Default Best Stock Class ESC Tekin/Keyance/KO

Which ESC is most suited for Stock Class 23T and 27T?

I hear from some experienced guys on track that Tekin FX more suited for mod class and Keyance or KO VFS1 will be more suitable for stock as their drive frequency is lower.

Any comments?

In stock class 23T, which esc, FX or FX Pro, will provide more punch?

Is the drive frequency for FX or FX Pro variable? How can it be set?

Is the FX series more suited to high frequency motors like mod class than lower frequency motors in stock 23T class ?

without having to buy an external programming device.....the best speedo out of the three you mentioned is the Keyence. You can adjust the freq to what ever your heart desires. Stock, 19turn, or mod, it doesn't matter. It's the best hands down IMO of the three speedo's you asked about.

but its also the most expensive. Youll be spending atleast $50 on top ofthe esc price for the tekin or KO, but they are all programmable to be functioning the same with stock,

Does it mean that Tekin FX requires the Hotwire to programme the frequency?

When U set the freq on the Keyence, is it set on a flat freq?
Example: I set it at 1.5k, is it flat at 1.5k, or it varies to a higher freq with its internal program.......

yes, they just got in stock the hotwire, which is around $40, on top of the esc, the KO's programmer is about $70 on top.

Not as such, but you have a choice of throttle profiles which I believe change the drive frequency range. Remember the FX changes the drive frequency as the motor spools up so you won't be able to set it to a single frequency. I believe the FX (non pro there is no need unless you run mod) is the best stock motor speedo out there.
