So im new here and i have a question.

Well maybe a couple questions but i'll try and keep em short

Names Cameron from Edmonton Alberta. I have been out of the R/C game for a little over a year, got playing world of warcraft. nuff said but i am now wow free for over a month. thank you! thank you!!

Heres my problem (as if wow wasnt enough haha) Currently i have an Associated T4RS. Bone stock with the exception of the shock upgrade. Long story short its not fast enough any more and the 10 minute(if im lucky) run times on a 4200 mah nimh battery are killing me.

As far as getting replacement parts for the T4 is it worth holding onto and doing the brushless/li-po swap? Or should i look into another platform? Traxxas Slash, or SC10 (if it ever comes out) I would like to get into an E-revo for the 4wd but if i wanna go brushless its gonna cost me around $800 over here for the brushless edition. Or almost that if i buy a Std E-revo and convert. I have done some homework but obviously not enough. What other options do i have in the 1/10th scale 2wd stadium truck market? Anything new that is out or is about to come out that i could wait for?

Also if i go ahead and do the conversion on the T4 where should i look to stop as far as a KV rating on a brushless motor? How much is too much for a 2wd truck?

I almost spent $500 today on a mamba max 6900 kv combo, charger, and batteries. But i made myself hold off till i did some more homework.

I think thats enough questions for a first post
Thanks in advance
