The black Tamiya ESC will get the job done. It doesn't have any current limiters, so you will still get good power. A real race ESC will be better though because of lower internal resistance and less voltage drop across the fets. Also, adjustable drive frequency will really help wake up the motor. The lower the frequency, the more punch.

It's just something to think about upgrading in the future...

Default ta05 gearing

When you say more speed on short straights and less on long ones, I assume you mean faster acceleration? If so, ask the other racers what ratio they are using, and use the chart below to work out which pinion gear you need (the stock spur is 70t).



Hope this helps
