Damn it....i'm probably going to have to buy two B44's now , and put a Tekin system in one and a LRP system in the other.

Is this the tekin package i should be looking at? >>> http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ducts_id/32312

and is this the LRP package i should be looking at? >>>> Motor > http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ducts_id/34261
and ESC >>> http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ducts_id/14048

In the LRP stuff , i get confused on the exact ESC i'm supposed to be looking at.

Both the tekin and LRP stuff look so good....it's a hard choice.

Im running a 5700 MM. I have all the power i nee and find it perfect for most tracks. Im not running lipos tho, so maybe a 4600 would work for you. Although i do know of a hot bodies driver who uses the 7500 in his ride!

well guys....thanks for all the advice on the motor/esc stuff. As of right now i've decided to go with the Tekin RS pro 6.5 or 7.5 setup >>>> http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ducts_id/32307

seems like it'll be a great setup. And who knows....i may get into this hard enough again to try out the LRP set up as well. maybe try out some of the novak motors as well with these esc's.

thanks again!

Hi jeffro503
With the Tekin RS Pro and B44. You could put in either 5.5 or 6.5 too.
The RS Pro can handle the hotter brushless motors.
Something to think about.
Tekin has real good tech support from staff and team drivers. If you have questions on your Tekin, you can go to www.teamtekin.com. They have thier own forum.
Everyone is be more then happy to help you with your questions.
If you have any.

Thanks man. I am sure i'll be hitting up the tekin forums once i get things under way. I was shooting for something pretty powerfull , thinking something like a 6.5 or 7.5 because i didn't want to over power the car. The track i'll be running it on isn't all that big , but it'll have some sections where i'll need all the grunt out of the motor i can get. I will definetly do some more reading before i finally decided to buy tekin system. I could just swap out motors to i guess? Have a 7.5 for here at home and maybe a 5.5 when i go to a bigger track...that might work.
