    I would go for the Castle without doubt - it runs much cooler, give longer run times, the ESC has more programmability, it doesn't have a button that will get stuck one day and is ultimately the more...

    The 3800 motor does really need lipo power but, as i said in my post #4 above, if you gear low (say FDR>13) and limit the torque to Level 6.0 max (which limits amp draw) you should be able to run it...

    That combo can happily power a 4x4 SCT so would have no problem at all in your application. As always, keep the gearing sensible and it'll be fine.

    I would also go brushless before going lipo but be careful with the SV3 systems as they are really designed for lipo only. They pull a lot of amps (esp the larger 1410 3800 motor) so if you go that...

    For pretty much all electronics lower operating temps equals longer, happier lives. Lower than 160F would be better in that sense but it's considered to be a safe maximum to prolong the life of the...

    It really depends on your budget, but buy the best you can afford. Spec-wise, make sure it has an internal balancer (most do), a storage charge function, adjustable charge rate and (so you don't...

    A Rustler is both lighter and more aerodynamic than a Slash and all other things being equal will always be the faster truck. But your motors are not equal of course.

    No but they do benefit from being left at a "storage voltage" (typically 3.80v per cell) when not in use. All quality chargers will have a special storage function which will either discharge or...

    The CC 3800 motor is appreciably more powerful than the Velineon but there's not a night and day performance difference. If you want a step change in performance, either bump up to 3S with a 3800 or...

    Just be aware that this version of the 1410 motor has the 5mm shaft and you'll need new pinions.

    Many 5mm pinions are for 32P pinions so it would be a great time for you to do the AE Slipper...
