I've been using an RSpro/10.5-4.5T Redlines in my Touring cars for a coupple of years until june when bought a GT2pro 10.5/5.5T V3's and now starting to get used to it.
My local tracks are very hot during spring/summer seasons and i've had several thermal issues with the Tekin Esc. The RSpro and 4.5TRedline/GM's 5.5T motors were a good playing combo's but not something to race with, not safe with high temp's, Esc were thermaling to often.
Another thing i've noticed were that Redline motors were a PITA to set up with different Esc's then Tekin's ( tried with a GM Genius120 V2). The best thing about the Gt2 compared to the RSpro is the grunt it takes out of the motors ( whatever brand) and the consistency of the throttle response, something i apreciate particularly is how smooth is the Esc compared to the Rspro. The Rspro instead is very small, fast to tune up with it's two buttons set up but it's more nervous and not so reliable with many motors ( try use an Octawind and you'll see what i mean) , it lacks a card or something like it to tune it once at the Pit's, bringing a Pc is usefull but doesn't match the comfort of a card.
I still use Tekin ESC's for 1/8 Buggy and a Carisma Pro, nothing beat them in the class, wouldn't changed them for anything else.
For 1/10 Touring class i prefer only the Gm'sGenius to The GT2pro but i rather use it in a Pro10, it suits a whoole lot better than the S.P. counterpart (EVX)
