I don't have 10.5 's to compare but I have ran ran both brands 13.5's. My speedpassion 13.5 is faster than my Novak (with the big rotor).And not to mention is a lot easier to change the setting on the speedpassion gt since it comes with the handy little black box to do it with. Speedpassion is the way to.And don't if you have quetions about it with one post or email you answer it.

Good choice...you won't be disappointed (I have 2)....

Beside, jump over to the speed passion thread....like 2nd pages from last, Schumacher driver just posted the 10.5 setup.......these kinda support is a hugh plus for buying SPEED PASSION and SCHUMACHER.

I would give the Speed Passion ESC a vote, but nay on the motor.

Several racers at my local club have had a rash of bad SP motors and have gone back to running the very reliable Novak Motors.

Could you elaborate on "bad motors"

We had guys claiming the SP motors to be bad aswell, turned out they where overgearing and cooking the motors.
If racers take the time to understand and ask questions as well as read the forums they will have a lot less hassles.

This is a no brainer. Go with the Speed Passion because it is a very nice system and Shawn and Adam at Schumacher are always available to help you. You can't ask for better customer service than these two guys provide to their customers.

I have been dealing with Shawn and Adam since they came to Schumacher and it is has been a great experiance.

Another plus is the Speed Passion speed control is so much more updated and with the programming box puts it far ahead of the other one your looking at.
