I would agree the Novak 8.5 is a great motor.

Best choice out of the 3 listed.

I highly recommend a Castle Creation's Mamba Max ESC + 4600 combo... The ESC is quite rugged, and the 4600 is plenty power for your 2WD.

I run the 5700 myself, but kinda wished I went for the 4600... The 5700 is a little too much, even for my 4WD...

Do you think that motor manufacturers are ever going to release their efficiency vs rpm plots...like the ones you see in the magazines?

I understand that one mfg's dyno won't be comparable to other's but at least within the same manufacturer, it could help in motor selection.
