For boosted MOD, I have used the GT 2.0 LPF with a 7.5 V3 motor and had great success but I would go with the GT 2.0 PRO if you plan to run lower motor winds for MOD.

If you are running boosted "spec", so 10.5, 13.5, 17.5, etc... any of the ESC's (GT2.0 PRO, GT2.0 LPF, or GT 2.1) will work great.

8.5 depends on how much of timing you are using...if running with boost, different story...

Got an issue with my club racer 21.5 SP motor/ESC. I slid into the barrier sideways on the ESC side (its in an F103W) didn't hit the electronics though and since then the red light (low battery voltage) light blinks. Also, the motor wouldn't run unless you spun it by hand. I picked up another 21.5 motor, recharged the Lipo and I still get the red blinking light. I reset the ESC per the instructions and still it blinks. Swapped out the sensor wire too. Batteries are charged and work fine in other cars. Ideas?

Thanks

PS. Just got a new Cirtirx ESC in. Hooked it up and I still have the flashing red light. Now I'm really confused...

Can I use the 2.1 Prostock ESC (not EX) in a 1S WGT car with 6.6v LiFe Receiver Pack or is it better with a TQ booster (red lead only)?

Any one have a WGT 13.5 setup using which software? Gearing/ rollout? Motor? (I have a nemesis right now). Any starting point would be great!
