Default help me chose a new BL esc

I have a MM right now and I was compleatly happy with it untill I tryed a sphere sensored esc(sold), now my MM feals like a pos to drive

from what I can tell, the GTB is the most popular esc, it doesn't have to, but I would like it to run sensorless motors but it HAS to have PC/programing card capabilaties, so the GTB is out of the question

right now I'm looking at the venom pro esc, but venom isn't known to make quality stuff

the VXL esc also looks nice, even though it doesn't have PC programing, it doesn't have very many settings that I can _____ up.


I would like to keep it around $150-$200

LRP Sphere comp or Tekin RS the 2 best esc's out there in my opinion.
the LRP does not have computer programing.
The tekin has the hotwire for computer programing.
Tekin also runs in hybrid mode which is cool.


Greg the Mamba Max is a great ESC for the money but when it comes to 1/10 feel is everything. and you just don't get the feel that you get with a high quality esc like the tekin or lrp.

Do you want to give my ESC a try? I have 2 versions, one is a 100A and the other is a 200A. They come with a program card that is smaller then the ones Speed Passion offers. They are both a hybrid ESC that will work in sensored or sensorless mode. They come with 1yr warranty and I'm offering free shipping to lower 48 US states. PM me if you're interested and I'll send you a link that will show you pictures of them.

I'm personally go with the Novak Havoc combo. It's only $139 with 8.5 motor with sintered rotor. I personally don't like the VXL. The throttle control feels like crap.

I don't need a motor...


the tc spec is a little out of my price range so I would go with the reg. one

No, but the same company that did Losi's Xceliron sensored ESC, but mine has 2 MOSFET boards kind of like the Tekin RS Pro, Hybrid sensored/sensorless technology and a very small program box.

Spend the money and buy a Tekin RSPro and never look back.
