Save yourself a good few pounds and go for the HobbyWing ExRun ESC at around £100 (or if you have to spend more money get the rebadged version at a higher price, circa £155, from Speed Passion).

Most people I know who have tried both find the HobbyWing/Speed Passion smoother and easier to set up.

As for motors that is down to personal preferences, I run Orion as they are super smooth and very fast too. I have used Speed Passion and they are good motors but a little less zippy than the Orions.

He's talking about the xerun sensored version, not the ezrun non sensored one. The xerun 120a is excellent and so easy to setup

Follow rogers link to Rie. They are expected in in a couple of weeks. Which is just as fast as you would get them off eBay. They are uk supply so you have someone in this country to talk to if anything goes wrong.

You were just advised from guys with experience to go for the Hobbywing, i would take the advice if i were you
I know of a few guys running Hobbywing 1/8th electric gear & they rate it very highly
Best i can see is £74.90 on ebay for the 120a with free p&p,pick up a good used 2nd hand brushless motor..job done

Are they not a bit big to fit under the 22 shell when in rear motor config.

I had mine in rear motor to start with using a 120a xerun, full size servo, spektrum sr3000 and 5000mah stick lipo. All went in no bother. Now in mid layout, that takes abit of imagination with positioning.

I originally wanted a Speed Passion speedo and then was also tempted by the LRP SXX.
Since I then found out that the Hoobywing is exactly the same as a Speed Passion, I've just ordered one from Racers in Exile :-)

Looking, the hobbywing is about 10mm larger than the lrp. So you'll have to make a decision on that.
Also racer in exicile have a 10% preorder discount which makes the 1s £90 so you would save £40 on the lrp and have a decent bit of kit.

I tried the preorder one for the Blue but couldn't get it to work... so I opted for the Black one instead, which they have got instock

Thinking about getting one in black is it worth getting the lcd program card also what 6.5t motor would people go for.

I believe they are very similar if not the same.

The advice I was given on motors is as follows. Speed passion are smoothest but not fastest. Orion are nearly as smooth with more top end. Lrp and Nosram are quite aggressive. I can not comment on the others but I'm sure people will have there own opinions and it depends what style of driving you like. (I have an Orion).

Speak to Stuart at RIE about the programmer. I'm not getting one with mine but can always buy one later if I want to tinker with settings and software further.
