We have quite a few combos with Havoc ____ escs, with an SS Pro 17.5 motor or a Ballistic 17.5 motor. Which combo are you considering? Including this RMF combo for club racing.

I allready own all 4 items..
just trying to figure out which one will be a smidge faster.
i know the novak rep isnt going to say that the lrp is a faster motor
:P

im really happy with my 1c novak system in my 12scale. and ill be happy with the novaks in my tc. just curious if the lrp w/ the castle will be more/less speedy.

i really do like being able to plug my esc into my laptop and change settings really easy

ROAR-approved Spec wind motors are pretty much the same, performance-wise; as for escs, performance is generally related to the on-resistance of the MOSFETs used in the controller; lower on resistance translates into cooler electronics and better performance.

We know a lot of guys are involved with club racing and need to keep their costs down---therefore the RMF combo above. Here is a link to all of our BL combos; the one you ordered may have a Ballistic motor.
