The Novak brushless system would be a good choice for bashing, and with an emerging class popping up at tracks across the country, it may be able to be raced soon(?). A friend of mine mentioned to me yesterday that after 15 minutes of running in his Losi XXX Kinwald buggy, that he could still pull wheelies in front of his house and that the car only started to noticeably slow down after 18 minutes.

Low maintenence and longer run times. Perfect for bashing.

However, if you think racing's in your future, you might want to reconsider. If you can't run your brushless at your local tracks, then you'll need another ESC and motor.

FT TC3.

Awesome durability, and stupid fast.

Depending on what your situation is, I would look into a trinity MOnster stock Pro motor.

A bud of mine has that motor in his yokomo, and on a 6cell battery pack, he hits well over 35mph, and he is geared very low.

Just remember, motor maintence can play a huge part in speed.

He has cut the commutator on his 4 times, and since he initilally got the motor, he has gained 6mph from this.(The added speed may also be a atrributed to the motor simply breaking itself in)


Hope i shed some light.

LMAO....everyone MISSED his points. He wants A BASHING CAR which is:
1.CHEAP
2.UPGRADEABLE
3.CAN BE COMPETITIVE

if cheap is your quest. Go with Tamiya...you could never go wrong. On standard setup...all you need just a standard servo and full set of ball bearings (car cost approx. $80-100 depending on stores) and a host of upgrade parts are waiting for your. Hobby people has two models (350Z and Impreza '03) for 80 bucks a pop: http://www.hobbypeople.net/prdcls/caraac01.asp

You can also get Trinity new T-spec...full loaded for about 110 bucks from Trinity or 150 bucks you get spec motors and spec battery (great for bashing by the way). Here is the link for T spec: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXGVU5&P=0

Get Mtroniks ESC for bashing ESC. For about 40-50 dollars you can have an ESC that can handle 12 Turns easy.
http://www.hobbypeople.net/prdcls/caascfr01.asp

For motor, if you're really in a budget...find someone who can get you Tower Hobbies 14T Speed Secret for about 20 bucks: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXJA78&P=0

That should be good enough for starters or you can get Trinity Caliber for $18-20 a pop...and it's available from 10T-16T: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXAPY9&P=0 , http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXAPZ0&P=0 , http://www.hobbypeople.net/gallery/839722.asp, http://www.hobbypeople.net/gallery/839724.asp

Both have dual ball bearings but Trinty have non-adjustable 24degree locked endbell compared to adjustable timing on the Tower motor.
