But yes it's still the best compared to everything else out there other than an $800 MGM, not to mention it's nearly twice the size of an XLX
I personally witnessed a xlx power a cm 2200 this past weekend with no cutting out. i was impressed.

Depends on what chassis you plan to run cm 2200kv with XLX in. Throttle may not cut out in a featherweight slash but in a much heavier 1/8 GT it will probably cut out if geared around 1/1 or higher. Give it a shot.

Im still not sold on MGM. I will have to see it produce some serious speeds before Im a believer. I still have not.

MGM actually just offered udluuz a sponsorship but only offering 20% off which still puts the ESC he needs in the $600-700 range. Just not practical to spend that much on a esc to do what we do.
Lol yup, thats the issue the average Joe isn't gonna pay that much for an esc! But I talked awhile with one if their reps and he said they can make any esc to your liking, eliminating failsafes, whatever you want
