Yes, it will be sensored but some you'll need to know/answer some of these questions to in turn get your answer:

1) By spec, do you mean the more generic "17.5 stock" or literally spec, as in you have a list of eligible equpiment for your track/class?
2) Blinky?
3) Budget?

Tekin RS and a Tekin Redline Gen2 17.5T if it fits in your budget. I think with this combination you can gear it like crazy... Tower does not list a combo deal... yet...

That is also a terrific option. I have 3 brushless hobbies ESCs and for 67 bucks have more than enough settings to keep me guessing....

If you are trying to stay in budget spend the money on a good quality motor. Something like a Trinity D3.5, Revtech, Reedy Sonic or something of that level. Not excluding any others as there are a lot of good brands on the market.

Hobbywing, Speed Passion and others make great budget level ESCs that perform great and have the settings you need at a great value. Hobbywing Just Stock ESC can be had at a great prices.

Good Luck.

For 17.5 I would go Speed Passion Reventon S or Reventon R and a Reedy Sonic 17.5T. This is honestly one of the smoothest powerband systems I have driven. The Tekin motor with Speed Passion is just as good. You can put together a brand new system for less than 150.00. It looks like the Speed Passions R and S are still out of stock. You could go with the Stock Club Race ESC (keep in mind this is a blinky only ESC).
