Default Best performance speedos and motors

Hello

I have same doubts

which is the best combination (performance) in track with lipo battery

LRP SPX stock spec with GM Pro Stock 9,5T

LRP SPX stock Spec with CS 9,5T

GM 90 or 120 with the same motors (CS 9,5T , GM PRO Stock 9,5T)


Thanks in advance
Best regards:
Pedro Silva

From those 2 the spx. the motor isn't that big a difference.

Why only those 2?

Have to agree. You may want to diversify your choices and include a Tekin in there. Unmatched quality to date. And you really get your return on investment after that, along with a huge community to help you out.

Are those THE ONLY choices you have?

From what I have seen there is more performance difference between ESC's than the motors. I would suggest you stick with one of the newer generation of speedies optimised for more RPM for spec racing. This includes the Tekin RS using 1.89 firmware, the LRP SPX, and the SpeedPassion GT 2.0. These speedies will give you more legs down the straight.

I agree.
Choose one of them and you make the right choice.
I prefer the Tekin.
With the Hotwire and the 189 software you have the best speedo there is at the moment.

Hi Pedro
I think you go better with GM 90 or 120 ,better power ,PC upgrade and a great break.
I prefer GM ,instead of SPX because you can limit the power with PC and make a more precisely setup.
Burn motors is very dangerous when you dont have a choise to make a more smoother setup.

Best

With the right gear the SPX it's a lot faster than the GM.
