Blinky refers to spec zero ESC timing. ESC typically has a blinking LED to indicate it is in the spec no boost mode.

Here's the list of ESCs currently approved by ROAR for blinky racing

I've personally been running a Tekin RS (Pro) in "blinky" buggy with a Team Powers 17.5 motor and been very happy with it.

I only race onroad. I owned a losi 22 for a couple of weeks, but decided offroad doesn't do it for me. I was running a tekin RS Pro with a duo3 motor, but it was an open class. I was using a 5.5

For blinky spec, I'm guessing the motor spec is 17.5??

I'd probably use a Tekin RS Pro and a Trinity ReVtech or D3.5 motor, mainly because I already own these items (a regular Tekin RS would do fine for this, I just have a Pro though)

In blinky TC, the 2 motors I just mentioned are top notch. Other great choices would be Reedy sonic, Thunderpower, Team Powers and I'm sure there are several others I'm forgetting. I don't imagine it would be much different for which motors perform well in blinky spec offroad classes.

Any of the ESCs on that list I posted should give similar overall power output, but the feel can be different between them.

I've run every top of the line esc, Orion wins hands down for smoothness, Tekin with the latest firmware is also good. Tough to beat any of the top 4 now really. Orion, Tekin, LRP V2's or the new Novak's.

Thanks for the information. I wondered what the blinky mode meant too.
