    Assuming you mean the gold colored ESC / Motor combos

    They are a copy of the popular Hobbywing SC8 ESC and Tenshock SC401 motor, and offer great bang for buck

    None of the motors are suitable for running 3s lipos, they are designed for 2s use

    the 2400 is a great motor. IMO the 2400 is what this truck needs to get it rollin' the way it should

    I have run a few 3s packs through my Toro 4000kv motor without any problems at all. The highest temp I have seen to date is 120*. This thing is a total monster on 3s geared a conservitive 14-50. We have a 4600 on the way, but I would not try and run 3s through that one. Huge bang for the buck with these motor ESC combo's, I like it better than the Tenshock because of the larger bearings in the TORO.
