Thanks for the info.

OK, I've got something to test. Got a sensorless motor and esc installed. The motor is rated 3300 kV. Got no idea how it should compare to the 17.5T because none of those I've got have listed...

I'm just getting into carpet oval. There are two excellent ones that have good turnouts for Legends. Neither of them enforce any rules to speak of. They allow the break-out format to take care...

Looks like I need to find a sensorless motor/esc.

According to the instruction sheet, the ESC comes with 0% drag brake.
The ESC is one of those "beepers" so it isn't easy to tell what the settings are, and harder to set them. A couple of Reedy...

ex. 17.5T ~ 2500KV
