    Best Brushless Motor on a budget

    What is the cheapest brushless motor you can buy? Are they any good? Could someone please recommend a brushless SYSTEM with good performance and compatibility with LiPos? Thanks in advance

    Get the traxxas 3500 kv motor/esc combo. i dont know if ur LHS does this but my LHS i can take my XL5 and 12turn titan motor and trade it in for the brushless system and pay $135 instead of $170.

    Get a 2s lipo too!!!!

    For 135 you can get a sidewinder sct 3800Kv 1410 that has a lot more power and tuning option out the wazoo. And keep your brushed system and have an esc that can handle a 4 pole motor.

    No point in VXL system as there are much more capable and programmable systems out there.

    Any ESC can be waterproofed and it's not hard. Youtube is your friend for that.

    Tacon motors from HobbyPartz.com are very budget friendly and reliable as well. Look for a 3650 or 3660 of 3000-4000kv rating. Keep in mind the 3660 may come with a 5mm shaft, rendering your stock pinion useless unless you want to bore it out.

    The Sidewinder SV2/SCT can be had on ebay for as cheap as 30 bucks, a steal.

    Dynamite has a new waterproof 4 pole brushless system out for an okay price, but i havent read any reviews of it yet, so im not sure if they are any good. They come in 2800kv,3300kv and 4000kv combos.

    I don't know anything about that system either, but it sure looks like a good deal. Brushless, waterproof, 4-pole motor, and it's by a reputable name brand for way cheaper than systems with comparable features.

    You just missed out. I picked up a Sidewinder SCT 3800 system from castle in the black friday sale for $100. Or if you really want waterproof, just wait until the Castle waterproof systems come out. They should be out soon.
