so i finally got to run my mm last night,it was also my first time running a mid motor card period,my car is bone stock, i run stock also. it was set up box setup and it was ok just a little loose for the 1st couple packs,so i switched my arms over the rm front and rear arms. Ran it again and it helped out a lot but still wasn't satisfied on how the car was running,granted i didn't have the typos everyone was using but traction was coming up.My 1st qualifier i ended up 2nd in the heat but 13th overall out of 33 or so buggies,and there was a lot of chassis sponsored guys running stock because there was no mod,i would say the top 7 were chassis sponsored guys. That first round i ran m3 ions and i just couldn't push it like i wanted to. So the next round i went to 3/2 rear inserts and .5 in my rear hubs and ran ss handlebars,My car was much better and i felt i could push it a little harder and ran a 20.073 and the fast sponsored guys were running 19.2s i believe.I felt i had the car in the right direction. So my main was up and i put the soft ions back on thinking i could push it a little more with this tires since i was 6th in the b,boy my car was stuck like velcro and it was hard to drive,i think i was running 5th and i was getting plowed by one car corner after corner (didn't think he knew how to use brakes) and finally he spun me into a pipe and i ended up 7th in the b. Not were i wanted to finish but the class had some heavy hitter and for someone with no expectations other then trying to make the car good i felt like it was a good night. So i can't wait to get some more wheels time on the car and see what else i can do with it,not to shabby for a bone stock heavy car

What would you guys recommend for a cost saving decent stock only ESC? I am building a RM (sold my slash and even though I don't need it I wanted to build another car). My mm I have a RS Gen2 because the "stock" class at one of the tracks I will run at allows boost and what not. But for the RM I want to run straight stock to get started. Is it worth it to go for a high end esc or are there any low end ones that I really wouldn't notice a difference on. Id probably get a D4 or another killshot as the motor, unless there is any reason to get anything different.

Thanks for any advice!

Looks like a c4.2 finnisher. I know lots of guys are running them. I run my c4.2 finnisher body on my rear motor and mid motor.

not arguing with you on that one. there are alot of ppl that use them. the only thing is though, is that rivkin, cav, and hartson are running these at the hotrod shootout that is happening right now. and pw @ jconcepts said they would be an aug. release or maybe sooner. just speculation.

I can definitely swing the orion, but at that point id probably stick with another RS Gen 2 as I have the hotwire setup and what not.

I was more curious about the hobby wing stuff. As I said this would be for pure stock 17.5 blinky.

When I want to step up that car I would probably go for an orion pro or something. For ~$60 will it do what I need it to do? Better way to phrase the question - Will I be at a huge disadvantage running the hobby wing stock vs someone with a "better" ESC?
