Default Which brushless setup for Xray T2R Pro?

Hi

I'm considering upgrading the setup in my Xray T2R Pro. I'm now running a 19t brushed setup and I would like to get some brushless power now.

I'm looking at the following setup's:

http://www.ebay.de/itm/Brushless-Set...item27bf16bad1

http://www.ebay.de/itm/Brushless-Set...t=RC_Modellbau

I'm not planning on racing it, just running some training laps of my own on our local track. I'm going to run it on Turnigy 5000mah 2S 40c lipo's and occasionally on 6 and 7 cell nimh's.
To me the 5,5t sensored setup with a 120a ESC seems like good value for money. But is it going to be too much for the Xray?
And I guess that a sensored setup is preferable over a sensorless?

Let me know what you think? I don't have much experience with brushless setup's (been more into nitro).

Thanks!

The Ezrun combos are very very good.....IF you can find one that isnt a fake
the Ezrun 9t/35A is very fast & cheap & very reliable . A great starter kit. Ive had a few .

Get at least a Hobbywing\Xerun\ezrun esc , unless you are certain about those generic looking esc's in your links. I wouldnt touch em.
5.5T may be too much , honestly you dont need it.

heres another option (as good as Ezrun kit)

Hi

Yes, Ezrun is also a part of my consideration. Like the kit i linked to with a 60 amp esc. and 9T motor.
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/EZRUN-COMB...d=275210331013

Yes, I am a little concerned about that 120 amp/5,5T kit, as it seems to be a "no-name" setup. So maybe you're right that it's best to keep away from that. A 5,5T is probably also too much for a small TC (unless you're a pro).
I know Hobbyking, only problem is that the import taxes here in Denmark are sky high, when importing goods from Hong Kong (or anywhere outside of EU/Europe). So unfortunately, Hobbyking is not an option for me.
Since i'm going to run it on 2S lipo's, I'm planning to find the fastest kit on 2S and at a resonable price. But I guess the 9T/60amp esc is fast enough on 2S?

What about the difference between sensored and sensorless setup's? Sensored isn't really that much better or?

By the way, I have also looked at this setup:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/EZRUN-COMB...item3cba669336

Do you know this? I can see that it is a 8,5T motor instead of a 9T, but it is only 4000KV rating instead of 4300KV. To me those two combo's seem to be very close in performance. But the 9T should do 300 more revs per volt.

Just figured out, that the 9T motor is more like a 380-size motor and the 8,5T is a "real" 540-size motor. Guess the 8,5T is the better choice then?

Thanks!
