Hey guys and gals .. I had some questions and such and after 3 hours of google melting my brain I figured I would just ask and be done with it lol . So I have been a fan of rc for years but just recently broke out my xl5 pede and got back into it.. shortly after (meaning a matter of hours) I stripped my idler gear in the tranny lol .. when I went to see about a replacement my little brother went with me and talked me into buying him a xl5 rustler ..and now im wanting a new truck lol .. I dont race or anything just bash around and have fun .. I was excited for an emaxx but have realized it wont fit the bill for my needs amd desires so now im leaning to the 4x4 pede :-) I have poked around on here and noticed alot of velineon issues seems alot come from the wrong batterys ..but I want to ensure its as reliable as possible as I only have 3 days a month at home to play (career truck driver) .so that has got me thinking about a motor and esc replacement next month (then I could toss the velineon system on my brothers rustler) . I never plan to use more than a 2s but would like to be able to still use the nimh packs I just bought aswell .. I dont need ridiculous speed (a little faster than my stock xl5 on a 7 cell nimh would be plenty) I would rather enjoy longer run times though and I dont want to be concerned with heat. I was looking at the castle sidewinder3 esc and the 1410 3800kv ..would this fit my needs ? I would really like to stay waterproof so I can play in less than desirable conditions due to my limited time to play. So could the 3800kv and sw3 be my ticket? And is the velineon decent on nimh batteries untill I can get our stocks of 2s packs up? And the C rating on said 2s packs what should I shoot for to use on both systems? Thanks in advance .. happy wheeling!
