Default LRP S10 Blast RTR

Looking at putting an EZRUN Brushless combo in, what size motor and esc would best suit for just bashing?

Cheers

I'd go for a 60A/8.5T combo.

2s that fits and can provide anything over 60A

Haha, try 2s first mate. 3s will be very quick. I was running a 9T/60A in my DF02 (4WD, 1/10 buggy) and on 3s my buggy was doing wheelies and was very quick.

I'm only new to brushless as i 've always had nitro, does it mean the less the turns the more power/speed etc?
My mate has the tamiya baldre with 5.5T/60A running a 7.4 5000 Venom, to be honest it dosent seem all that fast???

Running the same gearing;
Lower turn/higher KV will give you a higher top speed
Higher turn/lower KV will give you a lower top speed with more torque. but it will run cooler - even when running the right gearing to get it to the same speed as the higher KV

Ideally, you'd go for a lower KV (to an extent) and just run higher gearing with more voltage to reach the same top speed. Your setup will run cooler

Yeah, my DB01 didn't seem that fast with a similar rated motor as well. Not sure why
Like I said though, I would try 2s first.

I honestly have never used a sensored motor but from what I know.
Sensored; a lot smoother take off but have a slightly lower top end
Sensorless; cog of taking off (some more then others) but nothing bad

Normally a sensored motor/ESC combo will be slightly more then a sensorless setup.
