    Depends on how fast you want to go, how much you want to spend, what battery capacity you have. If your just playing around, stay around 19 turns, good power and speed with good run time, all depends on your batteries though.

    If your running a Runner or stock ESC I'd regear and drop a 19tEpic Binary in, But if you upgrade to a Gt7 for example a 8t , 3300GP cells and regear.

    I got a nice ESC and motor combo offa towerhobbies awhile back. It was a towerhobbies speed secret motor 14x4 (I think) and a duratrax streak ESC. I hooked it up to 8 cells and my Ultima flew!! I think the motor was like $20 and the ESC was like $30, it was a pretty good deal for some serious speed.

    That Speed Secret comes in the 14turn and 19turn only, I've got 2 of the 14t that I rebiult. 8 cells ? do you mean 6 cells? And the streak that your talking about has a no motor limit and no reverse right? Try some 3300cells.
