I have an electric Rustler, and want to put a motor and esc in it, but i dont think I should go brushless yet, my budget is $150 give or take a few dollars... what can you throw at me, i am hoping for at least 45, my cousin is into rc too and told me to go with an associated reedy and duratrax esc, and that could put me in the 40's, but i need a second opinion... or third... or fourth.
Save up the xtra money and go brushless, otherwise you gonna spend 30-45 on a motor and you will need to have it cut after 20 packs at the most. You will probably be running around 5 packs a day which means 4 days of running and you will need to cut it becuase performance will be lacking. If you go brushless you will be done no need to upgrade later. So thats what I say. So maybe you could clean some peoples yard up to make some extra cash spring cleaning is just around the corner for most.
the longest lasting motor you will get is a team checkpoint motor. costs more, but will get twice the life. and i agree with the above that you should save up and go brushless. will save a ton in the longrun
89% of Revos are racers. If your Revo can out-bash and out-run a Savage, put this in your sig.
