Default E-maxx build help.

I am new here and I am building a emaxx. It has two motors but I am going brushless and don't know if I need to use 2 motors that way? If I do two what esc do I need? I am going to run tacon 4074 motors and I have hobbywing sc8 escs. Is there a way to run two escs one to each or do I need a 6s esc or something?

I built one yrs ago and used one motor it has tins of power. you can run 2 motors and 2 esc but you have to reverse one motor if I remember correctly. honestly with the motors out today one would be plenty,I don't think the drivetrane would hold up to 2 brushless motors.you could run 3s to 6s with one and get unlimited wheelies at any speed. esc depends on if you want waterproof.

A SINGLE 1200 KV 550 can motor on 4S will rip the differentials apart.
Your ESC will be fine,not the drive train.The OLD E maxx is not designed for brush less power at all.
I had to spend big money on 8th scale differentials. Just a warning.

just built one with two 3800kv goolrc systems. to run two brushless motors you need two escs with at wire splitter to plug into channel on rx. i took one of the red wires out of esc to rx cable some people say yea and some say no. better safe then sorry imo
if both motors mount on same side you dont need to reverse one

battery size is an issue not sure what you plan on running in it
