    So I got a Velineon 3500 and the VXL3s esc. I was planning to use it in my brushed stamped but I got to thinking; "To big block or not to big block?" It seems that plenty of guys have done it. Is there a major con to this idea beside more broken parts? I would like to here some of your opinions on what you think.

    This has been done before with that exact motor...
    Try searching so you can (hopefully) get a hold of the member that has done it.

    I toyed with the idea for quite a while, then decided not to.
    More than enough power can be extracted from a 380 sized motor.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    I coudn't even fathom more weight up high in a 1/16 slash. but in a summit, might be good.

    true the 380 produces a ton of power, I just think it's undersized for the truck still... I always had heat issues with mine on stock gearing and 2s... only got worse when I geared it up, and I finally killed it with 25/45 gearing so it's sitting on a shelf beside me here and will be getting a BB swap in the near future, probably the current system in my Slash 4wd after I do a BB swap in it and put a 1/8th system in it, lol
