Boosted or blinky?

Blinky, there are dozens of options in your price range that will do the job.

Boosted, hobbywing is about your only option new, though I would try to find a deal on a used tekin.

For racing, no.

For bashing, yes.

Those are both good motors, but I would not recommend buying a used one. If you are looking for affordable, quality electronics check out Speed Passion.
