    Brushless set up

    I'm looking to turn my old rustler into brushless. Right now I already got the gray trans with upgraded gears and slipper with 32pgears. Upgraded to cvds as well. Looking to get a brushless system that will pep it up with out making it undriveable. All I have for power at the moment is 7cell 4200 duratrax battery's. But do want to jump into lipo at some point. Would the Traxxas vxl be a good option or castle?

    Probably castle. 3800kv system is more adjustable, cheaper, and potentially power powerful, but hasen't been proven. All I know is it is mighty powerful. It also includes a free fan.

    The castle 3800 kv motor and sidewinder sv3 esc is a good combo.
    Too much power is just enough

    If I'm reading the specs right it can handle 2s and your running 3s have you noticed any ill effects?

    I have heard that running 3s the sidewinder esc does get a little hot
