This link will take you straight to the motor/esc/programming card combos. 13.5 and 17.5 combos are both $120.

Honestly any setup should work fine, though if it's for younger ones I wouldn't go too crazy, no lower than 13.5T. Also, pay attention to the Turn rating, a 1/10 motor may not be a full 540 size motor even though it appears to be. Whole numbers (13T or 17T) are usually a smaller armature, and can usually be told visually by deeper fins on the motor can. Half numbers (13.5T or 17.5T) are true 540 size motors, and usually have smooth cans or very shallow fins.

Either way, I would definitely recommend Lipo. Hell, you may wanna do that first, since that will actually make the stock Titan a fair bit quicker on it's own, though it will also let you burn the Titan up quicker as well.

As for switching to Lipo first half the reason we want to convert to brushless is because of reliability of the stock system. In talking to the guys at a few hobby shops and my frsutrations with reliability (and my general troubleshooting and repair knowledge of RC shit) they suggested we convert to brushless as it is not only faster, but much more reliable than the stock traxxas crap. Your thoughts?
