Default Novak Kinetic or Tekin RS Pro?

Im in need of a new esc for 1/10 rubber. Which would you reccomend and why? Not worried about the small price difference.

Since the Novak Kinetic has only been available for a few weeks, any response you receive will probably not be from Kinetic users......

If you have any aspirations to run mod, I would get the Kenetic. If you don't, best get the Tekin.

1/10 sedan 10.5 I might hit some other race scenes and i think they run 13.5 and 17.5. But honestly, I will probably be running 10.5 for 95% of the time. I have a Novak 10.5

Default kinetic all the way

Having used ALL the major players,,Novak Kinetic all the way..Its tough, novak dependability, great back up, theres a few bugs with the novalink..But it tells you exactly what you are changing, easy to use and its orange
Using Balistic 10.5 ran against a 5.5..as fast, if not faster through the infield, the 5.5 gets it back on the straight, where it should, but other than that I was VERY close..and it ran cool...

+1 on the kinetic here. very user friendly software and company support. its only a matter of time before more and more people are using them. I have either TQed or 2nd spot (by fraction of a sec) my last few times out with it in a field of 15+ drivers

I've seen it run, kinetic, nothing special and it is HUGE. It's not like it blew away the other esc's

Once it get's some Championship titles I would consider it

Until then only one is PROVEN

Save yourself some money and just go with the Tekin RS. It will be able to run all those motors with no problems.
