    I havent gone brushless yet but I have been doing loads of homework on it, so anyone correct me if I am wrong. That motor listed has a max amp of 35 so you would need an esc that has at least 10-20% more amps to keep it from overheating. The LEOPARD V2 RC Sensorless Brushless Motor 60A ESC 1/10 should work. I have been looking into the combos that are available. If you buy the motor/esc combo it takes most of the guess work out. I am sure there are more qualified people on here to answer your question though as to what brand to get or stay away from. This is just what I have learned so far.
