,
also the best twin motor scx ive seen so far is this guy he went well over the top lol

Ok to post pic's from your phone. after your signed in and are in the reply section look for (go to full site). then go back to where you were in the reply section. now you should see the pic icon at the top of the reply to thread message box.
RC Adventures is a cool YT channel. Medic seems to be a cool guy with a bunch of crazy cool RC's. i often find a way there when i'm on you tube.

Heres my dual motor truck, thanks RustedRC for showing me this. I've resented decided to run this setup, HobbyWing 45A Brushless ESC and a HobbyFans 3300KV motor. See how good it crawls here: http://www.rcsparks.com/forum/thread...s-combo.38755/
