    Replacement ESC

    The ESC on my son's Torment burned out (literally, started smoking) a while ago and I need to replace it. I have read a few threads here about upgrading to Goolrc brushless motor/ESC. That sure sounds fun, but I'm a little worried it'd be too fast for him (he's 8 years old.) A couple of...

    Painfully slow acceleration - AMP MT.

    I understood that the ECX amp would be slow in stock form, but what bugs me is that there is no punch at all when starting. No tire spin and very slow build up to top speed. I upgraded to a goolrc 17 turn brushed motor (cheap Chinese ebay motor) and while the top speed is a bit better, the...

    AMP MT complete electrical overhaul.

    So I bought my son (17 yo) his first hobby grade rc for his birthday a few weeks back. I turned him loose in our local hobby and he chose an ECX Amp MT. Not knowing much about rc cars (I'm an airplane guy myself) I didn't realize that this model was on its way out... He drove his truck with...

    Recommendations on an ESC

    So I think the ESC on my son's AMP MT has gone out again, this would be the second one now and I think I will just upgrade it. The truck will steer and go forward fine, but has lost it's reverse. Couldn't find anything in the manual about a race mode, and I tried adjusting the throttle trim...

    Want to go brushless...

    Hi, I want to go for a brushless setup in my ecx circuit 2wd. I was planning on going with a goolrc setup. My question is wat combo should I buy for my rc? I probably could find it out myself. But it would be a lot faster to just just ask on the forum :D.
