Default Which Tekin esc with a Novak 550 5.5 and 2s lipo

I've had 2 Novak Havoc's and a Castle MMP all go bad in my Jammin in the last month.... I'm tired of DNF's & DNS's at the Track.
So I'm switching to Tekin

I already have Both a Tekin RX8 and a Tekin RS Pro.....
and cant decide which one to use in my Jammin SCRT with a Novak 550 5.5 and Turnigy 4500mah 2s

The RS pro would be easier to mount,
but the RX8 might be more reliable in the long run.....

So Which One??????????

I would check one of the Tekin threads . I remember someone else asking the same thing and think Randy said if used RS Pro you would need 2 caps .

I ran a RS Pro in my Hyper SC truck with a 550 BL motor and it worked flawlessly

I would trust the RS Pro any day of the week over that RX8. The RX8 is good but I have never seen a Pro fail

I would use the RX8 if it is the new version with the 3 hole case. if not use the RSPro, but servo tape a small fan next to it blowing onto the solder posts.
