    WELCOME TO THE FORUM FELIPE :)
    Castle creations sidewinder 3 waterproof is my go to esc..you will also have to get the castle field link programmer if you are going to run brushed it is capable I lipos up to 3s and it's waterproof and if you ever chose to go brushless you can and don't have to buy a new esc when you chose to run brushless

    No problem. It is kind of pricey at $60 but it's worth it hope someone pitches in with a better option soon :),

    Yeah its 120 including the motor here it is for just the esc $67
    TowerHobbies.com | Castle Creations 1/10 Sidewinder 3 Waterproof ESC
    And you will need this programmer to set it to brushed mode
    Castle Creations "Car" Field Link Programmer [CSE010-0063-00] | RC Cars & Trucks - A Main Hobbies
    It if you have a hobby shop close they might let you use their programmer for free

    The sidewinder 3 is one of the best bang for your buck esc.

    Will do brushed and brushless.

    Is waterproof.

    Will run NiMh and LiPo packs.

    For around 60 bucks its also one of the cheapest esc worth buying.
