I'll be interested to see how this works out! it's always nice to see people trying the "alternatives" that other people just consider to be useless since it's less expensive. I stand by my $25 Tacon motor in my mini
what's the KV on that guy?
its a 5.5 I didn't know better before buying. However given the gearing options + tires available I don't see it as an issue, other than needing a huge esc lol
Oh yea its 6100k.
alot of people have been going with the boat esc and motors for their traxxas blast boat, and they work great, if my stock stuff ever craps out im going to try hobby kings stuff too

take pictures of the build
yea for sure I will,
The 540 mount & other stuff is at the post office for me to pick up.
I placed another order to get (the last) T-bone skid plate & a Bug body so the huge ESC will fit.
I will post a build of this once that order comes in probably not for a bit.
Some other member was looking for my opinion of the HR mount, which I'll do in the next couple days.
Im excited to hear about the HR mount. I regret every HR product i have bought soo far except the shock bodies. But the mount looks good!
Im sure this is a NooB question but what is the thing that looks like a battery attached to the ESC? Some kind of capacitor?
Looks like it but thats a huge capacitor.
What does the ESC need the capacitor for? To lessen voltage drops when under load?
