Default Novan 13.5 what ESC to run

Just bought my first road car thinking it will give me something to do this winter indoors. Bought a T4 with a Novak 13.5 turn brushless but need to buy an ESC. Any suggestion as a good match up for this motor. Thanks in advance.

What is the track like? If you do not use above an 8.5 motor, go for the novak havoc, or the havoc 3 cell. I have yet to have any issues from my novak esc. I have herd that mamba is coming out with a censored system, but I have yet to hear of a release date.

My 2 cents.

Go with a Tekin RS or RS Pro ESC, if you want to fully unlock the potential of your motor.
