vxl has the velineon system which is BL. The standard XL-5 is brushed. the VXL also comes with bearings all around at the wheels while the XL-5 comes with bushings.
Basically the XL-5 can be fully upgraded to the VXL at a later date if needed/wanted.
The VXL motor and MM esc idea sounds like a good idea and what I may be upgrading my old school (pre xl-5, came with a MECHANICAL SPEED CONTROL!) Stampede
