Go brushless, best advice I can give you. My biggest mistake was to buy the brushed revo, my second biggest mistake was to try and fix the problem with another brushed motor. If you're going to run lipos (and you are trust me), brushless is the only thing that'll hold up (in my experience).
question/favor.... i just bought my summit from a member on here and the performance is just...not what others are describing..... and completely different from what i see with dwalt+lipos... I dont know if i feel comfortable/confident enough to take on such a project so soon (basically my first RC). Was hoping nothing major like this would be needed till i got more comfortable working on and more familiar with the summit.
anyway, i think i'll need to replace my motor and love what ive seen with the 14.4dewalt!
so my question: how much were all parts needed for the dewalt? and favor: would you be willing to do the modifications for me? so that all I'd really have to do is drop it in and mount it?? if so, how much?
I completely understand if you're not up to doing it. just thought it wouldnt hurt to ask. I think Im going to post a video (sunday hopefully) to see what others think could be my prob for poor performance.
