Hi! i run the stock VXl 3500 on my slash and i was wondering if anyone has any tips on esc and/or motor? i want to be able to do kinda amateur speed runs in like 65-70 mph and then just 'switch pinion gear and go offroad and drive around in the woods jumping and stuff. It would also be nice if it was waterproof but its not a must. i have a budget of (around) 260 USD. (budget only includes esc/motor)
Also will a 3s be enough for those speeds or do i have to get a better battery also?
As Fyrstormer pointed out, 70 is pretty crazy in an RC, but any castle 1/8th esc with the 1515 on 6S should do this for you. Expect to find out that the motor can produce much more power than the drivetrain can handle.
