I went to my track and was told I would be better off getting an LRP and was also told none of the TOP drivers for the Reedy Race ran the SP esc so can someone give me the good, bad or indifferent on this esc. Why you think it would be or would not be a good purchase. I will be running stock since I am a novice. Thanks in advance.
I've got 2 gtb's and i was seriously considering buying the losi because it was cheap hehe
, then i saw it won the reedy race, but to be fair schreffler and fairtraice can drive a taco around the track and win.
Since then teh Tekin RS has been released, and I decided to go with them. I have a Tekin RS (i run 13.5 class pretty much exclusively) on order, it's super small (roughly 2/3 the size of the sp or gtb) and coupled with the hotwire it is very adjustable. It has lots of blinking lights and neat whizz bang stuff that i can blame for making me lose (winning has NOTHING to do w/ driving skill!!
it's all about the blinky lights
The other guy at my track w/ a losi and SP used to run LRP and he switched over but again ... he can win driving on 3 wheels (actually has done that) so I'd say the difference in the gear at the level you are shopping at really doesn't mean much unless you are two-tenths slower than andy moore. There are a couple of guys who use the lrp and they are fast and a couple of guys who use the sp and they are fast, the novak crowd ... not so much
I'll let you know how the Tekin RS fits in the car and runs and such in about a week, this coming saturday will be my first day with it on the track.
