So what's the 'preferred' motor for 1/12th scale (13.5 or 17.5)? Any mfg. preferences?
Folks still running Dbl pinks all around or something similar? Yellow rears/Dbl. pink frt perhaps?

Oh you be quiet! haha

Yes, we are working on an ESC to be plug and play for 1s racing. No external pack or booster needed. As far as I know, It'll be very similar to how the Novak Havok 1s works, so it's not drastically different than anything else that is accepted as "ok" on the market. No tricks, no fouls, just another ESC built for a specific application.

Just so you guys know about revisions. Many ESC manufactures make small updates and don't say anything about it. Usually they are small software and hardware changes. So at the beginning when a product is released, dont be surprised if they change slightly later on. I remember I've taken ESC apart in the past and noticed that one I had for a year was different internally than one that was bought recently. It's pretty interesting.

It's supposed to be a pretty sweet radio. Has a lot of the same technology as it's bigger brothers. I would see if you can hold one though... they feel a little odd compared to some other radios. The original non 2.4ghz version of it was my first radio ever, and it was a solid performer.

Isn't there a deal right now where you get two of those receivers on a special promotion right now when you buy that radio.
