    I suppose it will depend on what u wanna spend!! I ran a dynomite tazer 4000kv system then the ESC crapped out. So I threw in a CC sidewinder 4600kv system. I was only going to replace the ESC but it was not much cheaper than the ESC motor combo. Both are great systems but I think there are a lot of good systems out there and prob for a lot cheaper.

    Keep in mind you will need to get a radio also. The amp is an ESC/rcv combo.

    As for a brushless ESC I like the hobbywing WP-SC8. Very good cheap ESC.

    I literally just got done putting brushless system in mine and I was very surprised how simple dynamite made it. http://www.horizonhobby.com/SearchDisplay?manufacturer=Dynamite&catalogId=10051&langId=-1&Type=SimpleSearch&storeId=1015 The tazer twin 3000kv brushless/ ESC combo. I paid 89.00. But as he said before need a new reciever. I would go with the spectrum DX2E Transmitter and receiver combo. Probably the best for your money. I would like to recommend upgrading to a metal pinion gear set and definitely a metal spur gear. If not your going to wear the teeth out quick unless have gotten decent at setting your slipper clutch.

    Insanehawaiin, How has the Tazer Twin held up? How much and how hard do you drive it? How has the Amp held up with brushless?

    Thx

    I just installed a Gool RC Brushless system in my AMP today, I love it. Great combo.

    Oh, and it's only $39.99 shipped!!

    I posted a mini review on this same AMP forum

    I also have a Castle 4600K combo brushless motor running a 7200mAh 60C 3S Gen Ace battery. Upgraded to all steel gears and get 45 minutes plus run time. AMP has been clocked at 67mph. LOVE this truck, so easy to upgrade. You will have to buy a new radio.
