The Hobbywing ESC Justock cost around $50. Imagine how disappointed I was when I went to the SMC website expecting to see a $25 ESC. Darn...

how much different would the 9.5 be compared to the VXL
I was under the impression that the VXL is a 10T motor
if the 9.5 better then ill look into it, but I want to stay competitive with the crew I'm running with, not completely blow them away.

The 9.5 will have a smoother bottom end by being sensored and better throttle control. It will also have more top end because it is around 4200 kv as opposed to the VXL being around 3200kv and I would expect the rotor to be much stronger. Nothing wrong with a VXL once you pair it with a decent ESC. ( I guess a VXL is like a 10T... from 2006)

As for Glen, the Juststock ESC is very good and the best value in our entire hobby. It's also an 60A ESC so the motor limit is 13.5 IF your car is under 1600g. Also the brake options are limited to big changes like 75% and 100% with no in between. The 8.5~10.5 motors need an 80A or higher ESC.

I agree I have the 170 in both my wheeler and buggy can't really beat the bang for the buck. Especially when you get the ESC motor combo. 159 with the programmer or 129 with just the motor and ESC. As for the others they all are pretty good at this point. I prefer the new xr10 hobbywing as it has drive frequency control.

SMC has drive frequency adjustment I use the USB adapter and program with my laptop not sure if option is available via program box. But the SMC has basically all the same adjustments as a hobbywing but less money
