What is the big deal with people buying a $450 car and swapping the motor out. Why not buy a roller and add what you want. Am I missing anything here.

Arrma doesn't sell them as a roller and until recently, they weren't readily available on ebay except in pieces, if you were lucky.

I just think it’s ppl who have extra motors laying around and just experimenting maybe

Seems people are seeking more power and speed as well. Hard to imagine... the arrma trucks are so brutal with power on 6S. Then again, a larger esc/motor will allow you to bash longer and harder without overheating.

Why would someone want to buy a whole other car just to have a different motor when they can just swap it out? Not sure I understand your question. They would end up spending another $450. They already own one car. Just swap the motor.

Probably don't like the stock setup, or just want even more power. Nothing wrong with more power. Even though my Typhon shreds tires with the stock electronics no problem.
