    The only problems I had out of it were that the screws eventually strip due to the softer plastic, and the a-arm mount holes would wear and get a bit loose. Flex was never an issue on mine, and I ran...

    Definitely tires. Wheel holes allow for venting, but not easy water removal. Holing the tires will let the water spin out, and won't affect the tire's integrity if done right.

    I ran a Tacon sensored 2650kv motor on 3S lipo to achieve just that. It worked great. Dual 3s lipos in parallel gave some awesome runtimes too.

    Brushed or brushless?

    Be careful with liquid tape. It insulates, so the ESC will keep more heat inside.

    Corrosion X does not insulate. Get a bottle, take the case off your ESC, and dunk it in the corrosion x. Let it...

    The sidewinder sct 3800 combo includes the fan for the sidewinder, which helps a lot. It'll run 2s fine all day, and 3s for a while, as long as it's geared properly. I wouldn't run 3s all the time...

    As long as it's a 2-pole, 540-size motor, then yes. Temps will only stay down on the ESC if you gear it very conservatively.

    Brushed Motor Suggestion

    I don't think the Titan 775 drops right into the emaxx. It hits the side of the transmission, if I remember correctly. Also, the motor mount holes on the 775 are spaced for 4mm, and the emaxx mounts...

    +1 go ahead and upgrade to the MMP/2400. If you want waterproof, consider the sidewinder 8th system. It'd be a little bit of work to get that system to fit in, but it would.

    That's why I'm not assuming that the new 4-pole motor will be any more powerful than the 2-pole. The upgrade may be because the supplier can now produce more bulk 4-pole motors cheaper than 2-poles....
