Default Brushed motor esc...

i'm torn between LRP Quantum3 or KO VFS1 competition2 esc..
it's for my Yokomo 48T SSGP brushed motor..
which one should i choose?

LRP got lipo cut off but 10 minutes race with 5600mAh lipo
Any no auto lipo cut off esc will not harm my lipo

i'm using my mamba max for practice
since it got brushed and brushless mode with auto lipo protection
so i can bash till the esc cut off automatically

but i want an esc that specifically design for brushed motor
from my observation these 2 came out on top..

can u guys give me advice on which one to buy?
the lucky ESC will be for race use only..

I run the VFS-1 esc's in my cars, and they have been flawless. I managed to get a handheld programmer with the VFS-1 setting card for very cheap (used) so I can tune all my ESCs. Really brings my 27T motors to life (I still have a lot more top end than 17.5 cars).

The programmer and the PC hookup are the only ways you can alter your drive frequency profiles and other settings, so this does add to the expense.

KO Japan did release a new updated PC programming software that allows you to set the voltage-save (radio priority setting) as high as 6.0v to act as a lipo save feature. It keeps voltage from going below 6.0 when under load. To get this you must have the ICS/USB connection gear, and it's quite expensive. Honestly I would say not to bother with the lipo thing since you will never get near cutoff in a race...

From what I've heard, the LRP is nice since you don't need a separate programmer. I also understand that the settings do not offer a whole lot of fine tuning...

I'm sure either one is great.

It's nice having something so small and simple (Tamiya Volac version shown):
