    It would be a cool option. You might want to check out the rock crawler stuff, some of those have selectable 2wd to 4wd.

    The Havoc 3S should be out shortly which will handle 3S lipos.

    I've driven a friend's Slash with the current Havoc / 8.5 combo and it was more than enough for the Slash, at least for racing.

    I'd add it also depends on the fuel you use and the after run procedures and storage conditions. I've lost some engines to rust inside the motor from using WD40 in the after run procedure. These...

    Well after running the MaxAmps LV alarm I'd say it's marginal if you're running at a track. If I'm the only one on track I can hear it but if there are others forget it, it's not loud enough.
