Did he just tell you it's better, or did he give a reason? It's most likely a "Ford vs. Chevy" thing and he's an LRP guy. Really, though, it's not like you'll regret running the LRP. It's an excellent ESC.

Well, the light weight and small footprint are great, but you'll only really realize the awesomeness of the Tekin if you get the Hotwire PC interface as well.

Less weight is never a disadvantage.

The light weight allows you to place weight where it is needed...

Something to keep in mind for touring car, they are typically heavy on the side of the electronics anyway, so a weight reduction and/or smaller electronics are going to help you maintain balance when you set everything up.
