Good cheap brushless setup for my clod

Post by Brizz » Sun Jun 05, 2016 2:22 pm

Hi guys

I'm wondering what's a good cheap brushless setup for my clod
At the moment it's just stock motors and a cheap brushed esc
I'm wanting to go for speed more than crawling
I'm pretty new to this and looked at various threads on here and websites and just find myself getting confused with different esc's and motors and which would be OK to run with each other

So far what I think I need is 2 esc's with 2 motors and 2 2or 3 cell lipo's ?a Y cable for the 2 esc's to plug into radio thing ,I may be totally wrong lol would this work

So I'm basically wondering what's the best cheap setup for this situation
Which motors for which esc's kind of thing

Sorry if it's been covered loads of times but I've just no idea lol

Thanks

Brian

Yes, you've got the right idea.

I don't mess with brushless these days, as I've been able to get decent speed out of brushed motors.

Last I knew the toro systems were the cheap ticket. Hopefully some of the other guys will chime in with their motor/esc choices.

Yes, the Toro systems are the cheap ticket an are easy to setup in a clod. No fuss, they just work.
I've been running them for a while now and have had good results. Just make sure you get the 4370kv motors and gear up a few teeth if you want some speed.

Castle SV3 combos are also are very popular and hard to beat for the price and power.
