Default One of THOSE questions... Sorry

Ok, I have a choice between a Tekin 17.5 Motor or an LRP 17.5. Using it in a 1S pan car.... What is the "go to" motor?

If money is not an issue I'd go for the Tekin, but they're pretty damn equal in performance.. But how cool is the red and silver??

I like Tekin ESC's, but would go LRP on the motor.

This.

If the Tekin motors were a 'go to' for anything RC racing other than club budget, you'd see a LOT of pros using them. Sadly, this is not the case.

The Tekins are very good with the right set-up, but the LRP is a touch better.
