thanks everyone, i'll order BMC.
now my next question, which one should i get, KO version or Orion version?
which one do you guys run most?

do you guys know when will Orion release v1.5?
I would go with the KO as the support from what I have experienced is quicker, for example the 1.5 Version and software updates.

here in the US, KO America is taking care of the orion customers. So I would buy from the source. that ways I never have to worry if that relationship goes south

Some other guys i race with put there motors on a dyno that race in 13.5 rubber one a tekin rs pro, one a gt 2.0, and the Ko...

rs pro - ran 7900 kv
ko - 9000kv those numbers alone tell the truth
GT 2.0 - 7500kv

Alex
How about mod motor? Will the KO has that advantage too?

Thanks!

OK I have a question just in case somebody knows. My last KO speedo was the VFS, but I noticed there were several out that were based on this platform. There was the Yokomo version and the Hara, but I just assumed that these were all serviced by KO. So I guess with the BMC I was thinking the same thing.

KO Propo BMC and Team Orion Vortex BL Spec Race are the best brushless esc in the world today.

Btw, just to let ko propo / team orion designers knows : my friend use LRP X12 - 3.0T motor + Team Orion Vortex BL Spec Race + Hi Speed Energy 4000 35C lipo batt. The air temperature was 35-36C, hot tropical weather. The ESC was FAIL / SHUTDOWN just after 2 1/2 minutes ?? .... really a disappointement for top level esc IMO.

maybe the gearing? or X12 motor is just too fast for BMC

@asw7576: a 3.0T wind with a LiPo is insanse with any speedo or motor... honestly speaking, a 3.0t is insane with any battery and never used for racing. For LiPo your friend would be better with a 4.5 or 5.0t when running X12, for 5-cells it's a 3.5 or 4.0t as the motor of choice.

Btw, do you mind if I disagree to your comment about "best brushless esc in the world today"?
Don't think this is proven by any result or experience to be honest with you.

But I'm not to badmouth anything, definitely other companies are getting closer to us with the performance of their speed-controls.

In here, we enjoy racing 3.5T and 4.0T motor, mostly with Orion and X12. We like it.

Are you saying LRP is the best brushless esc in the world today now ??

Indirectly yes, thats what he was saying....I think he'll only agrees if someone says that the Blue is the best in the world.....though if you read this thread only few do recommend LRP over KO....and thats from the users point of view, not from someone who works/represent a company....

users choice is not only due to performance but also sales n services... how fast is the turnaround for an ESC warranty..? not only USA but also worldwide... SP is about 4 to 6 weeks (tried that), KO almost the same... LRP..? 3/6/12 months..? yes, undeniable most world fastest drivers r using LRP... but i can't tell the difference between performance of LRP SPX/SXX with KO... SP, yes it's not as fast... but if i wanna use it for weekend bashing then SP will be my choice... it took me sometime before i decide my esc... n i chosen KO, not that i'm a fan of KO but really with the almost same amount of $$$ i think KO serve me better... but it's all personal preferences...

How much slower do you think the SP GT2.0 is compared to the LRP sxx or KO? Lets say on a open track?
