Thanks Joel...

I thought TORC had a stock class.

Which motor and ESC combo do you recommend for someone getting into electric wanted to run at both tracks with minimal changing of parts (want to have fun than to compete).

P.S. My car will be a HPI Pro 2

If your running in a stock class even though you have run nitro im sure you will not feel slow running with 8 cars on a tight indoor carpet track.

If your running outdoors wich i think you are? PLRC member i think? The ya u need a mod motor, you club runs open rules..
well i hear the p2k2 is good for off-road buggies , but when it comes to 1/10th racing it's just slow. My experience with this motor was that i lost on the straights. That's where i would lose my leads most of the time. But now that i'm using the fantom: monster motor i feels i have more of an advatage. If you look at the p2k2 motor you'll see the numbers arent that great .

rose: Every track is different. There is no motor that fits all tracks. The p2k2 is the hot ticket at our track it seems. For me i have a 40lb trigger finger so i cant baby a low torque high rpm motor. Give me a p2k/p2k2 so i can squeeze.

I like that motor in my TC and buggy

Whew - alright already, maybe the P2K2 isn't the motor he needs. I'venever ran one myself, only heard a few things about it. I drive primarily Monster stocks and they are a great all-around motor, this I know from personal exp.

Think so? i was keeping up to the TQ on the straights at my last race. i guess we'll chalk that up to gearing though
