my point is, we all have our own individual stories, and I am not sold, or convinced that anyone that wasn't already at the top of thier game suddenly jumped two or three spots with a simple esc change.

sure its one of the those must haves now. and i'm sure it helps, but if everyone has one, does it matter in the long run.
I know the debate will rage on, but I don't think the motors in this silvercan/black can class made a significant enough difference for performance. They were as close as possible and I think other things made a lot more difference than the motors. Having low power at the tap meant you had to make sure everything else was in perfect nick to make the most of the little power available. That's why a small problem or tiny setting error made a big difference. People of course blamed the motors because it's easier than chasing the perfect setup, but I don't buy it.
