    Question Castle Sidewinder?

    Hi,

    So I'm thinking of upgrading the electronics on my vxl 2wd slash. I run stock gearing and a 3s lipo.
    I'm not looking for a major power increase, just a bit more torque and a system that would run fairly cool.
    Would the castle sidewinder be a good option or do you have any other ideas?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the reply!
    I forgot to mention that even if there was just a motor that I could upgrade to, that would be even better than replacing the whole system as I don't want to experiment too much with electronics.

    The Castle 3800 system is a good upgrade, it has a bit more power than the VXL system, has a lot more tuning options, and is a lot easier to program.
