Yeah, I never thought this Subaru body has so nice shape. Silver color really brings it out. Good job

My DM-1 is nitro but in my buggy I bought a Novak system that really never did it for me. The castle was good but sold it to get the TEkin and never looked back. The Tekin gets my vote for 1/8 speedo.

That must be a really fast combo, I only went with the 2200 KV because it's rated to 6S, but the 2650 is not.

I can see where you comining from with it being sensor and very smooth but I have seen too many Tekin fail. My coworker alone had to send his Tekin back 14 time. My castle has fail on me twice.

yeah I know but I did run with a 6s also with that 2650 and it was stupid fast we went 86mph with the DM1 but it was just a speed run not to race with.

losi
tekin
tekno
castle creation
novak

which one you recomend?


one more thing, whats the difference between 1700k, 2050k, 2200k & 2650?

thanks, Bobby
i would go with losi and castle, the 2650 is a handful on dirt. it (for real blows my fronts off the rims) the 2200, or 1800 are better on 4s lipo

Exactly. With the position of the rotor known, it allows for smooth starts and better throttle control.

Maybe we should start our own electric GT 1/8 scale thread.
