it works well little bigger but it works and as long as you have fun thats what counts.
and if you feel you can upgrade later

GTX's in all my sedans and XBR in my dirt stuff. I only am running BL in dirt at the moment. Mainly so I don't have anything to worry about such as motor building.

Thanks for your answser. By the way, which ESC should I get? I am new to electric. I am looking for a reasonable ESC. I am planing to run 14t - 19t motor on my 1/12 L4. I have done some research on the web and came up with couple of ESCs. KO, LRP IPC, or Novak Crawler. Thanks.

Smaller is better.
Don't rule out a brushless sytem either

The Brushless speedo all run brushed motor too and they are only a little more expensive than rehushed speedos. It a good investment in the future.

The LRP Sphere Comp 2007 is the easiest to fit in a 1/12th car. Don't get The LRP TC Spec. It has a hard wired fan that you have to cut off to fit under a 1/12th body and that no good.

The most advanced Brushless speedo is the New Speedpassion GT. It is just a bit bigger in length than the LRP but it does way more stuff than any LRP or Novak unit. It fits just fine in a 1/12th too.

I would go for a Mamba Max esc: it can handle brushed and brushless motors. It can also setup easily by connecting the esc to the pc using a standard usb cable and software can be downloaded for free from the Castle Creations website!
