Default Newbie - Cyclone d4

I was thinking of getting a Cyclone D4.

This is supposed to be one of the better kits out there. I want something that can handle brushless power.

I am not an expert at building it.

Is it okay to stick a brushless in a d4?

Will I have problems with diffs and slipper clutches since I dont know how to set them up properly?

I have had so many problems with my evader diff and slipper clutch its not funny.

Is the cyclone a heaps better engineered car and not prone to these problems?

Absolutely. Although I have not had that experience myself. Xtreme RC did a review in which they used LRP brushless esc and a low turn Vortex(?) motor in it. I believe every high-end kits will be able to handle any brushless systems. They are supposed to be used for high level modified-class racing after all. Wouldn't make sense if they can't handle brushless. I hope this helps.
