well your not really gonna get out super cheap but the tekin combo is good...lrp is pretty good but if your club allows 17.5 boosted then tekin is a winner for sure

I have to say and yes I am a little bias towards them but Viper hands down....
I have been running viper for awhile now and their motors are really solid....
The speed control is a investment and you need to go by feel and what you want out of a speed control and what you plan to do with it.
the viper motor runs well with any speed control and I like their speed controls and still learning it as I have been running the rs pro for ages now.

Hope this helps and shot me a email to find out more about viper if you like.

Corally motors sold in uk by mike at modeltech.co.uk not sure if he sends abroad?

Like i said, for outright speed, this motor and the hobbywing esc will walk over anything by a country mile! I've just got a black diamond esc to try with the corally as I've heard they are a match made in heaven!

Novak has always been on the heavy side. I'd reccomend a Novak or Speed passion motor and the Tekin esc. weight savings!
