I'm guessing it will basically be the updated VFS-1 Pro Competition 2 that KO brought to the worlds. Updates include CPU and mapping to help with the recent advantages in cell and motor technology to give a more efficient drive frequency.
Has anyone got anymore info on KO's new shottky diode pack btw?

I don't think this will sell for more than $212USD.
the 2.1 already sells for $140 or less from Tower.
even cheaper with the discount code.

My thoughts exactly. Practice is priceless.

the difference between the 2.1 VFS and 2.2 VFS (for any company rebadging the VFS line of escs) are the following:
- remapped drive frequencies adjusted for today's motors and batteries (i.e. more punch)
- new FETs for better performance
- drag brake feature for stand up, or laydown brushes.

I wonder how the drive frequencies will look like.... compared to the pro comp 1. damn i barely ran the pro comp 1 even 50 times.

there are new FETs in it? i wonder how do those improve the stats, the ratings for other things were the same

Sorry, what's the difference between standup/laydown brushes such that it will require a different brake feature?

If everyone stops buying.Then there will be a slow down.

I agree with you that we should spend more $$ on tires for more practice. Practice can surely cut down more lap times than new stuff!!! (I'm still running on 2yr old 3700s ,waiting for my IB4200s WCE)
