You also say "not ROAR races"....do they not allow Sidewinders?
You could run 3s lipo with the Sidewinder and 5700 combo. Would be super fast if you felt the need to go that fast.

The Speedo would be legal but the motor does not meet ROAR rules at this time and sensored motors do not work as well with the Sidewinder, especially the higher winds like 13.5 and 17.5.

You should probably read that the Sidewinder can only handle the 5700 on 2s, not 3s. You can run the 4600 on 3s, and that will still be rediculously fast.
My vehicles (that work):
Custom experimental Losi 810/TEN SCTE - The fastest 1/8 scale buggy on the track - 5.2lb rtr - readily convertable to a ROAR legal 1/10 scale 4x4 SCT.
Custom Losi 8ight - lowest CG of any 1/8 buggy
Losi 22 Mid Motor
