    What is the stock esc and motor worth used in good working condition?

    You can find brand new ones for about $65. So for a used one I'd probably pay $30-40 for one.

    I stand corrected. I totally missed somehow that it was both the ESC and brushless motor.

    In this case you can buy a brand new combo for $115 so for a used setup I might give $70-80 for the combo.

    Yup. The kit breakers sell the BLX185 ESC for about $65 and the motor for about $40. New, but not in new packaging.

    I put one in my Yeti XL after the shock system smoked for a 3rd time. The difference was sick. I don't know what Castle did with the stock system, but whatever it was they should never do it again.

    So I currently have a viper vtx8 in my yeti xl and a viper vf21 motor. The viper esc should blow this blx out of the water. I'll probably just dump the blx system into my yeti xl. My xl was the kit version.

    It better, the viper system is worth literally 3 times as much as the blx. I bolted some X-Maxx tires to my yeti xl & it's handling that load in spades.
