I have both an original Cyclone and a Keyence zero extreme 2002 edition and they provide identical car feel, speed, ans runtime,.. you name it. However the Keyence is smaller and much easier to use. It's like having a slightly smaller cyclone with an in-built pit-wizard.
Having had one for 4 years, I'm just wanting a change. Really I'd like something smaller.

Does anyone have a link to the quantum 2? Is it even out yet? I don't see anything about it on the LRP site.

Thanks
Josh

Default Ko Propo VFS-2000

i own three of these speed controls. no problems yet. they're great because you can program them. if your in southern california, head out to socal or tamiya (if you have a tamiya car) and look for robert from ko propo.

he gave a lot of tips for setting up the VFS. i mostly run stock, but i ran mod a few times.. no problems there either. just take the normal precautions (like you would with any other esc, diodes, capacitors etc) and you should be fine.

if you can.. try to get the VFS-2000J.. it has a feature that saves a little bit of the battery just in case you sudden dump, you can move your car out of the way.

if you can, buy the esc that has a the programming unit too. i have different profiles already set up for the different tracks i race at (i.e. tamiya, so cal and oc circuit in la mirada) and i can feel the difference.

my first esc was LRP. didnt have any problems with it. only cosmetic. the paint came off the esc when i used a certain type of double sided tape!

Something different:



AFC is the active frequency control that leads to hammer hard acceleration on one hand and super smooth acting on the other. The frequency of the power FET transistors is depending on the speed of pushing the throttle stick. Fast throttle movement--> low frequency Slow throttle movement--> high frequency In the end you have more control over the car from the sticks. AFC can also be disabled.

There are some other interesting features too, like programming, and a auto run function.

That's a similar feature that the new Quantum Competition 2 will have...

True. But the CS have been on the market for around a year, and have proven it's value. Have done well in some races. The guy I know which uses, is very satisfied, no problems at all. And I'll bet the CS is cheaper than the LRP too. Besides, why go for copies?

@cole trickle: copies? sure buddy...

the re-active software in the LRP QC-2 works in a very different, let's say more advanced, way then it does in the rocket-max were only stick movements get into consideration of the frequency.

information about the LRP QC-2 are going to be on LRP's website very soon.

I have been running the CS Rocket 2000 Max for over 2 years now and love it! I also have the CS Rocket 2000 (non-Max) and it is great!

I am now switching over to Mtroniks, they will be releasing a new ESC, the 'Cirrus' very shortly.

Following this thread closely and got a couple of questions:

1. I'm looking at running stock mainly and am keen on the Keyence Zero V Extreme ESC. Any other opinions or experiences on the Keyence speedies?

2. Does the Keyence speedy come with a power cap? Has anyone run theirs with a 10,000uf 10v power cap??

3. Does anyone know of any International/top-line drivers who run a Keyence speedy?


Any help would be greatly appreciated


thanks

The keyence does not need a power cap, therfore it doesnt come with one.
