i can get brushless for my pede in 5 months (MM5700) or i can get a slash now. i like it how i can go mudding and stuff without any mods. BUT my pede is way too slow for me and it will be around the same speed as the slash so after a while i will probally want to get brushless. i also like it coz it looks nice and scale. and looks great! but if i get brushless then i cant go mudding! I DONT KNOW!
