    motor esc upgrade choices?

    I am about to purchase a KB fiesta. Does this Vilenion system overheat easily like the larger systems? I'm wondering if I should just buy a roller and get a different esc/motor combo. Has anyone use a hobbywing combo in these cars? What size esc/motor would be good?

    I've never had an overheat issue with my 1/10 Velineons. Then again, I run them all mostly stock on 2S power. I guess it all comes down to gearing...

    Upgrade the ESC to a Castle Sidewinder/SCT and mount it in the battery "box"

    Get 4mm connectors and put those on the motor. OR Great Planes sells a 3.5mm-4mm adapter.

    Some Leopard systems fit. But are not waterproof. Choice is up to you.
    Everything overpowered...
