    Well i junked the motor on the slash and decided if im gonna buy a new one i might as well go big. What is the best motor that is quick under say $30? i have small budget because i want a SCX10. im ordering a body and tires tonight.

    do you want a brushed motor or brushless because I'm not 100 percent sure you can get a brushless motor for under 30 but the hip 15 turn motor is pretty quick but its a brushed

    Thanks didn't know that. Have the motor installed. The thing really eats now. Will the xl5 esc run a lipo? I've heard it will. If so what's the preferred lipo?

    https://vimeo.com/103076612 Filmed with about quarter charge left in the battery. I'm thinking LiPO now. What is the best for like $35-40
