You probably won't find many(if any) people racing a Sprint2 Flux with the kit motor and ESC(an HPI re-branded castle creations sensorless 5700kv motor and sidewinder ESC). One of the main problems is that the kit motor in the flux version would only be legal in an open modified class, but it won't be competitive in that class. It would be a bit slower on the straight and much slower through the infield.
There's one guy I know that races a Sprint2 chassis in 21.5 blinky class(He put in a 21.5 motor and ESC with zero timing to be legal). He's not usually dead last at least. I've heard of several guys using them for USVTA.
It's just not really a race chassis and for bashing you really need to modify a few things to prevent pebbles and other debris from tearing apart the rear belt and diff pulley.
I could make a pretty long list of what I feel is wrong with the sprint2 flux' design and included electronics, but I've been really trying not to be too negative lately.
