    Exclamation Would this be a logical thing to do?

    Ok, so I am getting a 1/16 summit vxl and I want to upgrade the electronics and motor. I did some research, and decided that i would use the Tenbol motor mount and the Team EPIC REVTECH 4XS Quad Magnet
    12-Pole 540 Sensored Brushless Motor (1/8" Shaft) (7200kV), with the Team Orion Vortex R10 Pro Brushless ESC (160A, 2-3S). I would be running this setup with 2, 3-cell Maxamps LiPo 1850 11.1v batteries. Is this
    setup a good setup?
    I want my 1/16 summit to go as fast as I can get it to go, so if there are other setups that will make it do
    that, please feel free to share what they are.
    P.S.: my price range is infinite so if you have any recomendations, I'm open to suggestions.
    Thanks,

    I think you would spend all of your time repairing your truck. The stock motor with 2s lipos is very hard on the drive train, even with upgraded componets. JMO. With 3s lipo and that kv motor, you would have to gear way down to keep temps down in order not to burn up your motor or esc. Again JMO.

    you could get a brushed model and not need to change the motor mount

    maxamps are ok batteries... but they are stupid overpriced.....

    Not to mention over rated... should be renamed "maxprice"
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Do more research. There are better options for what you have in mind.
