Sort of took your advise and got myself a MMP esc....
But I remember reading somehwere in forums that MMP is only 65amp constant and a 100amp burst so I never really saw the point of buying one when 120 amp esc's are like half the price. but got one anyways only because i got lucky and got one used for a good price.
Now as far as the motor goes I'm thinking about a few setups...
1 - Either run a Castle Creations CM36 9000kv 3s capable motor with regular gearing and run it on 3s (youtube has some videos people getting over 80mph easy on street cars and a t4 truck). I dont want to deal with heat and letting it cool down and stuff. I mean if a motor is 9000kv and it IS 3s capable pushing 80mph with stock gearing why will it over heat after a pass or two? I'm not pushing its limits or anything.
2 - Or get a Tacon 4074 (2000 - 2100kv) or a 4465 (2400 - 2600kv) 1/8th scale motor and gear it to the sky! both are 5s capable. (I still have to make sure these motors will fit in a rustler....i'm sure they will i'll b running a much smaller spur gear from another vehicle...some guy on youtube revealed the setup in his rustler and Im gonna try do same. kind of a how to video).
I'm also picking up some foam tires.
What you guys think?
