Not nearly as good as a brushless, but perhaps a way to get the kid some run time at low cost without burning up every motor ya got.
yes i can do those things but i want to get away from brushed if possible and also run stock if possible. i guess i wont be able to do it with my mamba max so i am getting a tekin 632 and running 4 nickel cells when my boy drives it. i will just run mod if / when i race it.
