Default NewB here wih a few questions

Let me start off with hello and great forum!

I have an old RC10L2O it used to be a real nice car but now with all these new cars out it seems subpar. I would like to get rid of the old Raven peek racing brush motor out and upgrade to a brushless setup. I was wondering what would be a nice motor to start with that wont break the bank. Also is there anything else that I can retrofit onto this car from a later model car to make it more modern?

Thanks in advance!

Since it doesn't sound like you are worried about ROAR sanctioned events, etc. you might want to consider the Traxxas Velineon combo -- the motor and ESC go for around $160 or so, and I'be been racing against these in local dirt oval, and they seem quite fast and reliable... Like most Traxxas items, you should be able to get local hobby shop support if you have questions or issues...
