    If your main aim is to go fast I would buy a lower KV longer can motor and gear it up and volt it up. Those 1406 series motors are great but are very small and you'll always be fighting heat in high...

    At the OP's $40 price point I would definitely be looking at getting a Hitec servo. I've found them to be very reliable and durable. Not really a Savox fan due to their noise and inefficiency (but I...

    The OP's only after an ESC, not a combo or motor. He meant to say VXL-3S instead of Velineon.

    For that money I'd get a Hobbywing SC8-WP. It's 4S and 4-pole capable, programmable and waterproof...

    It's a battery's discharge rating. The c number reflects how many times an hour a battery could dischrage its capacity. So all other things being equal, a higher c number = faster discharge = more...

    By all means try it, but I don't see how adding extra weight to a HCG chassis is going to help you. That weight will be "riding high" wherever you put it and won't really lower the CoG.

    Really? I was about to buy one of these trannys for my LCG race Slash but you've given me some concerns. I want a proper aluminium motor mount but without the weight of a full alumnium box.

    +1 on removing those switches. I also put a blob of solder on the twisted wires just to be sure and zip it all up with a small piece of heatshrink.
