Hello! Hope everyone's having a good Thanksgiving. I wish I'd had the whole week off, myself, because work really stank, and I only got Thanksgiving Day off. I'm sure many others have it worse.
Well, I have a Monster Jam Son-uva Digger, which I bought in August (2013), and have run it mostly stock, apart from alum castor blocks, bearings, T-Bone wheelie bar, and 2S LiPo. My Titan 12T has provided some great enjoyment, and is still alive n' kickin', but I'm getting bored of the weak performance, especially since I've been getting used to running a 1/14 Vaterra Kalahari (brushless), easily over 35mph. I don't necessarily want constant speed runs out of my SOD, but I do crave some punch n' go action.
I've been researching intensely for the past week or two, and have narrowed my choices down to either the Hobbywing EZRUN Combo WP-SC8 ESC + 3650 3400KV motor, or the same WP-SC8 ESC + Vicious Tek Pirahna 4-Pole 3300KV motor. They both tie in around the same price, and each one would blend well with the black/blue Son-uva Digger color theme. I can't really find much info to push me one way or the other, except that I've read in one thread that the EZRUN ran hotter than most, but I think that guy was running a 4300KV, whereas I plan to keep mine ≤ 3500KV. I've read a few positive threads on the Vicious Pirahna4, but I can't find any decent videos on either one. If no one cares to remark, I won't be offended. I just thought I'd share my frustrations of virtual shopping, where you often can't see, feel, or hear the object you desire to purchase.
Whatever I do eventually get, I will record a video and post it on my YouTube channel, so that others will benefit from my lack.
