Default KoPROPO BMCv2 vs. Tekin RS Pro

To many in the 1/8 scale offroad "E" conversion world, we know that the tekin rs pro is very well capable in handling 4cell li-po duties in a 7lb. vehicle.(heck i've even seen it in a truggy!). my question to you all is this: does the newer KO VFS-1 v2 (BMC) have the same capabilities to rival the RS pro or is it better?

The RS PRO wasn't meant or designed to be used in a 4s application. This is what the RX8 was designed for.

That being said the RS Pro can handle that application. I'd suggest altering your post and adding what application YOU plan on using them in. You might get a better response...

The BMC was designed to handle 2S LiPO max (7.4V).

No new version of the BMC will be released anytime soon. Current model is working great.

I am deciding between the two ESC. I see that the RS PRO has a new software coming out which has a "Turbo" setting. Would this be somthing similar to the drive frequency on the KO?

I like the KO, personally, I just didn't like how Tekin just disappeared for a few years (along with 2 of my speed controls that were in for repair that I never received back).

But as for performance, I have seen both do very well.
