Default On Road VTA?

I am still new to the on road scene and was wondering what motor/ESC combo would be great to start out in on road racing. Something that has great acceleration but also good top end. Im thinking about running it in the local oval track then moving to a bigger track. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

P.S I will be running a HPI Sprint 2 Flux roller with upgraded Schumacher threaded shocks if that helps...

All onroad classes other than the open mod classes have specific motors you have to run to be legal. VTA is a spec class. USVTA uses 25.5 Novak motors and non timing ESCs with no ability to update the firmware. It's a slow class. To get a little more top end on larger tracks, people just gear to a lower FDR.

Go to the tracks you plan to race at and ask about the various classes and what equipment is allowed.

You can try the VTA thread in the on-road section.... just be careful what you say, or the "those aren't the rules!!! police" will come down on you "

J/K... but as for an ESC, the Hobbywing Justock is a good, cheap option. I have been running one in VTA and it is good.
