    Yeah the sound is cogging, does seem a little more then normal in some of the videos. Every motor is different and I don't own that motor, so I'm not sure if that's a normal amount (probably), or if...

    I've seen direct drive done a couple years ago on an scx10, it was an outrunner like you're looking at, but it was a lower kv. Think it was only 600 or 800, but since you have portals and a ring and...

    Little advice on the esc, don't use 3s with that motor, it won't last. That motor probably pulls 80 or so amps on 3s. A 3100kv 3650 can run 3s on that esc (its what I've got in my son's truck). And...

    Some 2.8 proline mashers look good on a bomber (rock bouncer). Might want to look into those. Pretty wide, might have clearance issues with turning though.
