Thinking of going brushless, any recommendations on motors?
Nothing crazy I just want it to be a nice powered drifter, not looking for top speed, want it to be controllable
Also I have a heap of 3S LiPo packs, 1800mah - 2200mah wondering if these can be used on the car?
Everything I've read, people always say 2S is enough but I don't want to have to buy a heap of 2S packs when I have so many 3S
Check out speedtechrc.com for ordering the kit, they have great prices..and a decent esc/motor combo that will get you started in brushless is the Speed Passion Cirtix combo which runs only $90 for both. If you have more money to spend then feel free to look into other brands, but for the price the Cirtix combo is pretty nice.
And for some deals on lipos visit hobbypartz.com and check out the Gens Ace lipos. You can find a 5000mah 40C 2S for $35 and you can score a nice lipo charger for under $50 (check out the Thunder chargers).
And excuse my comment about the TT01 being junk, from someone who started on a TT01 and has built every car up to the Xray/TRF cars, you really notice how lacking the TT01 is, especially when it is the same price as a TB03!
