Sure, its competitive. But it may not be the best suited for what you need. Since you are looking for an ESC for your 1/12th scale, you may want to try something smaller, as room will be limited. Also, a smaller ESC will weigh less. THe Dually is considered one of Novak's racing ESCs. Basically, Novak had the GT7 and the Dually. Then, the GTX came out to replace the GT7. Now, the GTS will be coming to replace the Dually. Here's a comparison:
GT7 = 0.00058 on-resistance, 1300 discrete forward steps, 6.0 volt BEC, 640 Amps rated current, 1-11 kHz Drive Frequency, no motor limit, 0.93 ounces
GTX = 0.00034 on-resistance, 1300 discrete forward steps, 6.0 volt BEC, 700 Amps rated current, 1-23 kHz Drive Frequency, no motor limit, 0.64 ounces
Dually = 0.00070 on-resistance, 256 discrete forward steps, 6.0 volt BEC, 400 Amps rated current, 7.8 kHz or 1.0 kHz Drive Frequency (hence the name Dually), no motor limit, 2.10 ounces
GTS = 0.00040 on-resistance, ??? discrete forward steps, 5.0 volt BEC, 540 Amps rated current, 1.2 kHz Drive Frequency, 12-turn motor limit, 0.74 ounces
Frankly, I like having the low drive frequency because I drive Stock. But, if I were running a low-wind modified, I'd really want a higher frequency. The GTS doesn't do that. The Dually also has a current limiter for those low-bite situations when you want to keep wheel-spin under control.
For 1/12th scale, my first choice would be a GTX or some other high-end small-size ESC like a Tekin G-11 Pro (whenever it finally comes out), an LRP Quantum Comp 2, a Hara Twister, a KO Propo VFS-1, etc. They're all really good ESCs that are competitive. If price is an issue, check out Novak's remanufactured GT7s through their website.
