Ok, so it's time to get back into RC. I already know what I want to buy of on road, and used them before, that would be an Associated product. But the closest I got to any 4x4 trail would be a Tamiya Lunch Box....stop laughing, It would run circles around your $9000 rig and I drove it in the Baja 1000..... ok..so it wouldn't, and I didn't.. lmao So I have a few questions: 1) What would a recommendation be for a good 4x4 that parts are redily availble for and is some what durable without breaking the bank. Keep in mind for this question, I am going to be BUYING USED for sure. I NEVER keep any of the stock parts and only built one stock rig from the box (Associated RC10), and by the third week of owning only to pull all that I could replace with aftermarket more durable parts. 2) With this question also, keep in mind I am in the states, so services would have to be down here,so without having to pay some incredible tax to get it over the border. Does anyone know of any other places to find used vehicles, other than my local shops (which I plan to hit) and Ebay? 3)Techi question; When it comes to mount points , what is the difference between a regular , or a mod motor, and a brush-less motor? I use to run a Reedy 13 T crazy a** motor in my rc 10 for the modifieds regulation so I know about them a lot and they take a huge amount of maintenance after each run. Now I just want to know abount mounting differences. 4) If the mounting is different does it take much to modify, or get a modified motor mount? 5) Is there much maintenance with a brush-less motor? 6) Ok. again, dont laugh, I believe the last time I ran my RC10 I think I was running a 6 cell 1900 mah, anyone have a recommended site, or the knowledge to just tell me the advances in batteries since 1990? I think that is it for my questions so far, just recommended unit, difference in motors, and updating me on batteries. If I posted this in the wrong spot, I'm sorry I didnt really find a noob question area so I went to the Trails area.
