Another vote for Tekin.

I m only running 540 but last week I upgraded my firmware to 198 before my race, and I was keeping up with the faster guys down the straight more than before. They didn't have that embarassing acceleration on me anymore.

I was impressed.

Ahem. Looking back at my post I have found a number of spelling errors.

Stands to reason in a market restricted to the fanatics like us, customer relations are crucial. The fact that you don't leave it to some PR bozo is a key to success too, so Tekin is indeed leading the way here (I only wish I had such customer service to help with my laptop problems). I am sure on the other hand that if I spoke german to some sort of decent standard there would be forums where the guys from LRP or GM would help. Japanese however is well and truly beyond my capabilites, I have to admit. That being said, I would like to have the time and courage to take the plunge and go with the Keyence. I did things like this int he past with cars (chassies) practically unknown outside the japanese market and have surprised even myself, so I have absolutely no regrets and am looking forward to future opportunities if only for keeping the diversity on the track. Nothing beats the curious looks and the questions you get when nobody can recognise the car on your stand that takes the establishment by storm at your local track.

I was at trophy race last sunday to withness Tekin's power

I ran a LRP TC with a Losi motor and had FGR to the Moon! I was able to keep up with Tekin guys on a long straight way of Jackson, NJ track but they had more punch on infield that it look like thier car is jumping from corner to corner, I figureed they got higher FGR (smaller pinion) than mine to do that but constant upgrading software (timing mapping) help them to go same or faster on the straight line with even they have higher FGR than other ESCs.

I will switch to Tekin ASAP as well

Add the Hobbywing Xerun 60A 2.0 to your list. Good solid performer. Just remember to order the optional programming box. They can be found if you look for them

The Tekin can gear lighter than any other speedo because of the timing boost and the Turbo.
This ads some extra timing on the straight. This way you can gear it lighter than any other speedo.
The infield is fast. Also on the straight it's fast.

For me it's Tekin.
The best service there is.
When you have a problem with your LRP or GM and you mail them, you will not get a response. By Tekin you get on all your mail response, also on mail when you have a problem.
Tekin will always try to help you as good as possible.

My Vote will go to ORCA Vritra TC Spec.

This ESC does perform, the power band and brake is great. And it come with digital program box to fine tune the ESC.

Few of the local guys at my track previously using LRP SPX and SXX. Once they try this ESC, they never look back.

You guys are helping a lot. The tekin looks like the one to get for the car.

How about Castle Mamba Max or Monster. Any reason why this one hasn't been mentioned and why doesn't one like this controller. Thanks for your reply's.

Because it's sensorless ONLY. They don't like low FDR - for stock racing .They seem great for 1/8, though. The GM ESCworks flawlessly sensorless, in mod. For stock you use the sensor wire.

You have to wait until the Mamba Pro comes out...

TC racing requires a sensored speed control and motor.

Though, the newer setups seem to do pretty well, and don't have much cogging issues...

Mine are first run productions in my Clod, and I can't use anything less than 15% throttle, usually, lol.

i have both the tekin and lrp spx, the only thing i dont like about my tekin for some reason i can never get enough brakes. its very adjustable which is very good, but can be bad for a beginner when you start playing with the timming if everything is not right, small window for error you will blow a motor, but is very fast. i like the lrp better very fast but mainly it has a lot better brakes for me any way. if the tekin had better brakes i'd go with the tekin mainly for its adjustability

I like my Speed Passion GT 1.1:
Program Box, Brushed and Brushless, Hybrid sensor, Onboard ESC Timing 2.5 limit

and my Speed Passion GT 2.0 LPF i like using that one for drifitng =D

I also had a Tekin RS they great ESCs, support is great especially sherri and her team are awsome. But at the time its was too exp and i sold it so i can buy more electronics for my other cars.

If money is not an issue i vote Tekin RS or Pro
If money is an issue Speed Passion 1.1 or 2.0 GT

You should really consider the KO Propo BMC. They are baaaaad fast, they have the ICS for your computer and you can control how much rip it has for 32 different steps of throttle (example- 1 being barely on throttle, 16-17 half throttle, and 32 being full throttle) along with with 255 different levels of auto brake, and unlike LRP and other companies, they will not realease a new speedo for a while, but send out free updates for the speedo so you are always up to date on the technology. They also have 6 different levels of timing for stock motors. (10.5-21.5)
