Default Suggestion for speed controller.

I need a suggestion for a speedcontroller for use with Stock motors and 19 Turn, something cheap but solid.
How are people getting along with the cheap Duratrax speedcontrollers, I have heard they are crap !

A budget ESC will get you so far.....lets say that one or someday, you get much better at your driving skills and or you just want ot go faster. A budget ESC will hinder that in a huge way. Assume you spend 60-70 bucks on a decent ESC, then you get bored with your current setup and decide to upgrade for....say....Top of the line. Well, you're already out 70 bucks! Seriouesly, a really nice ESC will save you hastle and money in the long run.

Just my opinion though.

This is for my sons B4, it will be used as a backyard playing around car with stock or 19 turn motor.
Myself I have GM V12xc, Tekin G10 and more.

If It's going in a B4,I would look for a Novak Dually,You can get them for a good price,no motor limit,easy to set up,only knock is they are on the big side..but if you use a G10..its small..
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

If you want something brand new, Novak's XRS will handle the job, and it's well under $100 (I believe the Hobby People stores sell them for $54.99).
