I've used Novak and Tekin. I'd rate Novak as hardly there compared to Tekin.

LOL lots of funny answers.... Tekin brakes work fine once they start to work... The delay between when you hit the brakes on the radio and the car starts to slow is annoying. Mamba Max Pro has a similar feel.

LRP has always had the best brakes and is about the only ESC on the market that will brake with the same force at any speed with any particular amount of brake application. From my experience anyone who tells you different is lying (I don't use LRP anything so I am hardly biased).

Most ESC's on the market brake inconsistently (varying amount of brake force at different speeds for the same brake value). These are not always a bad thing and can improve you race times when setup right. My BD fades as it slows but this allows me to hold the brakes on longer as I start to turn into a corner giving more steering without understeer. This works unreal on my 12th scale but is a minor weakness in my TC at fast entry hairpins.

Dragonfire is right, LRP then BD...

I love the Tekin but it has to be matched to the right motor

That depends on what you mean by best! If you mean just locks the wheels up then you wash out wide on a corner, they pretty much can all do that. But for braking control you want a GM.

With a GM you can adjust:-

Minimum braking power
Maximum braking power
Drag brake
Time until full brake
Soft brake(this will increase braking power as motor speed decrease)
Time of the soft brake( how quickly the power builds)
Current limit
Anti lock function

And that isn't even all the brake functions. Like i said before when it comes to just locking the wheels up they can all do that but when you need to find braking grip in low grip conditions you need something a little more advanced.
