I am a fan of the Novak GTX. It is small and has no motor limit at all. I never had a problem with any of the three that I own.

The new Tekin's are really good, The B1(R) is good for micro. The B1 is good for stock 1/12th, then you get into the FX series ESC's for the TC. There are all really small, low internal resistance, highly adjustable in there settings. In the near future the ESC's from teken are going to able to be programmed from your computer, the new ESC's are all ready for it they are just waiting to finish the controll software I beleive.

What about the Tekin speedo? I haven't used this one yet, but I am very happy with the G-11 pro that I am running in my car now.
