That sucks to hear. A while back in the XXXT-CR thread I read where some people are pre-tapping the holes in the EA3 plastic. And there have been positive comments about doing the build that way. And others say not to get crazy when tightening the screws.

So did you strip the heads of the screws, or the material the screws thread into? Sorry to hear that. I've only stripped a few screw in RC. they were on my Revo from a couple years ago.

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LWD157&P=1 $170 for the novak brushless 8.5 xbr combo, and its the same power as around a 13-15 turn brushed motor, and you never have to worry about worn brushes, or burnt comms.

plus you can find coupons from tower alot of the time for $15-$25 off.

lol...hey it wasnt meant to be mean....

just was saying hah...ultimately its your call, but for bashers brushless is the best thing. and a full system for $170 is crazy, and the esc in the xbr combo will even run brushed motors, and is a no limit brushed speed control.

If you like bashing than reliability and run time is key. That's why people keep suggesting brushless. Most brushless motor/esc combo's are over 80% efficient versus the 40-60% efficient brushed motors. (less heat, more run time)

Brushed motors are way to high maintenance, dirt, water, brush dust in the bearings, oil -but not here or there... pain in the @ss.

I've got an xxxt I bashed with brushes and brushless, everyone who has a brushless setup just isn't going to recomend brushed stuff. It's just that much better.

If you want cheap and don't want to kill the truck trying for insane curb smashing speed, I recomend the Mamba Max ESC with a $35 Ammo motor (36/50/3600) and some good NIMH packs.

Castle Creations (makers of the mamba max) are coming out with the sidewinder ($75 esc) early January 08'. Might be perfect for what you want.

Steer clear of the novak heat boxes for bashing, just my opinion.
