    If you want an inexpensive Velineon equivalent than check out the tacon 10T 3650. It is a great motor under $30. Just seal the bearings with electrical tape and your good to go.

    They did a great job but the short wheel base required to fit a slash makes it look a little cartoon like. Guess fastbacks look a bit better.
