Miss X, if you buy the KO FET servo the resistor is included!!

But, I never use it with my ESC!

the choke is 4,7 mH and yes you can hardwire the FET-Servo (7,2V servo only) on the positive terminal. the only difference is itīs no switch in between.

To MissX... Mr. Santo has uses KO PDS2123 FET servo with V12XC WITHOUT connecting the fet wire from servo to anything and it still works normal. I've not seen the car, it just based from what he told me recently.

V12XC is a great ESC and yes the limiter is not that perfect but it should be adequate enough to make such adjustment. It is just its appeareance quality (cheap printing stiker) and its body colors that bothers me the most.

As far as for Keyence...they look very solid but does it worth the price?? Looks good if putted on your Xray tough.

VFS2000...isn't that would be too many adjustment you need to do on the track??? For me, I prefer playing more with bunch of guys than struggle with whether or not those are the best adjustment from many many choices. Also, when those wizards broken, what will you do?...bring a laptop along for the race?? Oh if you did, I should expect you to be in 2002 IFMAR then...hehehe

Quantum competition, the one I used, size OK, appearance quality and colors look good, performace???.....I think I need another ESC for spare since I'm afraid it will be fried like what people have saying about it. About its FET, it's only 6V. Does using PDS2123 7.2v FET servo has some draw back when connected???

Looking from what I have said above, I think I'll go with GMV12xc for my spare in case I need it on a race day. Price consider the cheapest among what have been mention I believe, performance already proven, and those casing colors I can live with.

Any speedo with a blue wire coming out of it should be supplying 7.2v (or whatever you're getting of the battery+). I'd be amazed if the quantum competitions FET wire is only 6v, because that's the same voltage supplied to a servo by the receiver (kind of makes the FET wire pointless).

Just to re-iterate what's been said above...

If your speedo doesn't have a blue FET wire - IT'S NOT A PROBLEM. You can easily solder a fet wire onto the battery+ cable or terminal.

I have a GM V12 - my FET wire is soldered to the external batt+ socket.

My only complaint about the V4 is that it has no power switch. It's no biggie on a sedan, but it's a pain in the butt on an F1 car.

My V4R has a power switch...

Thanks wrxmy99

I looked at the latest batch that my lhs got in and they too have a power switch. I guess I must have an old one. Oh well. I'm starting to get annoyed at the auto setup at poweron. The throttle is reversed on my F1 car, so if I forget to change the model on my controller and turn on the power on my XXX-S, throttle and brake are reversed when I change model# for the XXX-S. Grrr... One more thing to remember!
