Default Which ESC would be better?

OK guys, I'm in the process of getting an ESC, but I don't know which of the following would be better.
Im looking for an ESC that has the sensor cable for a sensored motor (Epic D3)

Novak GTB Brushed/Brushless
Speed Passion GT V2.0 LPF
Castle Creations Mamba Max Pro Sensored/Sensorless

Which would be the better of the lot? Any info is much appreciated.

D.DJ

well, I've spent a lot on different esc and sold them all used, dirt cheap. And it costs more than a Tekin RS Pro

What turn motor are you planning on using?
And what vehicle

Maybe help people figure it out for you, besides getting the normal Tekin replies (guys he provided a list)

RS Pro or RS If you have space issues and need space.
Speed Passion and Ko Propo For smoothness.

Tekin RS are nice but I preferre Ko or Speed Passion GTs b/c they are silky smooth.

Well, it looks like the Speed Passion will be my choice
I guess I can become a smooth driver, but then again it might come naturally since I race 1/10 nitro now.
eBay has it around 250, amain at just under 120, so in it goes with the Epic D3!!

I run speed passion and tekin. The speed passions are great, I have never had a problem other than the rx wire has stopped working a few times. No big deal just unplug it and plug a new one in. The tekin is a little faster and runs motors cooler on boost. I have a speed passion gt 2.0 lpf for sale for $100 if you want some information or pics pm me.

So nobody yet has asked you for what car, and whether it's racing or bashing. Not that it reallly matters, peope usually just say what they have, regardless of your budget or application........

Probably implied by this line in his signature:

Yep thats the one! HB Cyclone S - I was told. I know its the original Cyclone, but with a CF chassis.
I won't be bashing it, well, not really, just local racing.
I wouldn't mind looking at the ESC you have Revlimit, PM sent after this post
