if your planning on not going to anything faster a novak explorer would be a good chance but if you eventually want to go faster you would want a better esc.

If your only going into drifting, you cant go wrong with any of the Duratrax Intellispeed line of ESC's. There reliable and very cheap.

Like Javen13 said, Novak's are excellenct also.

Just about every ESC is fine with a 27t stock "motor". The ESC will handle it.

the more $$ you spend the better the esc as in smoother and punchier throttle and braking along with diffrent profiles depending on the type of motor basicly any esc will work with a stock motor like yours but if you plan on getting a diffrent motor in the future you may want to purchase a better esc now ratter having to get a new one when you get a faster motor(if you get one a stock motor is really all you need for driffting).

OK...I think there's some kind of misunderstanding here...LOL

MORE turns = less power...you can use just about any ESC to run a 27T motor.

LESS turns = more power...you need a more expensive ESC to run more powerful motors.

For a 27T stock motor (like a P2K2 Pro, or stock Yokomo), just about any ESC will do the job. If you think you might want to get a more crazy motor in the future, you need to get a decent speed control now...unless you want to buy a cheaper one now and have to buy another (more expensive) one later.

Just buy the cheapest controller you see.... You dont' need any fancy features nor the ability to handle LOW turn motors... I don't get drifting, but to each his own.....
