    On something as big as a monster truck, definitely dont penny pinch for a brushless system. Go look up the sale/trade forums on rc tech. u can usually find someone selling a mamba monster combo at a decent price. Also amazon sells the mamba monster setups for $240. But with monsters and truggies, definitely do not get a cheap Chinese setup. those mainly work well in 1/8 scale buggies. If u do try to go cheaper, at least get a good, efficient motor like a castle, fiegao, or nue motor. U can prob skimp a bit on the esc but i wouldn't recommend it.

    If you end up going the brushless route just save the money you'd spend on a HobbyKing system and put it towards a reputable name brand setup with a warranty. Monster truck systems endure the highest loads of any R/C vehicle out there. Not a good place to skimp on quality. The Mamba Monster always get tagged for it's ability to backflip a truck, but that's only if you run a 6s (22.2v) battery through it. Even Castle Creations admits the warranty goes out the window when you decide to do that. You can always run a 3s or 4s setup with tons of run time and power to boot without worrying about shattering bulkheads because you're trigger happy =].

    Hey fkn_smurf you ran a single 540 motor on an e-maxx? Whoa man I bet she heated up! It has to have two 5XX motors or one 1/8 motor.

    Good riddance though. Those old E-maxx's used weak-a$$ servo's and a terrible servo-saver.

    What'd you do to your hand? The old servo savers were the wrapped spring type that sat right on the servo. The new ones use a cam style integrated right into the bell crank. Much more responsive with no slop
