I have had really bad luck with the stock vxl esc and am currently having a new one replaced as we speak. I heard of people putting the sidewinder escs in there merv to get more power. I am wondering what the amp peak and current are on this esc and if this is a real upgrade. If so, what will I have to do to make it work with my merv? Also I am also looking for motors, what is a good motor with this esc. I don't know if a losi flux motor or a ezrun motor. Thanks.
