This is so true!

Though they are the future, until a truly front line speed control can be miniaturized to the scale allowing for a full range of proper adjustments so you can gain worthwhile braking ability I don't think the future has arrived yet. A box stock brushed Z is an incredible handful as it is. It provides more speed than you can deal with as a rookie while providing a fair amount of durability. Add to that even the bottom tier brushed motor like the PN70T and it becomes nearly un drivable in the same hands. Since the inception of the VE series the big concern has been some sort of parity with the older brushed models. In my opinion the right thing to have done would have been to keep the brushed and brushless chassis in separate classes so to speak allowing for brushless development while not diluting the brushed category. Time and natural progression would have taken place to an all brushless venue. What we have now is a small niche market being overpowered by aftermarket chassis from a myriad of manufacturers that the masses lump into the group as mini-Z's which they definitely are not. Their intrusion has further escalated the quest for terminal velocity and the achievement of the "vanishing point". Here in the US some of the best venues have fallen on hard times or have given up completely because they were unwilling or unable to take the needed steps to keep the true Z's racing as the base class while promoting the VE and aftermarket offerings as the "mod" class.

As far as the motor pod goes, If PN it would be the 98-102 LCG V4 only. No 93, 94, gimbaled or otherwise. Just meat and potatoes thank you but that throws you into the trap of more powerful VE motors which are not necessary. If you wish to go down the VE road with some semblance of sanity then you stick with what Kyosho offers which are high quality albeit pricier aluminum motor pods that accept the non screw mount motors offered by Kyosho but will also accept the ridiculously powerful aftermarket offerings so you can see what else is under the furniture while you seek out your errant missile.

My suggestions to you would be, before spending a dime on anything more than fuel to get you to the track, get in contact with the local group and sit down with them to see what their program supports then act accordingly.
Duly noted. I will definitely go check out the local club first before I make my next move. Thank you for your advice.
