I don't think anyone can make a good answer of the question yet as the RX8 is not out yet so no one (except Tekin) has any real world experience with it yet.

I personally will be going with the Tekin setup since I like the enclosed motor that was designed from the get go for surface use. The solder tabs add some additional resistance, but they eliminate the problem if unsupported wires coming out of the motor. They also allow for a cleaner installation. I have never been a huge fan of sensors, but this setup can be run in either sensorless or hybrid mode. Hybrid more is the best of both world for me since I have always liked the efficiency of sensorless but I wouldn't mind the reliable startup of sensors. This isn't that big of a deal with the Neu, Castle or Tekin motors since they are 4-pole motors that work well with sensorless controllers. Using the sensors allows the controller to work with Novak and Speed Passion motors that don't usually work that well in sensorless mode.

I will also be ordering my soon. First I just have to see if the lhs can get it for.

I already have the Mamba monster and tekno neu so I figure now I will try the tekin. Right now I am not sure what kv motor I want though. If the track goes by roar rules I will get a 1900kv to run on 4s. If I can run higher voltage I will probably get the 1400kv and run 5-6s.

Default what about Losi

Was wondering what everyone thought about the Loxi 1/8 Xcelorin? I'm in the market for another system. I had the Losi 1700kv and liked it, but I want to stay current Should I get another Losi, mmm, one of the new sensored???
Thanks

The new sensored systems would be your best bet.

I love my MMM combo , easy too program , LOTS of power , very smooth start up , and its motor is based off of one of the best motors in R/C IMO .

And there are places selling them for 250 shipped ! A BARGAIN for what you are getting IMO .
