I take it if I want a car that can handle any motor I probably need to look beyond the S, say the TC that just came out? Are the competition level cars actually more capable or are they more about the bling?
If you are getting charged half the price of a cyclone s for a brushless motor mount you should probably be looking to buy it somewhere else.
Like i said:
Depends on brushless motor and cells.
6 cell, 3.5 and 4.5 you probably need it
5 cell you dont.
If you dont understand what that means you shouldnt be running motors of that type and you wont need the brushless motor mount.
If you are going to run anything faster than 27T stock you would be better off considering a full level kit.
It sounds like you are new to racing, if this is the case you shouldnt be considering running anything bigger than 27T brushed 13.5T for a year. There is a lot more to learn than strapping in the fastest motor to a chassis. The cyclone S is a cheaper car its tuning options are little more limited and some parts less efficient/durable.
You should probably read/enquire in the Cyclone S thread for Cyclone S queries as most people here have probably never seen one.
