    what size tekin

    Ok i have the 1/10 summit and am wonderring what size tekin motor and esc to get? I also wonder if ya can use nimh batteries with any motor and esc able to use lipo? I have two of he trucks anyone is new and one is a used one with crapped out out motor. I am looking for a bit more power, well not so much more power but speed And i have heard the tekin is good for the replacement in summit for speed and crawling because it is sensored i think? I thought about getting a bigger spur/pinion As well but don't know what size to get for good speed like prob 45 o so would be plenty. But still have the torque and not bust up the driveline too fast.
    I would appreciate any good and helpful advice. Experienced with this stuff. Thanks

    Ok probably On the motor. Will it work with the nimh though? Just until i can get some lipos too. Prob gonna get some other stuff too for spare parts to have for when stuff beaks. Pick up some lipos later, but will prob get a double charger able to do lipos as well as nimh. Thanks for the info.
