I've been dead set on getting a Tacon motor and Hobbywing ESC combo for a while now but the Tacon motors do not seem to be in stock anywhere anymore and the people I've spoken to have no idea when replacements are coming back in.
So I need another combo. I dont need massive power or speed and I dont need a huge bill! I do need something for bashing that is reliable, smooth and will survive a 4 year old.
MY LHS suggested the following:
SCT Castle combo $159
SV2 + Racers Edge 3600KV $125
Stock Velineon ESC and motor $200
Mamba Pro combo $259
They did not like my suggestion of a Hobby wing ESC and motor. They said the motors are fine but the ESC's are junk. Is this true?
I really like this http://www.hobbypartz.com/car.html for the price but I was steered towards the $125 combo above instead.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
