    Opinions?

    My velineon motor is dead. I can send it in for $40 to replace it. But the problem is, i was going to sell my velineon combo to get money towards the castle combo 2400kv. So should i spend the 40 bucks to replace the motor and then sell the combo? i need opinions. Becasue if i keep the combo ill need to save up about 200 bucks.But if i sell the velineon combo for say 100 bucks, ill only have to save up 100 bucks.
    need opinions.

    Traxxas is out of stock on the VXL motor right now. So you can save up and maybe by the time you are close you can send the motor in. Right now it will be sitting at the Traxxas plant until they get more motors in.

    Got notification that mine got shipped yesterday and on its way back to me. Guess I will have a spare motor or might end up selling it. Send yours in now to get into the queue should they be limited on stock. I would just get the 2400 if you can afford it now and figure out the stock motor later

    I would say if it's only $40 to have it replaced and it can be sold for over $100, then do it. Or at least keep it as a spare to your castle.
