    Question Brushed 1/16 Ford Fiesta worth the time?

    Thinking about getting the 1/16 Ford Fiesta its brushed, so is it worth the money or just pay the extra for a vxl 1/16 rally?

    I'd be buying it, but thats just me. I'd also eventually put in a sv2, or sv3 with a 4600-5700kv castle combo since the brushed model has the big block type motor mount. I had one with a 5700kv motor/sv2 esc. It was so fun on 2s lipo.
    I'm not krazy. My mother had me tested.

    I guess it depends on what you're looking for. The brushed version won't be as fast as the brushless version, but it would be a great vehicle to learn on. It would also be a great vehicle to play with if you're not looking for all-out speed, but rather to just enjoy driving.

    Personally, I'd probably start off with the brushed version and upgrade as I go. For me, upgrading and working on the vehicle is half the fun of this hobby. Buying the brushed version would give me more to work on in the future.

    My daughter had one and it was a blast.
    My opinion...the rally body is ugly as sin...but I like the fiesta body.
