    Currently torn between buying a Bomber kit next or an RC4WD scaler, if I go the Bomber route, what electrics are you guys running?
    I'm pretty experienced with RC but wondering if brushed would be okay, for some crawling and a little burst of speed when needed?
    I'm leaning towards brushed mainly for the slow crawl ability as I don't really want to shell out hundreds for high end sensored electrics.
    What do you guys run?

    Thanks for that, watching your AX-10 video shows how well it crawls, then the SCX10 shows the burst of speed.
    I was planning on running 3s, but I have a crap load of 2s packs and that seems to be enough.
    Hmmm, that's really tempting now!

    yea 2s is lots. that being said it run 3s. but you need to beef up the entire drive train if you do. hardened metal all around. My truck is due for a complete overhaul. ive worn everything out. lol its definitely served its time. lol

    Thanks for the input anyway man, I appreciate it.
    Kinda annoyed at the moment, spent over $400 in upgrades for my SCX10, put it all together and something is binding now even though nothing is visible lol, haven't even changed drivetrain parts.
    Eurghh, more trouble than it's worth, might revert it back to how it was!

    Does it spin freely with the motor out. Or one of the drive shafts off. Just narrow it down and find the bastard thats causing the issue. If its raised the angle on the shafts is the #1 cause if binding.
