Exclamation Best Brushless Motor And Lipo Batteries

For my birthday next month I am going to get $300.00 and I was wondering what is the best brushless motor for my Traxxas Ruster, I am thinking of getting a Mamba Max Motor!

My Questions -

What is the best Brushless Motor for my Rustler?

What is the best Lipo battery I can get?

What kind of wheels/tires are the best?

What is the yellow thing that measures your speed and distance?

What are some parts that come in aluminum?

Please Answer!

Questions are good but we kinda need to know what you plan to use it as..

Ex... Dirt or Street If you want flat out speed the Traxxas VXL system with 11.1V lipo is a screamer. Or you could go with the mamba system which is very good also but there are different motor sizes. The 7700 would be too much on dirt so you'd probably go with the 4600 or 5700. But you could also go with the 5700 with a 11.1V lipo and have a fast fast street machine also. Can't recommend batteries till you know what you want to use it for because some awesome lipos only come in a 7.4V version. Kinda see what I mean... each will have their strengths in certain arenas. Narrow it down a little for everyone and you'll probably get better responses.
