Anyone recommend a ESC for use with just the stock silver can? I will be sticking with silver can and running lipo. Would the TEU 104 be the best option? What are the alternatives specifically for the 104.

Right now I am running a LRP Quantum Comp 2, but I have a KO VFS1 that I am going to try. THe QC2 is older though, LRP brought out a QC3 not too long ago which should be a good choice as well

I am using an old lrp comp.3.
I think Sharpe was using a b1.

you got the Tekin Fx/FX Pro or a Tekin B1 or the LRP QC3...the nice and small KO/Hara/Yokomo speedos would be perfect, but don't offer the lipo cutoff - so you'll need to look at some of the newer type, plus side is you can find them used for a good price
