I'm in the same boat...looking to get a new TC and have a limited amount of funds for a esc. I do usually run LRP's and Novak's, but in my opinion, I think dollar for dollar the Duratrax 8T pro intillispeed is a good option too. I just read a few tests on it and based on what I read its very good and smooth, and it only costs $79. It has the same dimensions as a cyclone, solder posts, fully programmable, Hz, brakes ect... kinda like the Gt7 programming. The bad is that its not pretty and of course the stigma of the name duratrax. But heck if it does the same as a $150 speedo, Its worth the shot.

A few years back duratraxs speedos were made by novak with a duratrax shell on it. Things could have changed but i am looking into 8t pro as my next speedo. I'm the king of racing on a budget,i have kids!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How about holdin that $100 and savin up some more. Just a bit more so u can buy a this:IPC V7.1 ultimate racing Digital Speed Control runs smoother and cooler, includes digital current limiter, adjustable drag brakes, and hyper BEC. It also features automatic full power digital starts, more power, with longer run times, maximum interference suppression even on 75MHz, and simple, one button setup.
LRP worked with the Team Associated racers, who tested a large number of different frequencies, including frequencies higher than 3,100 Hz. The drivers settled on 3,100Hz as being the best frequency compatible with motor RPM and receiver frequencies. LRP’s use of their recommendation has resulted in a super smooth and cooler running speed control, and gives more traction to the tires.
LRP’s all new drag brakes are included. Drag brakes have been used in on road gas car racing for 30 years. With the normal braking feature, the driver adjusts his initial braking amount by pushing the throttle lever in reverse. The new drag brake feature allows the brakes to engage automatically, when you release the throttle. This means that every time you round a corner, you will get exactly the same amount of brakes every time.

it's around $130. So ur almost there. Don't go for the reverseable ESC. Especially if u want to go racing. Most races won't even use the reversable function anyways. People who buy it usually play around outside there house or inside. I hav this ESC and I race. It's a good one. Try it out.

Thumbs up Sorry bout that

i did not see that thread before i posted.... my apologies

but i do thank all the help i have recieved and i have gone with the Dually.

with it being my FIRST ever ECS i wanted to get a good semi high quality racer one with all the goodies of the big boys.... ill get a wham bam thank you mam on the next one.

one of the biggest reason i chose the Dually is due to its no motor limit and the ability to use any type of motor Stock or modified. who knows what ill end up doing a i am a rookie, still

thanks again guys

Default Well i got it

Its in the car and after i got over the NEWBIE Blues i am very happy with my ECS, Just a follow up.

Hooking it up was simple enough and i think this ECS will be in my cars for a long time to come.

The only issue i have with it is the footprint i think i a bit large as compared to others onthe market but for what it is and its potential for being a simple yet excellent ECS i am happy with my choice.

Excellent choice! You will be VERY happy with it.

Also, it is ESC, not ECS.
