you should add LRP Sphere/Sphere Competition to the list... it's VERY smooth in brushed mode...

I second that...I have no reason to replace my tc2 (love the built in on/off button, and no orange smoke)

The models I posted are the current top and newer models and flagships of the brands listed.

Adding other models as suggestion is ok but it would be better to stick with the original topic.

I think that the kopropo stuff will prolly be a little better the others are just followers in my eyes dont here much about anything but gtx, twister, and kopropo wish are the same i think. there are no bad things about the gtx great esc bottom line.

I have 2 MRT MX Pro's and would not use anything else. MRT's service is second to none, The speedo has the one of the lowest resistance's I've seen, its has an amazing launch control function that has enabled me to get the jump on many off the starting blocks, is 100% waterproof guaranteed, no limit and retails at under 100 best bang for your buck!

The GTB is not considered one of Novak's "flagship" ESC's??? It's specs are as good as or better than the GTX.

The GTB is not on the list because the topic is about brushed only ESCs.

i have novak GTX and Ko VFS-1 competition. Both are good ESCs but GTX is more user friendly with the pre-programmed profile. I once hooked the battery in reverse polarity for a few seconds and it didn't cause any problem to GTX, while my friend killed 2 VFS-1 competition in a week, 1 was because of reversed polarity, another was a shortcut.... ouch
