You wont have that problem with the speedpassion , there is no hole to put the wire through its a lot easier to solder wires to the esc than the GTB and the LRP, i owned both of them and its a little tricky when you have to preplace the wires, trying to get them through that little hole and keeping the soldering iron away from the plastic case.

yeah the connectors SP uses are nice b/c you can run the wires sideways if you need to.

shaun, if you want to play with the sp stuff, let me know. I have it in my TC. I run about 2 teeth lower then everyone at the track, but it has no problems keeping up. And I know it will work great in your mi3.

You'll soon have some options on who you buy the "SpeedPassion" ESC from. Orion appears to be bringing the same unit to market. I imagine you'll see a lot of companies slap their sticker on it, much like the motors made by the same company.

Orion's '08 Catalog

There's some sweet looking motors in there too.

I'm really curious about the KO brushless ESC that's been showing up at big races lately. It looks tiny.

For me, I really want to say the Novak. They guys working there are cool, their stuff is extremely tough, and they have great service. But my LRP TC Spec is so smooth, I feel like I have a lot more throttle control, especially when running rubber tires. I'm hoping whatever replaces the GTB will address this.

The Competition 2.0 SpeedPassion motors do look really nice, though.

it should make things REAL interesting once the Ko Propo Brushless ESC does come out.

Steve

many people have had problems with LRP customer service. i can say that those guys at schumacher (Adam/Shawn) are top-notch when it comes to customer service and info. i had a small issue with my Gt and i got a replacement in less than 10 working days and im not in the US! its a great product and i would recommend them/it every time!

I can say I own a LRP Sphere TC, a Novak GTB, and a Speedpassion GT. The Novak and LRP are in my box as trusty backups. I have no complaints on how they work my only problem is programming. Speedpassion is awesome.

Plus Shawn and Adam are a big help.

we all have stories to tell about each sp control, i had gtb's and liked them, i've also had a brand new one melt after two laps fresh outta the box, i've had lrps that i liked way better then the gtb because of the smoothness. i've also had them go bad and took forever to get fixed. now i'm on to SP and love the heck outta it, Not sure which of us got one first, but JB and I have countness runs, crashes, and wins with it. I've just started running it in off road, and its the smoothest i've driven to date, track slippery, spinning coming out of the corners, turn the timing up one notch and the punch down two and its money. traction comes up, timing back two, punch up three, perfect, if not,1-2 minutes of reprogramming and back out for practice. and like the others have stated, best damn thread on the forum for customer service and info.
