    Motor and esc combo

    So I blew up 2 bearing in my motor today racing and the second one finished the motor off... So now i need a new motor but instead of spending the money on just buying another velenion 3500 I was thinking about just upgrading... I don't really want a castle but something that is fairly priced but has a lot of power... Must be comparable with 2s lipo... Thanks

    The new VXL 4 pole is a good choice, if you have a ESC that can run a 4 pole motor.

    Mmp/3800kv and gear up. Or svt/3800kv and save $70. But the mmp is capable for more motors and can handle up to 6s. Either are good combos. Both can be geared up to give you more speed but they will be relatively the same as the vxl with the same gearing. The motor is great on 2s and even better on 3s.
