My pal has a Velineon 3500 ESC. Would this work well for the KV/3s setups you guys are recommending?

It sure would. And if you get it for a good price, go for it.

Thanks for this. I have em in my cart!

I'm struggling at the moment to choose exactly which motor. The Xerun 3656 8eight-e mentioned, the 2800 rtr, Tenshock 35-3800kv etc etc. And can the VLX ESC handle it if it's a 4 pole? Hoping to find a compelling answer but I know there may be minimal differences. You guys have saved me tons through your opinions. The amount of cash I have to spend towards the motor is unhindered. I'd be on the road again by now if I had the RTR but I purchased just the roller some time ago.

Also, I understand the MAH but how important are the C ratings for the lower KV motors?

*Edit: I'm assuming the 35+kv motors are nearing the 2s range and not the direction to go?

Not worried about waterproofing. Was just an option that came up after rummaging through friends parts.

I'm still struggling to make a decision on the KV.

RtR 2400kv

Trackstar/Tekin 2650kv

Tenshock X802

Or up to a 2800kv
I know there may be some modding involved as well. Other opinions?

Whats the driveability differences going to be etc? I'm assuming the lowest Kv's will dish out more torque but not as much top end? Keeping in mind I'm hoping to hang with, if not smash, friends Pro4's and the like. While out lasting their drive time. Help narrow my decision

*Edit: The more I look at the options the more I've been leaning towards the 2650.

2nd opinions on the 2650 Vs others? Price between the 2650 Trackstar & Tekin is $100! That much difference in the 2?
