I think Tekin considers their RSX Pro to be their premiere model for Mod. (Although the RS Pro BE does list itself as handling up to 2.5T 2 pole brushless).

If it were my money I'd buy the TEKIN RS PRO or the RS Gen 3for running 17.5T instead of the RSX PRO (the RSX PRO is designed for mod motors more so than 17.5, but it will certainly work).
The Motiv MC3 motor is outstanding from my experience, or the Tekin Spec R is also decent if you want to stick with Tekin.

if you're running mod, then i'd go RSX and a 10.5. that will be PLENTY for all but the most skilled 2wd buggy drivers.

The RS PRO is the their top of the line ESC for stock 17.5T applications and it weighs less than the RSX PRO. Both are excellent ESC's though!

So you said Mod in your first post, but now you're talking 17.5 Did you mean Spec? If Spec, I'd get the RS Pro BE

Check at your local track..the FL version is built for stock racing. Using a mod motor will be pushing it but it will work.

I'm running 4WD, 13.5 Spec-R and an RS Pro BE for ESC.

You should do just fine with a 17.5 and RS Pro BE as well.
