    The 3M combo, right?
    Not just the ESC?

    If it is the combo:

    7077 Gear cover/Hardware
    7090 Motor Plate
    7060 Motor Mount
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Yes 3m combo. Good thing I asked. Local hobby store owner said I don't need anything. He said Titan motor mount will work with the 3M motor.

    I used the titan motor mount coz I couldn't get the brushless motor mount, just used the slotted holes in the titan mount, just drilled round holes into the slots, had to run the pinion right on the end of the motor shaft to, doesn't run on all of the spur but have had no problems, been running like this for weeks. Will get the brushless mount eventually though.

    Did you have the old titan 380 or the new 550?

    and if you do go brushless make sure to shim the diffs or at least the rear because its a huge power boost and will make your diffs click.

    brushed isnt nearly as strong as brushless stkys, on 3s there it might compare to NiMH with brushless...
    how often do you wheelie on 3s?
    i run mine on 3S and with wheeilie bar adjusted for the lowest i can flip it no problem...
    also it depends on what tires you run and where you run

    I wrote 550 in response to post, mines 380 brushless, 28/50, wheelies on command at any speed, wheelie bar set at half way, just use throttle to control wheelie, can flip it over backwards no worries, got 2.2 wheels, grass to road, grass to road.
