Not at all. I use the Reedy Servos, ESC's and motors in all my cars and they have been great.

Not bad at all. The Reedy blackbox, reedy servos, and mach 3 motors are all top of the line.

Yes, one is a short stack, other is a regular stack. Short stack motors make more power and RPM, but get hot easier. They're more sensitive to gearing and timing as well. They're excellent for a very seasoned racer who is smooth. If you're not this description, get the #254.

With regard to what? There is a torque version and a speed version. I use the torque version in my cars.

Most tracks are not allowing boost. Which is kinda good in my opinion.

There's the 800 and the 410r.

Personally? If it's in the budget, buy the 410r with programmer. It's state of the art, and rightfully so for the price.

I used to run touring cars when Stock was 17.5 Boosted. I'm so glad Stock racing both on-road and off-road no longer allows boosting. Bring on the blinky.

The 800z is more of a stock only (it can handle down to a mild modified motor...9.5-10.5ish), It is blinky only and you can adjust a limited number of settings. It is available as a package with a Reedy 17.5 Mach 3 motor for a great price as well. The 410r is the full blown race esc. Can handle down to a 3.5 motor (which you will never use in a buggy) and you can adjust a multitude of settings via the program box.

If you need more info check out www.reedypower.com
