Default Budget electronics for 1/10 crawler?

Probably a stupid question..but are there any well known good / decent budget options? I'd really like to build a kit, but having to buy all the other parts seems pricey. I'm specifically looking at the element enduro, if that matters.

This would be for a 1/10 scale crawler.

Hobbywing 1080 is the best brushed ESC on the market, and it happens to only be 42 dollars. Pair it with the new Reedy 16T 5-slot brushed motor for 28 dollars and a cheap 15-20 dollar 25kg servo from Amazon, you’re set! Radios can be found used for cheap, like a takeoff 3 channel Tactic or something.

I would get the trailmaster sport 550 from Holmes if you can fit it

It fits. I have one in mine. But the Reedy will be a better motor IMO.

The Reedy is probably smoother, but the Holmes will probably have more torque and drag brake.
Both decent budget choices though.

Hobbywing 1080 and trailmaster is a great budget friendly combo.
Look to a 27t motor if you're set on brushed and gear accordingly. Works great on 3s.

I have a 21t HH Trailmaster Sport 550 wedged into my Vaterra Ascender K10 with a HW 1080 ESC - paired with an Amazon special DS3218 servo and a FlySky GT3C radio and receiver, it's amazing how much fun it is.

Sure, I have a brushless Bomber with much higher-end gear in it as well - but I'd be hard-pressed to say which is more enjoyable!

When my TRX-4 fried its ESC, I immediately ordered another TrailMaster/1080/DS combo to drop in it - I'll keep the Traxxas radio for now, for all the convenient switches for shifting and locking the diffs...
