I was just giving you a hard time because you were mainly doing it to run that corally motor, but in a boosted 17.5 or 13.5 race, I'd wager that several sub $200 ESC's attached to a decent motor are at least as fast or faster. I wouldn't trade my killer whale
of an ESC for a BD.
You may do as you wish of course.
I dislike the price of many things in this hobby, but I love the hobby. Sometimes you just know you're getting ripped off and it feels wrong. A lot of things probably should
be a little cheaper, but aren't.
