    The motor can take 3s, and the speedo can take 3s with a weaker motor. It just can't handle the power that the motor would pull on 3s.

    However even on 2s it should be pretty decent, you'll be able...

    I got it from tower.

    Even if the motor was the same as the stock vxl, the controller is still a lot better. And with a Neu design I don't see how the motor won't be better.

    C rating is how much current a battery can supply, not run time.

    Runtimes vary wildly depending on many variables, but you are looking at 20-30 minutes generally.

    I don't know how low you are, maybe its enough. But you can use thicker shock oil, stiffer springs and/or shock spacers to help the front end out.

    I'll gear it to run 70mph on 4s, then turn the epa on my radio down to 50% so it will be like running 2s at 35mph.

    I have a vxl motor, 2 of them. And no matter how I gear it, it overheats on 3s. Its pretty ridiculous. I am going to put a medusa 60mm from my 1/8 buggy in it cuz I'm tired of this.
