It's still worth it if it only handles slower mod motors, for street running on a budget like I suspect you do then a stock motor is the best idea, it will run longer and require a lot less maintanence. As you've said your msc can't handle a mod motor anyway. If you have one in your other car and a mod motor then the mod can't be a low wind motor, msc's just can't handle the high current draw, simple as that. Low end esc's also can't handle high current draw but they do offer more run time, more controlability and more speed. Going out and bidding on the first thing you see on ebay is also not a very good idea, try doing some research first, especially when you say money is tight, spend it wisely.
did you say it might be able to handle a higher turn motor like a 17x2 mod motor?

Well, the duratrax sprint is rated for 20 turn motors. I don't think anyone would buy it. Try the LRP reverse. has a 16 turn limit and is 50 dollars. But it you don't want reverse get the duratrax streak. 12 turn limit for 40 bucks. If you're on spring break, find out if someone wants their car washed. You should get 5 dollars at the minimum. But the sprint cannot work with 17 turn motors. It may work for a while but if the esc doesn't have overheat protection, that esc will catch fire and you'll melt your chassis.

do you think that the sprint will work with a 20t stinger. Traxxas says its mod but I doubt that it is because my msc can handle it as long as I don't go forward and than stop it or go up a hill etc.

about the sprint, does it real;ly need the capacitors? I've tried to make the best of buying the esc and easter money, I've bought a p2k2 pro with a 22t and 23t pinion for the tl-01. Oh, btw I got my p2k2 pro for $28 NEW. If you would like to see where I got it click here

Your fathers a scrooge Go around your block and ask around, I'm sure you'll have some people bite, especially if you have oldies in your area.
