The car is a sakura zero s. I'm planning on installing the Novak vta combo when the funds become available as I plan to run it in vta eventually sound reasonable? Batteries will be 2s lipo.thanks!
My son still runs a brushed motor in the 17.5 Blinky TC. The car is plenty quick for him, and if I geared it up more he could almost keep upto the other cars. The brushed motors just dont have the same power a 17.5 BL does.
Its cheap though, most of the motors and brushes he is running have been donated to him as everyone else has switched to brushless. He is running the CO27 Trinity motors (Blue Can).
