LRP 13.5 Stock Spec (locked, orange timing ring)
LRP TC Spec ESC

That will surely be competitive for you

Mitch,
I am running in the 13.5 tc class at AMain. I'm still a beginner, but have learned alot. I use the Tekin RS combo with the Redline 13.5 motor, and no one can pull me on the straight aways. Also, I run the TC5r and can help you get a basic setup on it. Hope to see you at the track.

Alan

I would get either a Novak 13.5, Hacker 13.5, or LRP 13.5 (Hacker and LRP seem to have about the same amount of rip, both more than Novak).
