I'm a racer so i'm just trying things out and by reducing weight you get higher RPM's. Without gas engine my evo is about 14 lb and this leopard motor is a 10 horsepower motor. The gas engine in it now is the G230 Zenoah 23cc. I want to see if i can get longer run times on it to. And, trying to go past 70 would be a bonus don't you think. That Rovan setup looks good. Thanks

the redcat rampage chimera gas version is 23 pounds....Id guess that the electric version is about the same weight as your FG.
The chimera has a similar system to the rovan, and does 40mph on generic 3s lipo packs.
The fg is onroad, so you could likely gear it for 50mph.
Granted, as you say 70mph is better, but Id think 50mph would be enough....at least for me.
here is a FG onroad running 12s, he uses a MGM controller.....another vid of a losi 5ive running 12s also used a MGM controller. is that the expensive controller you had found before?
