Well.....no offense to you at all but I really wonder how many, Whay Esc questions are posted on here a week. Its crazy Here is my 2c for ya. Any of the above speed contronls that you posted plus the KO BMC are great I run with guys that use them and have swapped them in and out trying to find the best one, I personally use a SP 2.0 and I really like it because they always seem to come out with ESC updates pretty often, but if I were to go to something else it would the Tekin seeing that it has a 1s lipo option but if the LRP had it I would go that route. Good luck with your decision there is almost to much to choose from

Today I'd buy an RS, or mamba pro.

Tomorrow it'll likely be a different story

I like the SPX or the SXX, both good in my opinion, but it depends on what works for you personally.

This is really a post for the "electronics" section of the forum.
Otherwise. I heard LRP just came out with a successor to the LRP SPX.
Then another company from Holland is coming out with an even more efficient speed controller. I'm told my LRP Sphere TC Specs are outdated adn slow, and they aren't even 3 yrs old. Anyone care to chime in?

Witch company from Holland? Corally?
Will they finally build a good speedo?

I choose for the Tekin RS all the way.
I have it from when it came out and they never disappointed me with there updates and there service.

I think you need to first decide if you want to go with an upgradeable speedy or a "throw away" speedy.

Tekin is one example of speedy which can be upgraded with free software graciously offerred by the company at no cost (and apparently they want to keep it that way). There are others as well. Downside is that to take full advantage of their abilities you need a computer handy and a USB device to plug the speedy in the computer (Hotwire for Tekin, approx. 30$ extra).

The other option is to go with "software embedded" (or non-upgradeable, or throw-away) speedies (LRP, etc).
"Non upgradeable speedy" basically means once the software is obsolete you have no choice but to replace them.

I think you could buy one form each camp and test which you like best and keep that.

Default Esc's

From one who was annihlated yesterday by adjustable timing speeders I would like to post my observations. Speeders are changing at a balistic rate right now. Older technology speeders are fine if you are running mod or on a large, fast, track (asphalt). If you are running reduced speed motors (21.5-17.5-13.5) on smaller, slower, tracks (carpet) the adjustable timing speeders have a huge advantage. Again the industry is changing incredibly fast in this arena and by spring there will probably be a whole new generation.
