RCCadet: Yeah, I've got a G10 in my Yokomo MR4-TC Special. I've had it since it first came out. My G12cIII is in my 1/12th car.

Both Tekin ESC's are pretty large by today's standards, although, they both work flawlessly. The LRP Quantum is a perfect size for my 1/12th car. BTW, I love the G10 also.

im about to get a new esc and im looking at either the v6 or v7. is there a noticeable difference between the two? they look almost exactly the same on the outside, except for the decals. is the v7 far ahead in performance compared to the v6? or will the v6 suit me fine? ill just be running stock most of the time and a few mod runs once in a while. thanks for any info!

Default ESC help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok.... my LRP F1 Digital Pro has self destructed today.... probable cause.... moisture....

now I am sick and tired of the UK misty weather and everytime I use my car is like treading on egg shell... I do have moisture precautions.... but unless this 3 week old ESC blows up while driving a P2K Pro died of a manufacturing fault, I want to buy one that can resist water....

What I am looking for is a ESC with reverse which can be disabled.... so when I am practicing I dont have to run to the car when I am stuck... but when racing I prefer to be forward only.... does that make sense???

I am currently running stock P2K Pro.... but I will be buying a D4 12x2 or LRP 12x2 motor.... so I prefer to have a no limit ESC.

All suggestions will be most welcome.... I dont really need price cos in UK is generally higher anyway, so I will pick the one I can afford......

Thanks!

My F1 Digital is 4 years old and it is still perfect....but it only handles down to 16T

Sonneteer,
Perhaps you wanna try an Mtronics speed control? They seem to be based in UK too..

http://www.mtroniks.net/reverse.htm

It's also waterproof, which is why I'm bringing it to your attention! U might also wanna consider some schulze ESCs, some of them are waterproof too!

Regards,
Alvin

but do the mtroniks have reverse disable? i didn't think so but i don't pay much attention to mtroniks anymore - too battery-hungry to race with effectively - so i'll be getting a V12 shortly to replace my pants sprint!

Can you tell us a bit more about the RZ series of speed controls? You seem pretty knowledgeable about them. 'cause they seem pretty good for the price.

Thanks!

its a variable frequency speedo. the rzR has just been brought out and will set you back a hefty 150. i think it's quite good because they won an off road euro champs recently - but mrtroniks don't have a good reputation when it comes to efficiency.

Yes, the variable frequency is very interesting. Supposedly it's meant to have low freq while accelerating and high freq when in the higher revs.

The question I have is that the frequency range seems rather high, in my newbie opinion. 3.75Khz to 6Khz. Good? Bad? At a glance this newbie says it's geared more for mod motors. But 6khz?!

Efficiency - can you tell me more about why it's not efficient? I mean, saying it's not efficient - does it suck batteries? Or?

Also, this ESC is VERY affordable in Singapore. S$210 each

well i've got a sprint interactive (MTRoniks). This sucks the batteries like nothing else, I don't know if the same applies to the models higher up the range. it was so bad on this front that i've now ordered a GMV12

So basically what happens is, compared to your old esc, the mtroniks gives you lower run time, is that correct? Were you using the same motor comparing the 2 ESCs?
