In the states, we can send it to Associated Electrics with a very good turn around time. 2-3 weeks.

I've had mine since August and have been using it extensively. I have no problems what soever. I've used it in very hot temperatures and with 9x3 motors. However, I was using a large Novak capacitor when it was hot. The best Electronic Speed Cotnrol i've ever used.

I HATE lrp speed controls.....they reset the damn settings in the middle of the race. Novak is the only thing to buy.

I have several LRP ESC's (2 quantum competition, one quantum Sport and one IPC 7.1). And in the case I fry one of them the importer has some units for exchanging them paying a fixed cost depending of the conditions you have on the ESC: changed wires, exterior case scratched or broken, etc, etc, etc...

Maybe this kind of service is on some LRP distributors, another thing is what kind of 'distributor' you have on your country if it's really an authorised distributor who has some units to service, or they needs to get some units and send to repair to Germany.

LRP ESC's are top of the line, I've owned several brands (Tekin, Novak, Ko, GM and LRP) the best of them in conditions of service/quality and reliability is LRP by far.

what do u mean by large capacitor?....and how does the use of a capacitor prevent the speed control from frying?

The 'large capacitor' is for storing energy to be used on peak moments, when the current draw is very large.

I noticed some advante of using those large cap with my Powers batteries.

is it okay to use the 4700mf 10v (the ones on the new novak cyclones) for the LRP quantum competition? or is it better to stick with the LRP world's kit (which includes 2 caps and a heatsink)? will performance be the same? thanks for any info

I've bought the Worlds Option Kit and installed the heatsink (my car is 90gr underweight, it don't cares to add more weight) and the large cap, I haven't previous experience with caps.

i race 12th scale stock, will the large cap help me at all? since any extra 1/10ths of a second or punch coming out of a corner would help me alot.

Josh Cruyl said that there is not a advantage to using the caps in Stock. It actually will hurt performance because the Cap will take some power away from the batteries when it releases the energy. I have found this to be true. My friend borrowed my LRP Competition and was running a 7X1 motor on it with no cap for about 15 races. The speed controller is solid
