Well, last week my Uncle got me a Slash as an gift( love to tell you from but just can't). This Slash is even more special for that reason. Out of the box this truck comes with something the others don't(yet). I ran the truck and just fell in love. So much in love I will be selling alot of my Rc cars(including my E-maxx). I at first wanted a cool looking basher with the ability to race mods. Well, I got to thinking and sometimes slow is just more fun then crazy fast. I'm building my Slash for the hiking trails. I'm looking forward to getting it hopped up. Buying a aluminium tranny case(Thankyou Dad for the FLM decision) and Traxxas big boreshock kit right off the bat.
Now lets talk motors. I'm kind of confused for the most part when it comes to this application. I understand Kv sensored/sensorless. I want alot of low-end torque(not a wheelie monster but a motor that doesn't bog down under load) but has some good amount of speed( like the stock titan). Should I go brush or brushless for this application? Should I go sensored or sensorless and if so which motor?
Just can't wait to get this project going.
