Vantage David Spashett edition 12T would probably be too much ) and these motors do generate quite a lot of heat. I guess I'll just order a aluminium rear pod. BTW stupid questions, can TC shocks be used?
Yes, a TC shock can be used instead of the plastic one, use a fairly light spring on it, I run a Tamiya Red 13lb spring on mine.

I ran an Ezrun 13T in mine, softened the motor mount and damaged the spur gear after the motor had moved, now run a 27T brushed motor in it. The Sport Tuned will be fine, for the 16T you will need a big track to run it.
