Default 13.5 Brushless Question

i read somewhere on the forums from a member with a few years on here;

"It's possible it felt a bit more stout than the original Orion, but it was definitely NOT on par with the Novak. Maybe on a wide open track the difference wouldn't be as obvious, but on a tight, fast carpet track, it was very apparent the Orion was at a disadvantage."

just was wondering if anyone else has felt this in offroad, because im thinking about trying out a pair, but if its like said above im weary about dropping my novaks.

one thing that ive noticed about the orions are that they have a lil less punch than the novaks. and on a tight track i would prefer the novak

well i have driven both and found the orion a bit faster......for the punch part the orions are smoother, so it could seem that they are less punchy but they are not, also that all depends on your speed control too.
