you just read on the spec and you believe in it. a driver wont feel the difference of 0.0001 ohm !!!!!! even if you use the meter you can hardly measure up this difference. but the fact is V12 burns up easily.

Yes, I don't believe in the spec. I try all speedos, and the V12 is great (for me).... for burns up easily, Quantum is worse than V12

how come you dudes only look at the resistance, not the continous amp an esc has ?
i do also believe that no one cant beat the cyclone when it comes to durability, v12's seem fragile.

thing that annoys me the most about the v12s is the need to pull out neg wire first. that what the manual says !! i just dont get it at all.
when it comes to r/c all i want is simple things, i dont want to be bothered by other things.

I truly believe Novak is the only way to go. They are simply the best when it comes to reliability, performance and most of all class.
