STAY away from feiagos you get what you pay for

there is nothing wrong with the mamba 5700 motor.. it was faster than my 6.5r and had way more pull down the back straight.

you running lipo ?

and btw a 7700 cant pull the gear that a 5700 can..
why would i lie about something that simple..
ive ran the 6.5r and the 5700 and my 5700 is faster than my 6.5r considering i can gear it higher and it wont break a sweat like the 6.5r will

For pure racing, I probably would give the Tekin ESC that is coming out a look if its available.

I really like my mamba stuff when I used it, but it needs to be smaller as far as the ESC is concerned in my opinion from a pure racing perspective.

If it's a really high traction track, for 4wd I'd be looking at the LRP TC spec. If not, just the regular LRP Sphere Comp.

A wide open track, maybe the 5.5 motors, otherwise the 6.5 should be fine for most everyone.

I own (or have owned) the original sphere, sphere 07, super sport+, GTB, and Mamba max and after running everything the past 2 years have settled on the Sphere 07 with a novak 5.5 turn motor with sintered rotor. There is plenty of power and the esc is crazy smooth.
The mamba max was nice and could be tuned, but the sensorless aspect would rear its head in the most inopportune times. Since I run a one way, the rear wheels regularly lock up whether sliding in a corner or brining the nose down in the air. There have been to many instances where I would need power and it would be a fraction of a second too late...and don't go telling me I wasn't programming it right. and it was with lipo too.
The gtb worked great, but was just too big since the fan is required when the ambient temperature would start to climb.
I prefer the novak motors as they offer so many options with accessories and have hardware kits and endbells readily available. The vector motors are great, but you need to get a sintered rotor to bring them to their full potential which the novak motors include.

6300 max amps saddle pack is a direct fit with no modification. That will give you the most power and run time.

The Novak GTB and 6.5 would be the fastest that I would go personally, but also buy a 10.5 to keep on hand. Though it is a little slower, it is more controlable especially with the more powerful battery. Not to mention that with the 4wd you can actually put all of the 10.5 power down and it is acutally useable.

Remember the faster you go the faster things break.

BTW gearing is very important in relation to your tempatures. I live in central Florida, where it is hotter than most areas and I DO NOT run the cooling fan no matter how hot it gets out side.

The fan does help but it takes up extra space under the body. Many other manfacures do not have fans, so theres proof that it is not a necessity.

HOLY HELL.......there is a lot of options!! hehehe That's a good thing though i guess. Seems the LRP 07 comp is the majority winner here so far , and as far as the motor , man , there seems like at least 5-6 different options on this. I guess when it comes time , i could get the LRP 07 esc , pick a motor out , and then maybe try a couple others or something.

If i get the LRP 07 comp esc , will it let me run most of the motors mentioned above on a 2 cell ( 7.4 -8.4) battery? Like the novaks , mamba motors ect??

Also..thanks alot you guys for all this info , very good info here.
