    Question with which the system will reach 120mph ?

    hi

    I would like to exceed 120mph for a real record, my friends tell me to replace the Mamba esc with xl2 and go to 8s.
    now I know what I can get going to 8s with the mamba xl2 and reach my goal.
    do you think is the best choice esc mounting the xl2? or in the market there is something even more 'powerful that I can exceed the speed' of 120mph?

    thanks

    Well There is more powerfull Like a MGM X series esc that could take 16s Lipo.
    There is a good chance of passing 120 with an XL2 and a 2200kv motor. There is also a good chance the motor will implode.

    Some guys have mounted the esc xl2 our x0-1, but I have not seen anybody who has exceeded 100mph.
    for this I have many doubts in buying the esc xl2

    I would try the Kershaw Designs setup. Hopefully I will stop being lazy and install mine by the end of the month.

    I'm sure they have but blew the tires off at 60 crashed and smashed their new 8s lipos they had zipped tied in. It's not something to write home about.

    I seriously doubt it, but hope not.
