if you're loking for good under $120 USD you'll probably be looking for used esc's like an LRP QC2 or QC3. I run a QC2 in my B4 with Reedy Quad-Mags and it's a powerful yet smooth combo. You might find a brand new tekin G-11 still available in your price range, try stormerhobbies.com

You might want to consider spending a little more and getting a Tekin RS or RS Pro that will run anything brushed, brushless (sensored or non) they go for about 200USD (130) but you'll be set for anything on the market now and in the near future with that.

the novak dually is only about 70 bucks and you can run any turn motor.....lipos ( up to 8.4 volts) cant beat it for the money

In that case, the NoVaK is sufficient. I personally prefer Teiken or CC

There are so many people going brushless these days.. look around at your local track or on ebay for deals. I've seen Novak GTX esc go for $50... it's about as top of the line as you can get!
