Default Best Esc

I am looking to start racing in Electric cars...in the Stock class...What is a good ESC that I should look into...also money is a concern...(My Girl will kill me right before the 14th if I have a $150 ESC and she has BurgerKing for Dinner)...

Try and pickup a second hand GT7 or something like that, shouldnt cost you a lot and its a good speedo, the guys who have to have the top gear will have ditched it for the GTx now but theres no difference except size really.

My recommendation will work for LRP and Novak..not sure on the other brands because I am unaware of their customer service and repair. But buy a used Quantum 1 or Quantum 2 on ebay. The more beat up it is the cheaper it will be. Who cares as long as it works. Take the ESC and send it to Associated. Tell them you want the ESC looked over and brought back to 100% operational condition. Tell them you want a new case and the entire unit re-wired. This service should only coast you about $20.00 plus shipping. When you get the ESC's back, it will look and operate as brand new. Heck, you will be able to sell it on ebay again for much more than you have into it!

GTX... $130 on sale.
reg. price is $155
less $25.00 discount for order over $150

this is a great you can not pass up.

btw..the G10pro+ is great as well.

your girl friend should not be a factor on what speedo you get... and it's cheaper to take her to In&out Burgers.... she can have a choice of hamburger, cheeseburger, hamburger, cheeseburger, cheeseburger and cheeseburger.
