    Brushless and lipo questions.

    I want to go brushless and want to get some opinions. Which is the best setup? Ez run 35 amp esc w/ 4300kv 9t motor or a 3500kv VXL? Which would be better for a slash? I also have a rustler i might throw it in as well sometimes.

    As for lipos and chargers, what are your favorites? I was looking at a thunder ac6 charger and some ******* 2s 5400mah lipos on HK.

    ^motor/esc^ scroll down the p[age there is a 60 amp esc and motor combo you will like for $99 and a 80 amp setup that will blow your mind for $135( get the 7xl motor, and order some pinions, the motor is a lower kv motor so be ready to gear highly, I would start with 26/82 and see what kind of temps you get
    don't get the 35 amp ESC, it will be to small and you will not be happy

    I am running his 9l motor on my 4x4 and it is INSANE, on a 2wd you will need a bit more gearing, but watch your temp, I am just guessing on the gears, Dan ( the guy that runs Kershaw) can help you with the right choice.

    on the 4x4 I am limited on motor length so I could not use the "XL" series motor but on a 2wd you have plenty of room
