Default E-maxx Brushless

I would like some help on going brushless with the new e-maxx. I am brand new to the sport and would like to spend my money the right way. Money is no object in this matter. What I really need help on is picking out the right set up that will work right the first time. I have my mind made up on a NUE brand motor but what size? Next thing is what brand and model number ESC?
I do not want it to be totally undriveable with gross power, but I do want a really fast truck!! Any opinions on this would be greatly appreciated. Remember money is not a problem. I am looking around $500 just motor and ESC. So let me know what really works!!!!!!!!!!!!

I use the Neu 1515 1.5d/f combined with the Mamba Max in my MBX5T. It is a very powerful, yet drivable setup (I could make it un-drivable with a gearing change). The truggy weighs about 9Lbs., 11oz. This would be a top-notch setup for your Maxx as well.

Or, if you have patience, you could wait for the Mamba Monster Max that is supposed to be around $300 with the controller and a motor design license from Nue.

If you use a Mamba Max be sure you have the latest firmware.

I am not familier with the for mentioned systems.However the novak 6.5 HV in my old style e-maxx is insane. the new(3905) will require a long pinion from here:

I just ordered the NEU 1515 1Y motor and the MGM 16018 esc for my 5905 e-maxx. Now all I have to do is order a bunch of gears to get the right setup.
I went with the mgm over the mm because the mgm is able to hold more than the MM. They do not even gurantee the mm to even run 7 cell 4200 nimh's much less 3's 0r 4's lipo. I believe that after I get every thing right that it will make a mean ride.

Hey Dirtyred, how did your brushless come out? Do you have a video and are you happy with the setup? I am ready for brushless for me 3905 emaxx but waiting until after the www.rcx.com show in April to see if MMM will be out by than. Let us know.
