Default looking for new ESC

Im currently running the GTX, and im looking to get another ESC for my other car. I saw the new line of ESC's from Tekin, and I also saw the MRT as well. What are your thoughts on these 3? The pro's and con's for each one. I love the GTX: how small it is, how easy to use. But i dont know if there's one better.

Chris

In my opinion, the GTX is the only choice. I've tried other brushed ESCs, in terms of quality and durability, Novak has always been the best. I currently own three GTXs and one GTB.

BTW- I paid retail price for all of them

You already have the best brush motor speed controller out there! Why change?
