Default 17.5-Foam

Getting ready to start running 17.5 Foam T/C and wanted to get some feedback on what motor/speed control to use. Thanks

Tekin ESC, and any Trinity based Duo motor, although I'm partial to the Putnam Propulsion products. For a smaller track start with zero motor timing, and about 20-25* boost and roll it out around 1.80" and work up from there

I'd suggest getting a Tekin RS Pro ESC! Its specs are amazing and its got the lowest internal resisrance... So it will give MAX Power! I have a SP motor... Just get a Sensored motor and you'll be fine! Orion or SP

The standard RS is fine for a 17.5 motor. It is lighter and cheaper. All the team Tekin drivers I know run the standard in 17.5 and usually in 13.5. Going faster, start thinking about the Pro.

I've consistently had the best luck with Duo based motors.

Good Luck,
