Nosram = UK
LRP = German
Futaba = Japan

Their top esc are the same, but what I heard is Futaba has better quality.

Get which ever one has better support in your area. If you live in the UK go with the nosram if your in the US go with the LRP. I think there the same esc because there specs look the same to me, but don't trust me on that.

Good luck racing.

Nosrams and LRP Quantums are exactly the same ESCs. Both have several different models in the lineup, but they're all the same, only different colour. Nosram was made by a UK based company that LRP bought out couple of years ago, so now LRP is actually distributing both of them.

Olev is right on. So the International is good quality.

However, there might be some differences in warranty. LRP got lifetime warranty, dont know about Nosram. It might be stated on their site, www.Nosram.com

One thing to watch is that the names of a lot of the current nosram esc's are exactly the same as those of ten years ago, so be careful when buying second hand.

One thing you can't go wrong with that they look much cooler that the LRP or Futaba one's.

Every current Nosram is the same as an LRP on the inside. Both have lifetime warranties. Go for whichever is cheaper or has a nicer colour scheme.

NOstram is the original.
than LRP bought out Nostrom and started to rebadge the speedos to the Quantum series.
Futaba also rebadge the Nostrom and get the MC800C, MC600C, and MC400's..and so on...

all n all...they are all the same...If you are in the UK buy Nostrom
in Germany and US buy LRP.
if you're in the US LRP has the best warrantee of all of them..Lifetime!

Futaba does have the best case out of all of them.. I had one...but fried it after 2 racing days...typical LRP/Nostrom problems.
