Whats the best ESC for carpet racing?

Hi I need some advice I am currently using a LRP Quantum 2 in 27 turn indoor and I seem to be lacking punch! Alot of the club chaps are running the Hara Twister 2.2 is this a much better speedo?

I hope you can help

I'm running Novak GTX's in my 12th scaler and my TC, and I absolutely love 'em. Plenty of punch, small, and dead reliable.

The GTX is probably one of the best ESC out. Alot of programming settings, small, Novak customer support is excellent. Ive had mine for a couple of years, and havent had a problem with it yet.
Very reliable, and great speedo overall.

if you are using this on carpet, you should look into the keyence zero-v carpet spec esc. it has an ultra stiff case, and lowered fets.

Tekin ESCs have the freshest FETs on the market.

So is the Twister 2.2 better than the Quantum 2?

I run the twister 2.2 because I can't get a hold of the LRP quantum 3 (i don't think anyone can).

when you think about the twister, just remember, what is basically is is a KO Propo esc with different wrapping. I have ran both the LRP and the Twister, I wanted the LRP because of not having to use a large capacitor but I couldn't get one. I am very happy with my twister and everyone at my track has either that or the Novak. I have never gotten use to the orange color of the NOvak but that is a personal preference. I think that the Novak's are very good esc's it just depends on your preference.

I believe that a lot of people have the twister because they are inexpensive. but my opinion, I don't think that twister is that much better but it is one that everyone is using (along with other ones). I just think that you cannot go wrong with either a twister or a Novak. just depends on what you want to spend. The twister, I have set up once and have not had to ever change the settings whether mod or 19 turn. If you buy the twister and you are going to race modified, just remember, the capacitor that comes with the ttwister is for 19turn and lower. If you run Mod, make sure that you purchase the capacitor that will handle mods, you can get them at speedtechrc.com and they are about $25.

Probably not. But if you want to believe it is then it can be.

KO VFS-1 (or2). Hands down the best esc on the market in terms of adjustability and programming capability. It's super tiny, but like most other esc's needs a cap for 19T and hotter.

Another really nice esc is the Keyence, it doesn't require a cap whatsoever I believe.

If you are thinking of brushless at all I recomend the LRP sphere competition 2007. It is a great speedo brushed and brushless.

I run both, I like the flexibility of the Ko but you need the programmer or computer wire.

The Ko need to be sent for repair so now I drive the QC2 and I can't see any difference on the track. I dont think one is better than the other...
