Losi Desert Buggy XL Brushless Conversion.

Hello to all out there.

As we are all aware the recent Losi DBXL has hit the scene and now we are about to undergo another massive run of people working on brushless conversions. I for one am one of them Not a noob to brushless but relatively new to 1/5th scale conversions. I am seeking input on the basics of mechanical brakes (using the stock servo) and still being able to keep the reverse function of the 2028 motor. I have read enough to know that I think I am really out to lunch on this as it doesn't seem possible I am doing this because the motor setup and power usage on batteries without going the (ultra expensive) 13000 mAh Maxamps batteries will be pretty high.

Re: Losi Desert Buggy XL Brushless Conversion.

I'd stick with the Gas myself, as fun as brushless might be for a limited time only. Upgrading the motor to a Bartolone 30.5 or Gizmo 30.5 will wake it up for sure. Got to love 45 minute run times on Gas too
