Buddy of mine uses it in 1/12 scale. He's fast.

I use it in my 22 for off road racing. Never any issues and it is certainly fast. I'm typically putting in a qualifying time that would put me top 3 or 4 in the 13.5 or mod classes. I've run the edge with a 13.5 in the car as well and didn't give up speed to anyone.

Talking 17.5 edge combo

I've only used it with 17.5 and had no issues until I overgeared the motor, the motor got over 200 F. then after that the ESC lost it's part throttle then it stopped working completely! I was using the old SS Novak motor , so I can't really blame the esc. I sent it to Novak and they exchanged it at no cost to me. I probably was partially responsible for the failure but their customer sevice was awesome!
Novak customer forever!
Just my 2$

I have used the edge with a ballistic 21.5 in a f1 car and a lrp 13.5 in a 1/12. Very smooth good power and very adjustable. Very nice speed control.

Used the Edge with a 13.5 in WGT and Legends with a 21.5 with no problems.The Legends has not been beat in any qualifier or main in the last two races.
