    I suggest the Castle Creations 2400 motor system! I have it in both of my trucks and am extremely happy with it! I have had lots of problems with the VXL systems but I have been completely satisfied with the combination of the Castle Creations Mamba Max Pro and the four pole 2400 kv motor.

    Yes, it will run 4s but I have read that it is almost uncontrollable. My new system should be here Tuesday and I plan on running 3 and 4s through it

    Price range?
    I just replaced my stock set up with a Hobby Wing 3400kv motor and waterproof ESC set up for less than $125, and am very happy. It's no castle, but great bang for the buck.

    Jason, it is very controllable, you have to use a bit of throttle finesse. If you are out to do full throttle take offs, then you are going to habe a hard time keeping control of your truck. If you roll onto the throttle at a consistent rate, you will be very impressed with its performance. I run one of my tricks geared 22/50 which has gotted me 79.79 mph with the 2400 and a Vemon 4s 5000mah lipo.
    Briandee, believe it or not, you could've gotten the 2400 combo from the Traxxas funny car for the same price on eBay!
