Default WTB Upgraded Motor & ESC for mini 8ight

Just picked up a used losi mini 8ight. Looking for a better motor and esc to drop in for more speed and power. I will only run 2 and 3s. Mainly 2s. Just looking for more speed and power. Something for me and my daughter to bash around. Lol.

Default Shim the diffs..

If you haven't done so already, make sure you shim both diffs before you run it on 3s. I blew 3 diffs that way before I figured out the problem.

I didn't know that! Where does it need to be shimed? Thanks.
