    20c is not enough. Good batteries are the ******* 5000 hard case 40c. Same in 30c is o.k. too. The 40c are really good batteries and you have a local warehouse to order from.

    Just hope you are not one of those, down the road, who post and complains about the ESC going up in smoke or otherwise dying. Experience can be an expensive teacher.

    Go with the 5000 40c hard case. They are a great battery. 20c is to light for a large brushless system, work great for the VXL systems.

    Gear up to go faster, gear down = more torque and slower. Just the same as shifting up in a car to go fast, down to climb a hill. The higher the number the lower the speed. 2.0 = speed, 3.0 = torque.

    I think you need to look at the 2050 or 1800 motor. Will give better crawling speeds and plenty of speed. Go to the brushless E Revo side and search. Lots of discussion on the motors.
