Default Wanting new brushless system and truck but need help and suggestions

Ok i have ran brushless once. My friend has the 7700 MM and its awesome. But lately it started to cog like no other, and it used to never at all. but beside that i was wanting to get a brushless setup and new car. I want to jump, race on track and i dont care if i cant get to top speed, i have along street so i do want to go pretty fast or if i put in the right batteries it will make it fly, and just play around in the dirt and offroad. Any suggestions or Trucks? and Brushless setups/systems? LMK thanks.

I see, looks cool. But do you have any experience with it or do you know of anyone who has? Also the Amps on the esc seem very low.

Seems like you will mostly be bashing, so why not get a Rustler VXL? Strong as nails, and very fast out of the box with almost any battery. You just need a charger and battery to run and that should be right at or below your budget probably. Or you can go with a Associated T4 or Losi XXX-T CR which will be much more capable on the track, but in my honest opinion, not quite as tough as the Rustler for bashing.

The Hobbywing ESCs are good. I'll be making a new thread soon about them and I will have a few drivers test them in local racing.

Yeah i was thinking of getting a vxl vehicle but putting a different brushless in. I was lookin at the stampede or rustler, i like the build of the stampede because if i put i big battery in it i can hold it down with velcro but the rustler seems better in a different way. U was thinkin of putting a hacker motor in it, or anything really. But i do want something that will be good on heat. Anyone know?

New cog issue is probably motor bearings. I have seen this in two 5700 and now my 4600. No complaints on the Mamba Max or the castle motors.
