    Easily tekin. Anything tekin or castle is better than velenion. There is probably more that I don't know about.

    The Tekin is sensored so it would have to be the Tekin. Tekin also beats Castle (gasp).
    My Black & Blue Rally is faster than your color...

    Rx8 with a 4000kv or 4600. Or just get a Novak 4.5 with a havoc pro esc. Both are insane on the track. Both programmable.

    RX8 is the only esc to go with that.

    If you want to race 2s and play around a little on 3s then go with the 4000kv you will get a little more play time on 3 s before temps get to high and def +1 on rx8, you will never have to worry about the esc!

    A mamba max pro esc with the 2400 motor. Or a Novak havoc pro esc with a 5.5 550 motor. Won't tear your truck up.

    You'll also need to do quite a bit of soldering with the Tekin; motor wires, bullet connectors, esc plug, esc wires etc...

    Castle: esc plug and bullet connectors.

    Not sure, I've never tried 3s in any of my cars/trucks. Too afraid of the carnage that might follow, lol. Would like to try 3s in the funny car though.

    I always keep those for emergency replacements in my cars/trucks. Or for a future Frankenstein style build.

    eBay has brand new pro4 4000kv for 139, free shipping. Rx8's run about 180, I bought 2 from same seller on eBay. I only buy brand new on eBay, it's mostly hobby shops.

    I run my slash 4x4 on 2s with a 4000kv motor geared 15/52. Good for my track. You would need 5mm pinions. The best advice though is to go talk to some guys at the track you want to race at and see what they (the experienced ones) run! Will save you time and maybe money because what set ups run from track to track will be different depending on track style. It's fun and addicting! Good luck!
