    Not Sure where to Post this.. Kyle Busch VXL vs. Orig. T-Maxx .15

    Hi, just watched a video of the Kyle Busch truck with a Velineon® 380 Brushless motor in it.. That thing was flying for being electric.
    I haven't had much experience with either Nitro or Electric.. All I have ever owned is a Orig. T-maxx with the .15 engine and bought my daughter the electric Rustler way back in 2000 or 2001

    Just looking for opinions on weather you think the new Brushless motors are faster than my old nitro Pro .15 ?
    Thanks!

    brushless motors are a LOT faster then most nitros. i have a mini e revo and LOVE it cause it does 50+ thats faster then a lot of the nitros plus brushless is sometimes cheaper in the short run and a lot cheaper in the long run cause you don't have to keep constantly buying nirto gas

    How much did you pay for the mini E-Revo ? Are there 2 of them? A 2 wheel drive and a 4 wheel drive?

    the power option is just Brushed or Brushless. All the 1/16 cars are 4wd.

    Not true, the Grave digger 1/16th is 2wd.
    Any brushless motor is going to be way faster than your .15. Maybe even by two or three times if you've got a big one with lipos.
    Now, if you had a 3.3 engine, that would give the vxl 3500 a run for its money.

    My mistake, didn't pay much attention to the GD when it came out. thought it was on a pede chassis.

    Looks like it is just the same chassis and everything just w/o a front diff and drive shafts installed?

    That's the 1/10 scale ERBE

    The 1/16 VXL MERV is like $325-350 new at the LHS' around here.

    the erbe is a great truck even thou its around 700-800. if your looking to buy a new truck billinindiana i would start out with the merv, then when you get enough experience with it you could go all out and get a erbe. i would love to get one but moneys tight these days and the parts for it are probably more then the parts for the merv.

    To compare the capabilities of the MERV vs the ERBE is a little off.

    A better "get this than that" would be buy a Brushed E-Revo and then upgrade to the Brushless system once comfortable with it.

    There is so much the MERV just cant do its big brother can, given the size difference.
