im lookin at getting a new ride but cant decide between brushed or vxl. i have several 550 already for spare parts. im not a big fan of the brushed 550 but in a 1/16 car it should do very well and have good speed and power. what kind of speeds do the 550's have vs the vxl's?? what are u running and why do u like it? need some specs on each. thanks for the help!!
