    MMM ESC yes. MMM combo or XL2 combo is just dumb. Too much weight will ruin the acceleration and controlling all that torque will be a challenge at startup.

    OOOOHH, I haven't seen a Quark ESC pic in a long time.

    BTW, use some good batteries with the XL2. Low C rate batts will destroy the ESC when a high load is called upon. Use the best connectors...

    I ran a 2.5T in mine. Ran just fine. The difference was that my motor had the built-in fan. Even ran a 2.5T motor in a 6lbs offroader. You just have to pick the right components to make it work.
