    Id suggest sticking with the plastic one. You can buy 3 plastic ones for the price of a metal one and if setup correctly you'll never wear or strip the 32p plastic spur (I've had trucks like yours as...

    A sensored motor is amazing if you need ultimate smoothness in power delivery, especially at low speeds. So, if you were racing and wanted to have perfect control when exiting a corner... that would...
