    What should I do? up grade or stick with it

    Hey guys i recently when't lipo and After 6 or 7 runs my brushed motors are busted and I think I can save up the money to buy a castle mamba 2 esc and a mamba 2200kv motor. I have burned through 8-10 brushed motors and I bought it the year before last . So the mm2 with 2200kv is like $238 bucks. So the question is should I save my money (new truck?) and buy the 2 titans or buy a mamba monster 2 esc and a 2200kv bl motor? What would you do?

    Go to brushless. Do not pass GO, do not waste any more money on brushed. Go directly to brushless.

    IMO if i were u i would get a velenion vxl and run that thay can be had for cheap. and are wayyy faster then brushed. it will save u money i think castle even makes the velenion. am i right? but it should be enough for u for now. depending what u put it in pede/slash/ it will be more then fun no more busted motors for u and save a little loot.

    I just went brushless for $-120 shipped with a 150A ESC and 2100KV 4-pole. The thing RIPS!


    I would not recommend doing anything 1/10th scale on an EMaxx, the VXL motors and esc are to small.
