    So I was thinking

    What would be the best motor for my pede besides the castle, which I am most likely getting anyways. I guess the question I have is, are there any motor/esc combo that is very comparable but cheaper to the sct max pro 2400? I was looking at a Venom 4200k but read the esc sucks. Agian just curious maybe get one as a back up or something to the castle.

    Leopard makes nice motors. Cheaper, but I'm not sure about the difference in quality compared to the Castle ones.
    I see that Orion has waterproof ESCs which are not too bad of which I wonder how they will work.

    I was looking into the Leopard and they say they're fast, but they're not waterproof so not for me.

    yeah I need waterproof as well, I was looking up tenshock sc401 motor and it looks very promising one of the comparisons to castle said it was faster and had more torque with a graph to show the difference it was from ultimaterc on youtube, now is it water proof I'll need to look that up.

    Castle isn't waterproof either, but the HPI vapor made by castle is waterproof

    Viper copperhead 4500kv is a good system for about $145. I have 2 of their systems and they work great. (one in my Rusty, one in my Sl2sh).

    My traxxas 2.4 tqi's don't seem to play well with other brand systems.

    Futaba 3pl's are selling for <$100 now.
