Guys - I upgraded my senton with a Castle 2200Kv and now they are installing a HobbywingMax8 Combo in my KratonV2. My LHS told me to stay away from the 17T and upgrading the motor & esc will give me even more performance without stressing out the system with the high speed pinion. Too much heat and it messes with the motor - I think George said it messes with the coils or something.

Thoughts? They have always told me to stay away and preserve my trucks....

getting ready to watch the Giants crush them Eagles.....
