    Yeah I bought a slash with the Titan about three years ago, and after a year, I used the powerup plan and dropped the velineon system in, which has been running great for me for about two years now. I think you can get the vxl system for 130 or so with the powerup. I went to my lhs to make the switch instead of sending in to traxxas, so I'm not sure how much time it takes to send it to traxxas and get it back

    The price is good though, if you buy a ESC and motor off ebay it ends up being about 130-145 but this way you'll have traxxas support and does it come with warranty? Probably.

    A good idea, next big step would be a LIPO after this.

    Haha, i buy VXL setups off Craigslist for 100$ and then sell titan setups for 50$, 50$ for VXL is i think a good deal.

    You keep asking that question, do you live far from the city? send it to traxxas

    How does this power up program work? I never used the stock brushed motor or esc just swaped them out right off for a brushless system but if I can exchange them for a traxas brushless for not much money I will.
