last summer i ran an sp with the lrp/orion 5.5 and it was a missle and very useable power ran stock gearing wich is different than a b44 but for drivability it was killer and alot of other racers at my track who also drove my car agreed. heck if it was me i would wait a week and try the new orion esc. it looks pretty killer plus you can tune it with a laptop useing a usb cable. an orion 5.5 with the timing retarded 3 degrees has awsome punch and still has 6.5 motor killing power. try it!!!

I run a B44 with a Tekin RS Pro and a Peak Racing Vantage 4.5 turn. The thing is a ROCKET!!! It's complete and total overkill, but it forces me to exercise throttle control. I don't need much trigger to get around the track.

Good post. You cant have too much power. If you are a fair to good driver you can only get better by learning to use throttle control. The better you get the more of that power becomes useable.

its all about the tekin rs pro!! so small it leaves tons of room in those cramped 4wheel chassis! not to mention the effeciancy, no heat and 4 min more run time than my former lrp tc and no heat. a little more money but well worth it!!

motor choice depends a lot on the buggy choice too. something w/ an ultra lite drive train isn't going to need as much motor or handle as much motor as something w/ a heavy drive train.
