Pretty worthless in boosted? You joking?? They are not brca legal here but most places still let you run them, if running outdoors and against a corally with a boosted speedo, unless you've got the same motor you have zero hope of keeping up! Indoors it's not such an advantage as you can't use all it's power.

Before all this boost thing started, everyone used the Corally motors here in Denmark. But nobody used them through the boost-era. Now that we are back at zero timing, everybody uses them again.

But that was in the indoor season, so that might be it. But IMO the feel is terrible in a Corally. No real throttle control.

And on top of that, some ESC's (like the Tekin) can't even run with the Corally - though you can get lucky and get one that does.

Get the speedo set up ok and you'll have no problem with it. Only the tekins cant run it, all others can.

I run a hobbywing and it's an awesome combo, don't get me wrong, not the easiest motor to handle but that's where skill comes into it defo the fastest without question.

It's more powerful, has much more acceleration and is much quicker, anything that's quicker is harder to drive

You might be on a step learning curve, from what I have seen of 13.5 pro reds, they are totally bonkers If you have the driving skills to use one then nothing can touch them, if not you will need a deep pocket to buy spares for your broken car
