Default LRP/Speed passion questions....

Hey guys I have 2 setups 1st is an LRP sphere competition tc spec with novak 3.5 motor, and 2nd is Speed Passion pro v2 (carbon black) with Orion Vortex 2.5

My questions are:

1. Can any one of these speed controls run a 1/8 brushless motor (mamba monster etc..)?

2. Will any of these setups run in an 1/8 onroad mugen, kyosho etc..?

3. What's the most powerful battery that can be used on either esc?


I know its a lot of questions but I've searched with no luck so now I'm asking the experts.

Thanks in advance.

if you are going to run it in a 1/8th scale I would recommend that you use a ESC designed for 1/8th scale ( since they weight alot more)

You need a 1/8 esc more so in that they will be able to run the higher voltage required for 1/8 vehicles. The most popular being 14.8v (4s).
I would suggest using a Hobbywing Xerun 80amp or 150amp or the Tekin RX8
