Default Esc....which One?!

Its time for me to purchase a new ESC to be used in my tc3 and soon to come either 4wd or 2wd buggy. What should i get? I dont want to spend too much money, but want something of quality. I was looking into the IPC pro sport but i dont know exactly if its what i would need or not.

My first choice would be a Quantum. AWESOME speedo.

For low price, check out those Duratrax speedo's

Personal opinions being what they are, my recommendation would be the Novak Dually ESC. It can handle both stock and mod motors, 4-7 cell packs and can be forund for about $99.00 (Tower's price). I'm using one in my FT TC3 and love it!! It not only fit my budget, but I'm running a 9X2 P-94 with 6 cell 3000's and it barely gets warm!! If you are planning to stick to stock motors, go with the Novak Explorer II, I started with one of those before I made the jump to mods, and never had any problems.

As with all advice, take it for what it's worth, use what you like and toss the rest. Good racing!!!

Larger size, smaller price tag. I made mine fit by standing the reciever on its side, didn't stand any taller than the servo.
