Default Tazz, Mega or Astro?

I was wondering witch motor will run the best. I have a 400X w/ a brushless, an XT and a 400 but i was going to buy a new set up and didn't want to buy a Tazz if a XS runnin a Mega or Astro would be better. I don't know anyone that flies and have only seen videos of the Tazz so I was just lookin for some input on the fastest set up. THANKS---

I fly my XS with a Mega 1615/4 and it is a very nice setup... runs fine on the stock batteries... really screams on my Kokam 2000mAh, 15C, 3s1p pack

The 4T Mega works great with the XS airframe. A 6x4 APC prop is a good prop as well, seeing that your at a pretty low elevation there in Michigan.
I like the Mega's myself.

Happy Flying!

run a 7x5 apc e prop with 8-9 cells and it will come alive. if a 3cell lipo, drop to a 6.5x5.5 apc or graupner race prop and watch it come alive for speed. just make sure your speed control and servos are strong enough to handle the extra speed and amp draw of the lipo.
