The current ones are:
VFS-1 Pro
VFS-1 Pro Competition
VFS-2
VFS-FR
and all the other versions such as
Hara Twister
Corally MMS
Rayspeed/Yokomo Masami
Tamiya Volac

Here is the page with all the info on them: http://kopropo.com/ESC.htm
Honestly, you would be just fine with the VFS-2 or FR, they are cheaper but offer the same adjustability.The reason they are cheaper is because of the FETs, but unless you are running insane mod motors and batts, it's not going to be a problem. All the speed controls come with a cap and diode.

Also, if you can find the older VFS-2000 version for pretty cheap (I got mine for 70 bucks including the setting adapter), that's a good deal as long as you don't mind a slightly bigger esc.

Another vote for the MRT MX here. I've had one since they came out and it has NEVER given me any problems. Really easy to use and reliable and a very good price.

It says it all on the link I posted. Whatever.
The Pro Competition is the exact same except with a higher thermo cutoff and CF design case. The VFS-2 is the exact same except with less FETs.

I still doubt that the speed control is your problem. Before you buy another speed control you should see if someone would trade esc with you to test yours.

Your batts are on the low side of todays cells. What car and gearing are you using? hOW OFTEN DO YOU CUT THE COMM? What brushes/ springs?

VSF1 pro and comp is for those who like to spend alot of time programming and more money on programmers. Most people don't like to do that much on the esc. NOT RECOMMENDED for nebies.

That's what I was saying, but he wants to know about the top end esc's. I'm not going to tell him how to spend his own money...
But yes, the VFS are really meant for people who want to fine tune everything. Not worth it if you don't really even tune your motor.

was sold on the Tekin G11pro i was using... simple to use out of the box(didn't care much about the programming since i'm a noob and didn't know squat on what and how to program it). well, i was sold on it until i accidentally burned it.

using a Novak GTX now... seems fine. I like that its small and lightweight... the power cap is just a hassle to mount. but everything is pretty much fine once you do.

The MX Pro is very easy to set up and use. Having power profiles with both fixed frequency and also variable frequency that are preset for stock and modified etc makes it simple to get it right, just set and forget! For those that want to fine tune everything we have a separate programmer option coming.

If you don't feel like fine tuning everything on the KO, you can always just download profiles off their website. One thing I applaud KO for is that almost all their current equipment is PC-connect compatible, so you can manage everything on your PC. I would still check your motor though. Get good brushes, keep the comm true, align the brush hoods correctly and make sure the bushings and armature spin smoothly.

As far as I know, KO VFS-1 Pro Competition. It is the same as atsushi hara twister 2.1. All the others are copies of the VFS-1 pro (NOT comp).

I think there is a slight difference on the profile between KO Propo VFS-1 Pro Comp and Hara 2.1. I'm not sure.
