The QC3 is not out yet. The Associated website says early December, but I'll beleive that when I see it. In the past for their top of the line ESC's, NOSRAM will have their version out first for 1-2 months prior to LRP 's version being available!
The NOSRAM version (Razor Evolution) of the QC3 has not yet been released.
I hope it is available in early December though (my QC2's are getting a little long in the tooth).
If you are making a decision on an ESC, please do not base your decision on someone who says that they had a QC2 and 2 laps into the first run it blew up!
Keep in mind that regardless of what brand ESC you buy, they will all blow up if hooked up incorrectly!!
I have never seen an ESC "blow up" that was actually hooked up correctly. There was a lot of people complaining about the QC2 blowing up on this forum when they first came out. I know 2 of the guys and there was countless other complaints at my LHS. I saw about 6 blow up my self and every single one of them were hooked up incorrectly.
I hae 4 LRP QC2's. 3 of them were from the first shippment into the US and they have been performing flawlessly since the day I got them!
Just buy a brand name ESC and you'll be fine. This is one area where I recommend spending as much as you can afford!
