Carpet 2wd buggy. I currently run a Xerun just stock $100 setup. Would I notice a difference with a more expensive setup in stock racing?

What are the local fast guys running? Start there.

Also, how is your consistency? Can you drive 5 laps without crashing? If not, faster motor may hurt more than help.

I'm crashing like once every 30 laps.

Wow. If your crashing once every 30 laps, your pretty darn good. If your inquiry is concerning a faster set up, I would say keep what you have. It obviously works for you

Keep what you have. The HW Juststock is great! Keep dialing in your setup.

Juststock esc with a nice motor. I like Trinity, but there are others. I have the Trinity Monster, but I think there is a newer model. Don’t bother buying a high end esc for stock. Spend your saved money on a better motor.

For local racing, the HW Juststock is what I've seen just about all the time paired with either a Trinity or Reedy S-Plus.

The HobbyWing XR10 Stock Spec paired up with the Trinity Punisher has been the most popular combination in our area on a covered turf track. Note that the Punisher is not ROAR legal but the club allows this motor to help end motor wars and keep costs down. Sponsored drivers can still run their preferred motor too.

What we have noticed is that the Justock ESC has a weaker BEC and when paired up with the Punisher and a high drain servo such as a Savox, then the BEC will tend to brown out toward the end of an 8 min main.

Folks who upgraded to the XR10 Stock Spec had no more brown out issues and also noticed a remarkable increase in brake strength, while acceleration and top speed remained the same after switching to the XR10 Stock Spec.

This!
The XR10 stock spec has more settings and options (over the juststock version) that you might use to help make your car easier to drive or better suited to your driving style.
Assuming you also have the HW justock motor, you would likely notice a difference with a decent 17.5. The big question is will that difference translate to faster lap times.

Yes the drive frequency settings are very helpful for changing feel and driveability. The added burst and continuous current on the xr10 should be noticeable if the OP is that consistent. The higher BEC will help speed up the fan too if it isn't wired to the battery posts already.

I'm sure the XR10 has more settings/options, but the OP was asking about the most popular not the best. I would still wager the Juststock is likely more widely used for spec local racing.
