Recently I was looking for the same thing. Several people recommended I go to http://www.raidentech.com/ekeshiqu20aa.html or http://www.raidentech.com/30aeshiquaie.html they have up to 50 amp if needed. Electrify's brushed esc is about $40.00 You'll find the above at about a third of that price.

For a speed 600 you will want a 25 amp ESC. Depending on what battery and prop you are going to ue you might be able to use smaller but 25 should be adequate.

$35

$18 This is the ESC for the Spectra. Uses the same motor

If you are using 6 to 8 cells you will be fine. If you are using LIPO pack you will want an ESC that has a LVC that can be set for lipos. The first one can be set for Nixx or Lipo packs.

There are a number of GWS ESC on this page. Some for NiXX and some for Lipo use.
