got the infinity A-01B and it is very smooth. I also have the quantum competition and I prefer the A-01B even though it doesn't have any programs really.... the break and the torque control can be set simple.... I also have the A-07VZ which I use in a TXT-1 with 2 17T motors and it is as powerful as a Novak Super rooster but much smaller and much, much smoother. Certainly the better choise. I also have the Zero Extreme 2002 but still need to install is. I guess the rapida is the succesor to the 2002.

anyway, why do you want to know? I like my keyences but everybody else uses novak and Lrp.

Thank's for the reply,

I have a number of GM Racing esc's (V12, V12XC, V8). In general I'm very happy with them but I have them for some time now and since, unfortunatety, on Saturday the XC was fried, I'm in search for a new one!

I don't want to get the QC2 (says it is waterproof but it isn't really), Mtronics Cirus is waterproof but not as good as GM's, GM Racing SX12W costs the same as the Keyence one

That's why!

Anyone else?

Nick

I've been running the Keyence Extreme 2002 for about a year and a half now and have nothing but good things to say about it.The new keyence rapida is supposed to be even better,which I will probably update to next season.Most people say it's hard to set up and program but it isn't really.The Keyence ESC's are by far the most versatile speedo's on the market,they have endless adjustments.

Every Q2 that I have had has gone up in smoke. It's a good speedo on paper but on the track I haven't had the best of luck with them. The Keyence has been great for me. It's nice that you can change the speedo settings without a pit wizard type device. Once you learn the speedo it's very easy to set up.

It's not exactly that I had the QC2 but at the EC those escs were on fire under rain!!! Even when they put them in boxes some people's fried

On the other hand Cirus handled rain very well. Not even one problem!

You can't go wrong with the keyence. They provide better runtime than any other speedie I have used and also the tunability is unreal! Its not hard to use.

I have however managed to kill one, but thats my fault for using bad motors (it took two of em shorting liike crazy to bring it down tho...)

I have used the Cirrus quite a while, and it's good on rain, but it doesn't have steering priority (at least mine) and I give up because radio glitching. It must be said that they have a great customer support.
The Q2 is what I use now with no problems at all. I feel more power with this one, comparing to my cirrus or TC2, but it's up to you, buy what you are confident with, and respect your ESC, thing that's not the case with so many drivers.

In dry conditions QC2 (like QC) is very good. Mtronics esc are great for all conditions (best in wet, very good in dry).

That's why I'll get an Mtronics Sprint (up to 8T) -cheaper- for wet and another for dry!

Only thing is to remeber that the Keyence IS NOT waterproof. I have known people to use them when it is light rain and them to fry - other than that they are excellant. I run one all the time and have no problems with it.

I have a keyence A07-RZ(the VZ replaced the RZ, same specs). Awsome speedo, 2+ years and still working great. The only pain in the arse thing with the A07's is replacing the wires(extreme takes that problem away). When/if I ever upgrade it will be to a V-extreme. I've seen alot of novaks blow-up and 1 quantum catch fire....
