Reedy since it already has a 12.5 mm rotor(for more torque coming out of corners). Very smooth power delivery. The rev techs are good too but need to be revved out a bit. I still reccomend getting a 12.5mm rotors for it as well.

I would choose a orion r10 pro ESC. I like the d3.5 motors myself, but the schuur speeds are great also. I know a lot of guys are running the orion at our club.
