Default Tekin Gen 2 Combo?

Thinking about getting a new gen2 esc and redline g2 motor to put in my Team Durango Desc210 RTR to replace the stock system. I have been debating between the 13.5T, 13.5T RPM, and 10.5T. The truck will be used for bashing and racing. I assume if I get the 10.5T I can always turn down the power if it's to much for the track I am on or adjust that with my trigger control. I also know there could be a problem depending on if my battery can handle it. I have Onyx 5000mah 35C 2s packs. Are these good enough. How do I determine how many amps the motors might pull.

If there is any other systems you guys would reccomend from tekin or castle I can get a good deal from my buddy. Or is there another brand I should consider too. I assume I should defiantly stick with a sensored system for racing?

Stick with sensored. Your batteries will be fine. But you might want to see the class rules at your track. The standard in a mod buggy is 8.5/7.5. I'd recommend a 8.5t.

yes, most places don't race 13.5 (usually considered super stock) so you 13.5 would probably be considered mod, and in mod you would get killed by the others with their 8.5s

Thanks guys. So the 8.5T TT2428 is the combo I want. That's going to have enough torque for a Short Course Truck correct?

If your new to racing you don't want a 8.5 motor. Get a 13.5 and run it. We race on a large indoor track and several guys hang just fine with a 13.5 and have an easier truck to drive as well. More power/speed is not always better.

Speed Freak - I use to race a long time ago and I'm getting back into it now. I'm wondering though with all the new technology what disadvantage would there be with getting the 8.5T and gearing it lower or just turning down the power until I get use to it. That way I only have to spend money 1 time.

I'd go with the 10.5 and if you need more speed you can always add some boost to it.

Ended up ordering the 8.5 combo, hotwire, and cord. Can't wait to get it into the truck and test it out. I choose the 8.5T since that's what a few people at the track I race said. The outdoor track is pretty big. They run 1/8th and even 1/5 scale sometimes. Thanks for everyones help
