What's your budget? I'd go with a GT7 or a LRP competition.

Well they're both very good, just get the cheapest one. I'd go with Novak just because of the customer service.

I'm not sure what you excatly want; The F1 Pro is a reverse ESC. As such, it's a good ESC. So if it's for bashing, this would probably be the best choise. The reverse can be disabled, if you want to go to some races.

But if it's for racing, I would definately choose the Dually; Much lower internal resistance, meaning more speed and acceleration. It has also a very good BEC (6 volt), while the F1 is only 5 volt. So with the Dually, there's 25% faster steering servo, so it'll react much quicker to your input. And then there's two profiles to choose from.

About quality, you cant go wrong with any of them.

Novak

Dually

Heatsink: Dont think so. It might raise the budget some, but if you dont care about micro size, fancy adjustment and soldering posts, then you get a speedo with data comparable to the LRP Quantum Competition 2 (IR, motor limit, BEC).
