    Can anyone tell me if I can use a traxxas brushless 380 motor and esc in a 1/18th scale car?? The team associated rc18R uses a 370 brushed motor so will a 380 velineon motor fit?

    I wouldent do that. The motor will most likely be under powered for a 1/10 scale car/truck also I don't think the motor holes would line up. Could be wrong but I definatly would not put a 1/18 motor and esc into a 1/10. The motor would over heat like crazy and most likely die lol.

    Hope this helps bud. I have a 1/10 VXL 3s motor and esc brand new in box for sale 120$ if you would like.
