And while we are on the subject of speedies, can some one tell me what BEC is? what does it stand for and what does it do. I have a blue wire on my dominator evolution which im told is for BEC. I have shrink wrapped it up at the moment till I find out why its there.

BEC-Battery Elimination Circuit. It's mostly used for higher power batteries. The BEC of many ESCs is not built to handle the higher power of the batteries. Mainly the BEC is used to power the servo(s) and RX. Castle Creations has a better definition than I can provide.

I got the Sphere/Peak 10.5 combo, I drove it first with my komodo and the sphere to compare to my GTX and it was smoother, not a huge difference though. I put in the Peak geared it to 23 (from 21) and I left it on the default profile since time was short and I didn't want to read the manual. I was very impressed on the first drive, its verrry smooth yet still very fast, I am pulling wheelies on the step down now. Runtime was noticeably longer too, the "boss" gave the 15 min call and I thought I would just run till the pack dumped, but it never did (it had to have been very close too) Hopefully I can make racing on sunday and see if I can better my times.
