Default Best choice for Motor

Well first of all, im new to the forums, so if this has been asked before, please excuse me. Anyways, I have a Traxxas Bandit electric buggy, it has the stock Stinger motor and stock ESC, I've had it a while and never considered upgrading it until now. I would like to know what the best motor and ESC combo would be the best choice? I do not race, but I want something that will be fast, I also dont want to spend a ton of money. Also, what would the best choice for a battery pack?

I take it you wanna stay with a brushed setup? I would go with a GTX with a cobalt 27 turn for stock. What do you plan on racing or bashing.

Yeah, I want to stick with brushed, going brushless would cost way too much for me, and I dont race, i just bash.

if your bashin more onroadish, try a checkpoint motor, spec should be good, will give more run time, better brushlife. the C027 is a sweet motor too.

Agreed on the checkpoint motor. you will want maximum motor life as a basher but still have performance. I would go with the Checkpoint money motor.

Something to keep in mind. I know you can find new MM units for about $175 shipped. In the long run, you may be much happier with the brushless setup, especially as a basher. Something to really think about for the future.
