This is a great time to pick up a second speedo for your car. KO Propo ESC are one of the most popular speed controllers used by the top pro-driver, and it is the most adjustable ESC on the market today! Price is good while supplies last!

Thanks!

will a higher/lower frequency setting affect top speed? or does it only have an effect on acceleration/punch?

Default frequency settings

Marvi, general rule is higher frequency settings reduce punch but increase top end speed. So I guess lower frequency at early throttle settings moving progressively to higher frequency at latter throttle positions would achieve "the best of both worlds".

Hope that helps

EngTat,

yes, it did applied to all electronics, unfortunately that special was good only from July 1st-July 4th.

We do still have the KO ESC on sale right now (VFS-1 Pro Competition and the Value set)

Hi
Just get an VFS-1 pro and it will be the first time that I will solder the wires to the esc.... Do I have to worry about overheating the solder posts? What is the best way to solder them? I was looking for putting both the shottki and the condensator right next to the ESC... capacitor on its side and shottki over it... does anyone has this configuration? What do you solder first? I will use a 60W solder with a flat tip, that works pretty nice to solder battery tabs... however the ESC is so tiny!!! I was used to bigger and cheaper ones... Pretty nice stuff!

Any help will be more than welcome!
Thanks a lot,

Just a quick question concerning an older VFS-2000 ESC.

I'm running this ESC in a 12th scale car, is it possible/okay to do this without the capacitor?

I have seen others remove the large capacitor on other brands of speed controls in their 12th scale cars in order to save space.

If I could do this, I would be able to mount the body lower on the car.

Thanks a lot,
try to have it on there so long. just enough to melt the solder. any longer, and it might damage the FETs inside the esc.

you can also solder the diode on there... some pros have done this, so you can search around for a photo. i think Hara did it on his car. and then you can place the cap on top.. or to the side of it.
