    Question Telluride Brushless Upgrade - Need Help!?

    Hello!
    So i bought a Telluride last night, With the intention to upgrade to Brushless..

    First of all, Do i HAVE to go Lipo for a difference or will my Nimh batteries work fine?

    Theres a Titan 12T motor in my car atm, What do you recommend me to get for my Telluride?
    I want more speed but still dont lose any power.. If possible i would like to get it faster AND stronger..

    Im totaly newbie in RC so simple explanations is appreciated.. :P

    What KV do i want in a Brushless motor? Sensored or sensorless? Is it a waste of money if im not planing to get Lipo's?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the Forums!

    If you go brushless, you will want to switch to Lipo batteries. They will give you much more power and longer run time than the NIMH.

    I would look at Castle Creations and Tekin for motors. Here are the links to their websites.

    Tekin: https://www.teamtekin.com/

    If you are going to be doing a lot of crawling, go for a sensored system. If not, still definitely consider it. For the Telluride, I would say somewhere between 3500kv and 4000kv. Its mostly a personal preference, but that is where I would start.

    I would say, yeah. The whole purpose of going brushless is to go Lipo, so if you are sticking with the NIMH, I would stick with the brushed motors. But if you go Lipo and brushless, you will never look back, its a completely different animal.

    Hope that helped,
    Maxx
