It depends on what speedo youwill get and are you going to a club or not, if you are joining a club, see what they race first before buying.

If you are not going to a club, a 6.5/8.5t is plenty enough to start for power and torque.

I just bought a JL10e as well. For a power plant I went with a Novak Havoc 3s esc and a Novak 6.5 SS Pro motor. They are both remanufactured units but they carry the same warranty their new stuff comes with. I use the same esc/motor combo in my 10th scale 4wd buggy. I've had good luck with it and liked the balance of torque and speed so I decided to use it again in the JL10e. Might pick up a 17.5 for some club racing.

with new technology you can race a 10.5 or 13.5t nearly as fast as a 5.5t.

Think that if you go for something "hot" like a 4.5t for exemple, you will need a good speedo that can take lower wind, battery packs that can take the extra power without melting, and a chassis that is made for top speed where you will not chew or melt differential gears.

And from what I see (and I do not know that model) this is not a top chassis with his centre shaft.

get a good combo speedo/motor with variable timing in say 10.5t and some good batteries 2s in 60C to get good power, the size of battery (3800/6200) is more for the lengh of time you want to run your car.

then depending on your buying, make sure you run a good ratio not to burn everything.

The first setup I had in my JL was a Castle 5700Kv. It was plenty fast. The setup I have in it right now is a HobbyWing 5.5T; on 3S it's borderline uncontrollable.

check here: http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...a-jl-10-e.html

that thread has a lot of useful information on different setup, gearing, etc. Once you decide on the motor/ESC setup - just make sure your temps stay within the normal operating range (as per the Mfg) of your setup. Also, if you decide on a modified motor - stock up on diff gears, thrust bolts, outdrives, etc. My spur is still intact but I have replaced the rear diff multiple times.

Talking Ofna 1/10 JL-10 GT

I have a Venom Lipo 3s and was wondering if it will fit in the Ofna 1/10 JL-10 GT. I just ordered it with a Venom LiPo 2S 1P 7.4V 2000mAh 20C 1/16 and realized, after I confirmed the order that it's meant for a 1/16 scale. Should I return the 2s and will the 3s fit?

Get the Speed Passion CitrixClup Spec speed control and 17.5 BL motor combo for under $90. Got mine from A-Main Hobbies and it works great.
