gravedigger ill help u, i just went thru this....


i use integy 65t motors and have had no issues with it but some people have said i should of done 45t, once you get 2 motors you like grab the STOCK losi pulleys, if you grab any others the belt will walk all over the pinions because they dont have a guide for the belt. then get bigger gauge wire, 12g will be fine, i used novak wire but wet noodle works good too, also while your at it get new connectors for your battery i use deans with my lipo. here are links to the motors i used and the pulleys
