Default dual purpose motor

So what wpuld be a good motor/esc combo for crawling and at least semi bashing? I'm running 35turn hh /fxr right now that i swiped off my crawler works good, just need more speed lol. I plan to go to 13.5 sensored with mmpro soon. Whait Iability'd like is good crawling and ability to get some good air in high gear too

Works pretty well with a Pro4 3300. In low gear it's easy to control in the tight trails and rocks. Crawls surprisingly well. In high it runs and jumps like a buggy. I'm running 32p gears with a 54 spur and 16t pinion. Oh yeah, 3s batteries too.

I have a viper vtx10/6.5t combo. Crawls amazingly slow with throttle curve set right, pretty punchy in low, in high its ballistic. On 3s i can keep up with my friends mbx6e on 4s.

I'm sure it works awesome, my buddy runs that in his wraith which is at least twice as heavy as my little twammer! A little spendy is the only thing holding me back. Also i already have a 13.5 sensored motor, just need an esc

Who makes a vtx? Would a 35c 2200 3cell supply enough amps for a 6.5 motor??

Viper makes it. I run the stock battery and it does fine. That battery on the 6.5 viper will definitely break stuff if your crazy with the skinny pedal.
