The brushed ESC can't handle 2s lipo.
I bought a pair of traxxas 2s2200 lipo to run in parallel for long run times and on the first or second wheelie the ESC smoked.
Also, the stock brushed ESC doesn't have lipo cutoff.

Go with the xl5 if you want to stick with brushed motor.

I prefer brushed or sensored brushless in a truck like this.
Good luck.
