Default Best Sensored esc

Looking for opinions on the best sensored esc for low turn mod motors, reliability is a must.

Speedpassion GT 2.0 !!!
Definately the most reliable mod esc available.
Great feel and has plenty performance for mod.

Its great. I only have the RS version as I don't run under 10.5 turns though. You'll like the programability and the support.

From reading John Stranahans reports on his 3.5 turn pan car, the RX8 sounds like the better tekin for the really low turn motors. I have 3 of the RS pro's but dont run anything less than 10.5 on them, so I could probably get away with the RS's. Not a good comparison for what you are looking for.

Really like the ability to update software and not have to buy a new ESC. I have CC's is all my mini's and my 1/8, but will slowly be replacing them with Tekins as time goes on. I think I will be using RS's in my 1/18 since the footprint is small and the programming is better than the CC. Love the turbo in v200.

John

About reliability, I think it depends on how you drive.
In last modified race at my local track, there were 5-6 BMC (Orion), 2 of them were overheat frequently. Mine was no problem at all. however, BMC has overheat protection so the esc would not be damaged.
Speedpassion is similar with BMC in term of speed (modified class). They can fight side by side with BMC users.
So I think it is now about your personal preference and pocket. SP is cheaper than KO.
KO needs programmer cable, and it is expensive. but it is made in Japan

I have seen people having reliability problems with the KO for mod. The RS series is well known to run very hot on low turn motors. The LRP range and SP GT range are your best bets although the RB-50 also has proven itself recently with a new firmware. It does however have less reliability than the SP and LRP but that may be bad feedback from the 30.

The safest bet with those 3 is the SP generally as it has less failures that the other two.

I'm using RS Pro in 13.5 class and it RULES....nothing beats it on large tracks. I've tried it with mod but throttle feel of LRP is much smoother and better to drive.
