Cool lrp vs speed passion vs novak for an esc?

Hi there,

I am still trying to decide which esc to buy for mod racing.

Any suggestions to help me pick one ?

seen lot's of issues with SP, even from team drivers


LRP : smooth and safe choice, easy to setup

NOVAK kinetic: smooth but you need to learn how to tune it for your setup, more advanced

novak ballistic with the novak

lrpx12 or reedy with the lrp

they really work best together, the novak is alittle softer as it has smaller rotor, but you add some timing/boost in the esc and it will rip

once again the lrp stuff is plug and play

I Love Speed Passion and never has a problem with it. I have had a lot of issues with Novak they have great customer service, but I rather race than wait. LRP Is awesome to buy I like SP.

I noticed that Marc Rheinard is using Speed Passion with his Tamiya. That gives me more assurance I guess. Any ideas which one he uses ?
