Default Traveling Pro's Support Equipment

What is the best support equipment out at this time as far as chargers,trays and speed controls? It would be nice to know what all the traveling pro's (local and abroad) are using and why.

Chargers:

Integy 16x9 / 16x7 / 16x5

LRP Pulsar Competition (I own this one)

Reedy Quasar Pro (Alot have ben recalled though)



Equalising Tray:

Novak Smart-tray

Yokomo Rayspeed Tray

Integy INDI Booster 2 Tray (I own this one)


Speedos

LRP Quantum Comp / Quantum Comp2 / IPC V7.1 (I own this one)

Keyance Zero V Extreme (I WANT ONE!!!)

Novak GT7







All of the above are great products. Most would say that they represent the cream of the crop in state of the art in R/C right now...

It would be interesting to see what people like Tosolini,Baker,Hodge,Cyrul,etc here in the states are using along with racers like Myrberg, Groskamp, Reinhard, Hara, and Lieno are using as well. I am sure it would be varied since they are all sponsored.

The Integy 16x5 is good but needs seperate power supply and only discharges at 2o amps.

They are great ESC's. They have alot of punch in stock if you tune it for stock just like the VFS2000. Plus Horizon Hobby has great support for GM products.

Is your manual in German or is it just a bad manual? I know it can be found on their web-site in english (it's a 3-language version), but it's not the best manual I've seen
