I haven't owned one but, there's a guy at our track who fried two in a three week period. He says he's done with Losi.

I've been running my Xcelorin esc and motors for almost a year now and haven't had one problem. the esc is way more adjustable than the novak and the motors are as fast as anything on the market.

i've run the xcelorin 10.5 only once...

on a short-medium sized track, carpet surface
this was geared at 6.39 and 6.56 FDRs, LRP TC Spec ESC with brushless profile set between 3 and 7 across a number of runs..

compared to the LRP 10.5 Stock Spec motors, the Losi seems to lack a little bottom end punch when geared to match top speed..

to me this is the difference in power and the resulting torque..

LRP = 255W vs LOSI = 225W

thats 30W difference which has to generate more torque
also there is a vast difference in the kV ratings of the motors..

LRP = 3800kV @ 7.4V = 28120rpm
LOSI = 3080kV @ 7.4V = 22792rpm

i am going to try retarding the timing a little (maybe 2 degrees, hard to tell as there are no markers on the can!) and see if that helps the bottom end..

but i think ultimately it may be a losing battle against the LRPs
