    Swap from 2.5 to electric.

    I have a sport 2.5 and I'm looking to get away from nitro. I'm sick and tired of not just being able to run and have fun. I'm going to electric. I'm doing this with all my nitro slowly but surely. With the sport what size of motor and ESC should I go with. This on is my teenage daughters. It don't need to have crazy power.

    Don't have an answer as I'm a nitro guy. So I was asking if your 2.5 might be for sale?

    I may have 1 maybe even 2 for sale. I have a used 2.5 that's in the car now and another 2.5 that is brand new never even broke in. I'm not real sure what I'm going to do yet. I also may have a 3.3 uses also.

    you might try buying either the xl5 with lvd and titan with a lipo battery, or the velineon system with a nimh battery. depends on how fast you want to go.

    do you want a brushed or brushless system?......a XL5 ESC/Titan 12T motor are brushed combo. i would look into VXL3s with 3500 velineon motor to start with if you want to go with the brushless system. VXL3s runs with 2s or 3s lipo.....not sure with the XL5 though....never tried plugging one on mine when i had it.

    Depending on the trade. I may be interested in trading my nitro motors all or part. I have other nitro parts I'm not going to need for electric. I have a running used 2.5. A brand new never been started 2.5. A used 3.3 running. A used 3.3 that needs a piston, and sleeve. All have carbs and are in good shape.

    I'm looking to trade for a motor and ESC combo that can handle lipo for a traxxas sport. Or a motor ESC combo for a revo. Or some lipo batteries.

    Appears there is a lot of trading going on here which should be done in the Market Place. This thread has derailed as the OP's intent is recommendations for an ESC and motor.
