I won't be going over a 10.5 for any other setups..

Any and all info would be much appreciated...

I would recommend the GTB. It comes with a larger run capacitor and optional fan. And if you should decide to run a hotter mod motor then you can mount the fan upright in front of the ESC. if running it in a buggy.
The GTB is the way to go.

Stick with the GTB why down grade. Its funny even though I had a bad one (XBR) when you here some thing bad it can seem to out weigh the good. It would be hard to say if theres a flaw in design with out seeing some sort of stats from the factory as far as returns vs. non returns in total sales.

GTB's have their issues as well.

The Spread Spektrum 6-cell versions have been releasing the magic smoke like crazy at the indoor track here while my XBR's have been bullet proof. The non Spektrum version of the GTB's have been plenty reliable as well.

Not sure if it was just a bad batch or what. Point is no matter what brand/make/model you look at, there will always be people who have had problems with them. No product is 100%.

Either choice is a good choice. XBR is cheaper and fine if you don't want to go below 8.5, GTB is good if you want something you can run any motor you want.

Just my $.02...keep the change
