I haven't gone through the whole thread yet, but maybe someone knows right off what it might take to upgrade to some inexpensive hobbyking brushless setup? Can the stock brick support a micro brushless ESC, and if so which ones have people had success with?
The Stock Brick won't support an external ESC directly. You need to switch to an AR6400 for that.
The "inexpensive hobby king brushless setups" are actually more expesnsive and less powerful than simply adding a Mustang motor, unless you convert to 2S.
