Default how is the esc and motor on the venture

how is the esc and motor on the venture compared to aftermarket brands? I am already planning on upgrading the servo because i found a good place by my house to do rock crawling, but the servo is having a rough time.

But how is the ESC and motor? It looks like its holding up OK, but i dont really have any other experience with crawling to know if it really is good or not.

i saw that there is the hobbywing axe brushless setup, which looks terrific, but in reality, how much better is it over the RTR gear.

I am not competing or anything, just having a fun time. however, if the truck would perform much better with better stuff on it, then i dont mind upgrading.

i am having more fun doing crawling than i ever had with my other classes of cars. since i am having a great time, i find it fun to upgrade

thanks in advanced.

The stock stuff is okay. I changed mine to a HW 1080 esc and Holmes Hobbies TrailMaster motor. Relatively inexpensive way to go as far as upgrades. The Axe system is pretty good from what I hear but I have no personal experience with it. I say upgrade as something breaks. If youíre enjoying it now keep in having fun and worry about upgrades only when you need to.

Agreed ^

Except maybe look at a better servo. To stay budget and not need a BEC the DS3218 servos on Amazon are a decent value.

While the axe system and others are certainly an improvement in throttle control, speed, and drag brake, it’s generally more of a different experience driving rather than something that will make your rig crawl or climb better, aside from those lines that really need the torque and wheel speed.

Best first things IMO would be servo, metal beadlock wheels/tires/foams, and some SSD brass steering knuckles.

One more vote for the stock drivetrain electronics being just fine.

I only changed my motor when I made my Venture too heavy for the stock motor to last on long, long rocky climbs in hot weather (80f+).
