I run a 4.5 and can use full throttle on at least 2 infields sections, plus the straight. I run at Speedworld.

The LRP TC Spec Version 2 might be an option as well. Although I have not yet tried it with a 17.5 motor. But it works great in modified.

I am running the LRP SXX TC Spec V1, are you saying the new v2 will have "ramping"?

The Speed Passion 2.0 is pretty capable in both mod and stock.

I need to do some more tuning but right now my SP 2.0 with the 528 firmware is exactly the same speed as the local hot-shot Tekins in 17.5 and I haven't messed with the settings or gearing much yet. I think it might end up having a little more rip than the Tekin and slightly lower top end, but it holds its own. I have been running Tekin since v203 first came out but I wanted to try the SP to see how it compared.

Our Kinetic 2S is rated 3.5 and above---both mod and spec. It also features our new Sportsman mode for ROAR's new non-timing esc class.

It will adjust like the SXX Stock Spec with independent feel and boost settings.

Because it thermals... you even thermal it running a 7T if you start using dynamic timing.

It thermals when using anything lower than a 7 turn motor or, it thermals when using anything lower than a 7 turn motor when dynamic timing is engaged?

Took my 4.5t motor for a run after my stock race, using 528_Stock software with turbo (#12) turned off and having turbo kick in set at a late value, motor and esc were not reaching high temperatures.

+1

Is the Tekin able to run mod (5.5T) with no timing without thermaling?
