Anyone, that isn't biased
1. which is better
2. which actually weighs more
3. is smaller
4. does the comp 2 need a capacitor to run stock.

1. Neither is better than the other
2. Novaks site says 18.1 grams (not sure if this is with or without the capicator) LRP's site says 21.5 grams
3. GTX
4. No

oops. the gtx is smaller... hmm

ya double checking both sites and the gtx just barely smaller, like less than 5mm all around... but as soon as you add the capacitor on the Q2 is smaller and doesn't need a cap...

They are the same price (at least at our LHS) and they probably work about the same.. so its up to you Chris..

I use a Q2 and love it... if it blew, I would probably try a GTX just to see...

I also use the Q2, but have had a switch problem but other than that its a strong esc. I heard the new GTX had maddd punch so i might try it later.

I have heard the same thing and I would love to try one just to see... but I will have to wait until my Q2 blows...

What I am really trying to do is get my car as light as possible without sacrificing performance by swithcing to a capacitor less esc. I will be getting the low profile servo here soon to add to the lightness.

ive finally got a new esc and i ended up getting a GTX (from the lhs...ouch..hurt the wallet )

it does have quite a lot of punch out of the box but thats because its preset to profile 3.....1 behind most aggreesive..7 behind smoothest

i will try out different profiles next time i race.

Getting a smaller ESC will help, but there are other factors people overlook... smaller/shorter esc wires, not shoogooing your batts, not having lots of stickers on your body, changing steel screws for titanium or aluminum in non stress areas...

there are other cheaper ways to lower the weight of your car..

you cant go wrong with either for weight. Only bad thing about the GTX is that HUGE cap on it other than that its awesome i heard.
