    Suggestions on Brushless Motor upgrade! Slash 4x4

    I need some suggestions for an upgrade for my Brushless Motor! I have a new Slash 4x4 and need to get this car moving faster! What motor recommendations do you have? And if I change the motor does any other parts need to be replaced because of the new motor?

    The stock V380 motor is pretty stout... I would get a different, more robust ESC and start changing gearing to get more speed out of it... which would definitely not be the 3M ESC. Something with a 60 amp or greater rating.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    That is not sound advice.

    -- And I can just about gaurantee that 50 is NOT talking about the Mamba Micro Pro!

    The micro is a 18th scale ESC.
    The 3M is a 16th scale ESC.
    The 3M is marginal... works, but does not always hold up.
    So, how is a smaller scale ESC going to perform better??
