    very good combo i was looking at getting a peak jag 11 triple and streak ...i think it use to be called a novak racer a few years back and was novaks no2 esc,below the hammer pro
    better than any new novak exept mabey the cyclone or gt7 or ss system!and better than any esc less than twice it's price

    A Novac GT7 works well with almost every motor but its pricey.

    i think a 9-turn quad by fantom and the novak super rooster w/reverse is the best combined motor/esc.

    Hey....i also have a Futaba mc112b esc. I was wondering how many turns this is good for? I have been running it with an old 20t stinger and seems to handle it fine. Anybody know?
