A 3rd party body must be used to ensure proper clearance of the fan. The stock body will not fit properly without modifications.
I was at the track on tue and saw Jeff Kulp with this. I think he is still finalizing the design after talking to Jeff I didn't think they were for sale. After seeing it on the car it does work great and its pretty easy to dye plastic. Im willing to bet tho that they will soon be sold as black

not according to FB. Alton said white only for now. I am running mod right now with my MM, so I dont need a fan anyway. And it just looks terrible in white. I used to dye my plastics back in the rc10 days, I have no desire to do that again. Nor would I paint it as alton suggested

I ran the VTX10R last summer in my SC10.2 in the mod class. Honestly I didn't really like it all that much. It was fairly smooth but I could never seem to get the punch I was looking for with it for some reason, just never liked the "feel" of it. I also had connection issues with the the program card plugging in to the ESC.

I run the HW Stock Spec V3.1 in my B5M in stock class and now I run one in 2wd mod truck. The HW beats the Viper ESC all day long, in my opinion. It's easier to work the program box and it feels like a more powerful, more consistant ESC, to me atleast.

After running an SMC RF-160 in my new B44.3 I plan on grabbing another one for my B5M. 5 minute races with a 7.5T and no fan. I had to keep my finger on it for a few seconds to feel that it was even warm to the touch. Easy to calibrate and program with the included USB adaptor or $10 box. I normally use LRP SXX or Flow and it has just as nice feel to it.

I have 3 vtx10be's and haven't had an issue with any of them. Used/owned quite a few others and my vipers are as good or better than any I've tried. Would recommend to anybody looking for a great esc...

I have 8 viper esc's. They always run great and you can't get easier tuning. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

I've been very impressed with my HW V3.1 ESC. Smooth throttle and brakes, easy set up, and the auto off features is trick. I've heard great things about the REEDY 410R too, very smooth, easily adjustable, and some of the best 2wd buggy braking in the business. Looking forward to switching over soon.
