Cool GT7 or V7.1

The 7.1 is clearly better to me, I have run both and am back to the LRP

LRP 7.1 ------- on resistance = .00052, 690 amps, can handle up to 8 cells, and a higher drive frequency than the GT7

GT7------------on resistance = .00058, 640 amps, only handles up to 6 cells
How can you say the LRP has a higher drive frequency when it is preset around 3140hz.? The GT7 is adjustable and can be set over 20,000hz. I don't understand why alot of people say the GT7 isn't punchy. I'm sure the ESC's profile can be programmed for any feel you'd like. The statement "690 amps" for the LRP is for advertising purposes only. I think the numbers LRP puts out is definitely peak current for a second or two. The actual continuous current would be much lower than that. Through research I've found out that these claims are not real world numbers. The most energy a 6-cell pack can produce is around 150 amps and this is for very short periods. Any top-of-the-line ESC you buy from any company is going to be great. It just depends on the features you need most.

I wouldn't waste the money or time trying to test every ESC on the market. Alot of guys are always bashing this product or that product. I think it's ridiculous to constantly claim that you have to have a certain product to do well. Consumers should buy what they can afford and what they think is the better product. A little bit of research goes a long way. I know I'd never ask anybody's opinion on what to buy. I'm not that ignorant!

Actually, LRP state that's it for 1 (one) second.

Personally, I've found that the 7.1 is very reliable and suits ME nice.

I also believe that both are top ESC's and you cant go wrong with either.

When it's about data, quality and service they are as close as they can be.

So it's all about what suits YOU.

Price, size, power cap/no power cap, features, wiring and the level of service where YOU live. It's these small things that make the difference. And only YOU can tell which of these that matter to you.
