Default Power

Whats everyone using for power in vintage and re-release cars? It seems most people say to only use the stock silver can in tamiya cars. Why is that? Can they not take even a mild brushless motor? (17.5, 21.5?) What about the kyosho cars? it seems like they can handle more power. Lastly the schumacher car coming out. Anyone know what they will use in that car? I have re worlds car, it has many, many runs on it with a 8.5 and zero problems. I also have the re kyosho tomahawk, turbo scorpion and optima. all un-built. and more tamiya re-releases then i care to admit. also not built. more money then time i guess. Anyway, id love to hear what people have done and why. Love the re-releases and hope they keep coming

Depends on the car. A lot of older cars have a pretty narrow range of available gear ratios and you won't be able to get anywhere near the gearing you would need for a 21.5 or something to run well. Others that's not such a problem and should be fine if done right.
