I just bought a new losi xcelorin 21.5 off of ebay and love it. I set tq twice and the fastest lap in two of the three qualifiers and in the main. VTA class. Watch out for the crawler version.

Have heard the new revtech 21.5 is stout. Lots of torque, not quite as much top end. Just add gear to make it go.

Z3R is good with blinky speedie because of the amount of timing you can get out of it (had two jerk-offs complain that the one I had was too fast)

Tekin or X12 for boosted classes as they can take the heat better (better quality)

BTW, up to early this year, I have tested every 21.5..

I hear the Corally 21.5 has a very strong magnet, so strong that the rotor is hard to turn without a pinion on it.

That said, the redline motor range will be out soon with a 2nd generation series, these are going to be good...
