Default Newbie question about TC4

Greetings,

I am more of a nitro person but have been eyeing the TC4 for a few months now. How difficult is it to install a brushless system in this car? Or better yet, what is the longest running system for this car? Not looking to race, just scream around parking lots. Thanks

It all depend how fast you want it to go. Me, for a TC4, (don't actually have one) I would go with a LRP. Nice, small, affordable. Or a Novak. Also nice and small, price is a bit higher, but the esc is a bit better and the motors just scream!!! If you get a Novak Velocity 3.5 with or without sintered rotor, make a vid and post it here. They're running around 10.5k kV right out of the box.
If you see the Mamba Max on Tower Hobbies, don't buy it. The ESC is huge and their motors have nowhere near the power that a 3.5 or 4.5 Novak does.

I have the tc4 rtr and the mamba max 7700. Enough power to melt the diff and break the outdrives. Had to get light steel ones, or else it just keeps on mealting and breaking. if your going tc4 and high power brushless get the steel outdrives.

Thanks for all the info. This car will basically be a shelf king. Found a Nissan Altima shell that I will paint to match my real vehicle. But I want a nice motor just in case I take it out to one of the VORRA races.

Is this set up good?
