    Well, make sure you upgrade the Ruckus transmission gears to metal ones. The stock plastic ones won't handle the Brushless power. That Element system is pretty good. Nice torque, decent top end. A nice budget brushless system.

    Well this setup is basicly a Sv2 ESC and castle 4 pole 540 correct. Should be perfectly at home in a 2wd 1/10 on 2s.

    Yeah, it's reallly only going to be the best in a 2wd vehicle. The can is a bit too small to produce the torque for larger 4wd vehicles.

    i have one in my original brushed rustler and its a great system just have to make sure the esc can get plenty of cool air or it will get too hot and enter thermal shutdown as a result i notched out my body for high air flow and she freaking screams with it, more power than i think the 2s traxxas vxl system had, i highly recommend this system now if only i can get the esc waterproofed
