Default Which brushed ESC's

So I have a QC3 and a Tekin FX pro being used in cars and I like them both. I recently got a M06 and am going to need a esc for it. Are there any other brands/models that are Smoother, Faster Better? Both of the ones I have work great in the cars they are in. I just know there are alot of other brands/models out there and would like some opinions. The only thing I require would be a resonably small size.

Thanks

I'd go with the FXpro again if it were me.

Cool

Hey Jeff

To be honest the RS would be overkill for a mini
Was more of a tongue in cheek comment

Having said that, the RS is by far the best ESC I have ever run with an SC motor.

Stick with the FX, Its the best IN THE STATES, the RS will run a brushed motor but I find the FX to be the smoother of the two, Brushed mode on the RS is just ok.

The differences in brushed esc's is minuscule compared to the differences in brushless esc's. Some of the best brushed controllers are old ones you can pick up for pennies. I still have an old Novak Cyclone that is great. Old Tekins like the 411g are great. LRP V6 is great. Spend your money on more important things like tires and practice time.

Have to agree with wingracer. I droped in one of those 35$ dynamite tazer ESCs in my F1, and it ran just as fast as any other car out there. Since then I changed it out for a Tekin B1. Only because I got that ESC dirt cheap, and it has more options. But I never spent any more than I had to for a brushed ESC. Maybe in the past you could justify spending that much, but it doesn't seem worth it now.

If the M06 is a mini car the B1 would be the right choice. Super tiny.

For all out brushed racing the FX or FX Pro would be ideal.
