electronics advice

hey guys rebuilding an MK1 and as i look through these pages im getting more motivated to get it running rather than leave it a static model.anyway i put HOR plastics on it and will use an HOR rider so im not worried about scratching it.it came with all the vintage kyosho hop ups including the dm20 motor and the vintage kyosho electrics.should i run as is?or can anyone recommend a good brushless system?

EZ Run brushless systems are good , you want something like a

18A ESC+18T/5200Kv motor

Hey pal... Yeah pretty sure that's all you'll need, just keep in mind they are quite slow standard, even with the faster motor... And the run time is relatively short aswell... And unless the bike is fully ball raced it may cut out alot due to over heating the esc... At least mine was with the 600mAmp batteries... If you have the coin, the brushless system really is the way to go... It also gives you the option of tuning the power delivery, and braking set up too... And they're also lipo friendly...

Just keep in mind with your rider options there... The HOR won't fit on the MK1 chassis without a fair few mods... I have a comple chassis set up with rider controls if you want it..?
