    Alternative ESC / Motor install in KB VXL

    Hi everyone, not sure if this has been requested before but is it actually possible to enhance the Ken Block by installing a different larger motor and the ESC??

    Appreciate anyone's input. Thanks

    On my summit/slash/rally I have a trinity 8t 540 4650 I believe and a mmp. they are both 1/10th systems. My mamba is one of the first ever ones and its my morst reliable esc. The larger motor seems to make it want to flip more, and add that with a go pro and your rolling. I like it better then stock because its more torque, but also runs cooler.

    Absolutely! You're already setup for a 540 size brushed. You can put anything you can get to fit in there!

    Just finished my summit to rally conversion. It's mostly stock except for the Hobbywing 4650kv brushless system. Runs a 540 size motor like yours. It's a rocket!
