I've been looking at this Leopard toro 1/10 scale esc and motor combo looking to upgrade to brushless and this looks like it may be a good system. The motor is 4370 kv and a 9 turn seems like it might be a good budget system it cost's about 100$. Any advise about this system of suggestions for other systems thanks!
If your looking for abit of a higher price point I'm pretty shure that hobbywing makes some pretty nice products like the Quicrun bl60 it comes with a 60a esc and a motor (you can choose the turn) and the whole combo is about 100$ (its regularly 140$)
I've run a variety of motor / esc combos (leopard, skyrc, and cool rc, hobbywing) in my raider and quanum vandal, all with good results. Currently running CoolRC 80A + 3800KV. Is as fast as my buddies stock raider BLX (mega). eBay link- $56
Only problem I've found is this is not waterproof. I try to avoid water as a rule with raider, but with seasonal lakes [video link] occupying much of dunes at one of my favorite beach spots, and the crazy speed of the raider on sand tires, there was a little water crossing - enough to short out. Luckily I had just received mavic to play with. And also luckily, once ESC dried out for a week or so, was fine again. Have a dozen or more runs in the sand (2-4 6000mah packs each run) still going strong.
