My 8 y.o. son and I are both complete noobs to this but we love it. We have had the rustler for about 3 days now. I have read about 9 billion forums in that time and I still dont have a clear answer. I am not interested at all about going to brushless or changing any gears, batteries or ESC's ..its plenty fast for him right now. If he continues to like this hobby I will go that route but for now I just need a good motor. My question is What is a good brushed motor to replace the stock motor (which we all know doesn't last) in the rustler with? What size motor (17t, 18t,20t?) can I go to without changing gears, batteries, ESC's? We can handle a bit more speed or torque but nothing insane. Thanks in advance to everyone...any advice is greatly, greatly appreciated.
