Did you check the FAQ already?

Nice to know there are more options if a more smooth throttle response, also in the lower revs area, is needed.

Silly as it sounds at first, you may want to consider a brushed setup. You get the same exceptional slow speed characteristics as a sensored brushless setup, but at a much cheaper price. Brushed motors are waterproof by nature too. There's a reason most rock crawlers use brushed systems...

Not a silly idea, but the 45A HK ESC and apparently the 30A as well, also offer excellent low rev control, almost as good as sensored.

Hello,
I buyed this truck for my child, but often I use this beautiful mini truck

With a 2S the truck is very funny; but I tried the 3S lipo on stock setup ... and it is a drug

But I noticed that after 2-3 min of running (not full speed and with many stops) the motor and ESC became very hot.
Does anyone tried whit a 3S lipo?

I am planning also to change the ESC and motor with this 2:
HK B2040 Motor
HK 45A ESC
but I am not sure it could help to use 3S setup without burning the motor (for the ESC I think there is no problem, but the motor?)

3 cell is too much for this car if you want it to last, not only the motor and ESC but gearing differential etc will wear out faster.
Stick to 2 cell and have time to cool down between sessions.
