You'll get the same feeling when moving to lipo as you did going to BL! It will feel like a new truck again, AGAIN!

It looks good, but you should shorten the wires between the battery and ESC as much as you can. Those cells are good, but they still have a lot of internal resistance. If you shorten the wires you might notice a little more punch out of them.

Nice, i've had people, (BEN, RYAN) that threw me into brushless, yet i didn't have the money yet, so im happy. Sounds like some good projects.

Gearing = if the temps are all fine, then the gearing is fine basically. The motor shouldnt excede 180*f max, esc about 140-150, and batts... well, they're nimhs, so... dunno.

Ideal temps would be 120-140 on esc and motor- working them hard but not so hard that they are over heating.

Looks like there is enough room to mount the esc on the opposite side of the chassis to the rx- that will lower the CoG a touch, and place the esc in a more protected location should the rusty end up upside down. Industrial grade velcro works wonders for mounting, especially with a lightweight esc like that

Hmm, looks like im gonna have to get a temp gun.... Lol. Mount it on the chassis, could i extend the wires on the motor then? Should the rustler end upside down? Its upside down more than up wards. lol.

You shouldnt need to extend the motor wires, just route them differently around the side of the shock tower (or through it), rather than up and over it. A temp gun is essential with BL setups, otherwise you will cook something sooner or later- sticking a finger on the motor for 3 seconds aint all that precise or reliable...
