Default esc descision time

im looking at getting a new esc.but im a little confused at the minute as most companies have top class units.
im going to be running 19t carpet class.

please if you have an opinon on what to use and why? please take the time to explain the benefits of the system.what features make this the one!
is it easy to set up? size? weight?programing? specifications in laymans turms would be good!!!! as all the hype from the companies leave me a little bewildered?

i have some esc,s in mind but would like to hear about peaples experiences as i want to make the right choice first time.

what i dont want is halfhearted bitchy comments to others opinions.thanks..

well let me preface by saying I am a newb at elec. TC. I did however decide on a Novak GTX. Programming is a snap, and the footprint is tiny. As you know TC's are coming so compact that the smaller the electrics the better. The GTX also comes with a capacitor which helps with power delivery. I have only used for about a month but so far so good.

I've had the Novak GTX, Keyence Pro-Rapida and MRT MX Pro and I would say the best all round ESC is the MRT. You may only be racing on carpet now, but when the summer comes, you'll want to be racing outside and with our unpredictable weather you'll want a proven waterproof ESC and the MRT is just that. It has all the power/brake profile features you want and the launch control is a must-have. You'll never look back once you've run one. Plus it's tiny, it's cheap (relative to the GTX and Keyence) and it's British!

From a post I put on another thread about the MRT Team Spec (which is the more expensive version, around 150);

Paraphrasing from the manual;

Neutral Options;
Brake minimum settings in neutral (Drag Brake)(6 levels)
Auto Roll (or Creep) 6 Settings from 3-20%

Battery Type, voltage cutoff protection for Lipo users

18 power profiles, 6 lower frequency and 6 higher frequency profiles.
