    Yeah I've been wondering if the lipo would make it snappier before going brushless. This is my first elec in 15 years and I've been pretty happy with it. I love my nitro stuff but god is elec easy....just plug and play lol.

    You havent seen anything until you install a brushless sytem and a lipo. LOL Want an even more awesome brushless sytem try the Castle MMP & 3800kv motor, being 4-pole its was torquey. Opens up a whole new world of RC fun.

    BTW I still need to check out the video. Work blocks youtube. So i'll have to check it out when I get home. My little 4 yr old boy is running a MERV with a big block. Way fun.

    The MMP's currently arent, but they are just now releasing the Sidewinder 3 and Mamba Monster v.2 in waterproof. The versions before these are water resistant meaning they can take a splash just not submerged.

    I was looking at the mamba monster 2 but then i saw the price...so i want something withe the power, waterproof and low cost. I don't need something now but within the next year. I'm guessing there will be alot of waterproof systems coming out this year.
