A Brushless system for HPI Sprint 2 Sport?


Q#1.Is this a decent BL system for HPI Sprint 2 Sport(http://www.hpiracing.com/kitinfo/708/) or too low quality? If it is not good enough, any BL system recommendation, please (If it is around $100, it will be ok.)

Here is the link fo the BL system.http://www.hobbypartz.com/26p-blcomb...9r-4370kv.html

Because the battery compartment of HPI Sprint 2 Sport only accepts 2-cell li-po in terms of the size, I am planning to use a 2 cell li-po 40C 5,000 mAh.

Q#2. For this battery, is the higher KV (4370KV) better or the lower KV (3000 KV) better? Or something between better?

Q#3. Could anyone give me an explanation about the relationship between "KV rate" & "the cell numbers of Li-Po", please?

Q#4. At this moment, I am using 2-cell li-po 20-30C 5000 mAh for my brushed HPI Sprint 2 Sport. Does it kill the brushed motor or not?

Thank you very much for your attention!

I would go with a higher KV motor for the onroad car if all you can run is 2s, Like 6000kv or more.

Q#4:The brushed motor will die on its own.The battery supplies just how much power the motor needs.

Does your brushed ESC have a lipo LVC?

Thank you very much for your responses!

There is no li-po lvc in the stock ESC, but I always check the voltage with a li-po voltage meter while running, so that I don't kill the li-pos

Any comments on the Leopard BL system? It is cheap, but I am wondering about the quality. But I should find out a higher kv BL system.

Your advices will be appreciated again! Thank you!

I've not heard much about the leopard system.The EZrun combos are said to be good.Just make sure you get ones with turns like 13.5,6.5 and so on.It should end in '.5'.
