Flirting with the idea of upgrading my Mini Rio to a brushless. Whats a hot setup? I basically want to make the thing as fast as possible - I have a nice length of pond that won't require much steering so I like the idea of ripping as fast as possible :)

But - I don't know where to start! I read a few different setups on youtube involving Ammo motors, and theres like 2700 kvand 5700 kv or something... and I don't know whats best :(

I am not scared of wiring or fabrication, so what would be an ideal, not too expensive setup for fast moving Mini Rios? Lipo? If so where do you get the batteries and what else is needed? What brushless motor? Help guys!

Try a duratrax VR3 motor for the vendetta ST guy's run them they say it makes the go pretty fast for only $12.00!
