hey everyone,

i'd go for LRP, alwayz been great and reliable... not to mention POWERFUL

just one quick thing though... maybe someone could help me out... i have a quantum 1 and it says in the instructions to hold brake for 5 seconds to lower the freqeuncy or something and it will give you more punch off the start.. however... mine does not seem to work... ive tried it many times... but have seen no difference at all... i was just curious as to why it seems as though nuthing is happening... should there be a BIG difference? one that is noticable?

ive been resorting to the auto start function on my mars which is great ... but maybe the two can/could combine to literlly launch my car off the line haha... or maybe not

just wanted to know if anyone can help

thanx
robbie

also, that is not to take any points away from LRP Quantums... they are an awesome speedy.. and well worth the money

If u can find the LRP IPC V6 , they are pretty good for stock racing. but you dont see those speedos too often. all speedos are good, it depends how far you take it. especially racing.

Just an opinion my friend. Passing a guy with any speedo takes skills.....ie..your fingers. Anybody could pass a newbie with a esc with bells and whistles. All escs are reliable with certain characteristics....Where GT7 being ultra smooth or shall I say too smooth for my driving style, QC2 .....no comments (I have one QC1 for years w/o problems), GM V12 nothing beats it when you need the old fashion speed and power, VFS 2K....versatile, so on and so forth.

So, exactly how "crappy" is my Duratrax Autosport Forward ESC? Will I get smoked at my first race on Tuesday?

Trying it myself Matt,

At Gilroy I was running a v7.1 in a stock TC3 with a regular monster and my dad was running his TC3 with a Paradigm monster & a quantum. I'd motor him ALL THE TIME

We tried reseting both ESC's & swapping them and STILL the car with the IPC was faster.

Don't count out the KO Propo VFS 2000. Extremely adjustable, you create the mapping for power.

I like the way you plug it in the computer and decide how the speedo will react at different positions of the throttle. Robert was great helping people out with the speedo at the nats.
