Okay a bunch of you experience guys are gonna laugh but here it goes....

I am new the the TC world, I have the Losi XXX-S. I am running stock class only. I am using a P2K Pro. I have good match 2400 packs. I am using a Novak T4... Yup you read right, a Novak T4 speed controler... It works fine, has brakes, doesn't get hot. Works fine. My question is, why would I need a better speed controller? Say like a Novak cyclone? I have no clue, so someone please convince me why I shouldn't use the T4. LMAO! What benifits will I get from a Novak cyclone? What performace gains will I get.


I hope nobody fell out of their chairs reading this. If you did, I am sorry..

Whitester-

You won't hear me laughing... My favorite speed control is still the old Tekin G9...

Your T4 was a top of the line speed control a few years ago. There may be some more efficient models out, but in stock class the T4 could be advantageous. It runs at a lower frequency than most of the latest speedos, which would give it a punchier feel, just what you want in stock class.

Bottom line... I can't think of a good reason to upgrade from a T4 if it's working well for you.

At towerhobbies.com, i saw they have a Quantum Pro Sport for $189.99 and the Quantum Competition for $179.99...

how come the pro sport is more expensive then the Competition??

all the specs on the Quantum Comp is better than the pro sport...

Is there anywhere else that i could get one of these cheaper??

I know that every now and then, Hobby People sells the Quantum Competition for $149. I told my LHS owner about this. He called and confirmed and then sold me one for $150 out the door. Not too shabby. It's good to know your LHS guys.

To answer the question about the GM V12WE and XC, the main differences are the XC has a very slightly lower (as per book) R(DSon) in Ohm at 25 0,0004 vs. 0,0003. A higher peak current at 25 600A vs. 720A. Current max. 10s 150A vs. 220A. Continuous current at 7,2V 100A vs. 150A. And the WE has a 7t motor limit while the XC has none. Hope that answers your question. I have the XC by the way. Great ESC!

TFR.... I do not mean to be off topic here... but why are you looking for such a nice speedo for your Micro ? I know that the GM V4 -6 series is whole lot cheaper and just as small if not smaller ? you could buy 3 V4's for the price of the competiton

I personally have an old novak exlporer in mine.
Just curious
