if you do some shopping, you can find a decent brushless combo (esc/motor) for $100 or less. you are gonna want (imo) at least a 60a esc and somewhere around 3000-4000kv motor. for batteries, sky lipo, gens ace, spc, all seem to have good prices. for a mild system like i mentioned above, 30-40c, 2s (7.4v) lipo should be fine in the 4000-5000mah range.

you dont really have to go metal gears, but it is a good investment as usually the plastic ones will fail. another modification would be to replace the stock driveshafts with the traxxas driveshafts. same as the gear thing, its not a must, but it will be needed shortly after the bashing/ racing begins.

This motor got a good review from URC, but you'll want to upgrade to metal gears. This much power and a LiPo will make oatmeal of that plastic gearbox. Kind of a lot of money to spend, but it will certainly scream. IME you're going to be replacing other parts like the hub carriers and drive shafts if you go for more power than this truck was designed for.

Tacon 3200kv - $24
HobbyWing 60A ESC - $55
SkyLipo Hardcase 4400mah 40C - $25
ECX Metal Gear Transmission Set - $23

No problem.. That's what we are here for.. I buy all my electronics from there.. Sky lipos are great for bashing.

If you're patient, hobbyking.com has great prices also but they're located in Another country. There's one hobbyking in u.s.a but they have few parts. The downside is their shipping rates also..

I'm currently running a mamba max ESC with a Castle 6900Kv motor, Sky Lipo 3300 Mah 20C. Its way more than fast enough for me, and I never see a lack of punch, it will wheelie on demand. Still running the plastic gears, and the slipper is set as it was when it came out of the box. I did upgrade to the traxxas shafts, as I broke one of the stock ones with the brushed motor.

As for prices:
$60.00 for the Mamba combo used
$15.00 for the Sky Lipo
$27.00 - $90.00 for a Lipo charger
$35.00 for power supply
AE T4, SC10 2WD. B4, B44.1, Kyosho SCRT, Ofna MBX+1 Pro, Ofna Comp E-Scale, Hyper ST Pro E-conversion Truggy, TC4 X2, Bolink pan car.
Hobbypartz.com & Tekin ftw.....
