Our track owner and myself are doing some testing for esc in USVTA, and finding that the truth is, NOT ALL ESC's are the same...
Did you test with the Orion R10? The reason I'm asking is at the Reedy race it was the speedo to have... For a number of reasons....

And which model are you using for Stock?

I know, right?

Out of the 20 esc's in the 13.5 and 17.5 mains, 10 were tekins, 5 were LRP, 3 Hackers, and two Team Powers.

Just think how much faster the ten Tekin drivers would have been if they had the "better feel" of the LRP.

Feel, ladies and gentleman, is subjective. Race results, on the other hand, are not subjective. Two blinky classes at the Reedy, two wins for Tekin and 50% coverage in the Mains. Obviously, not everyone believes the Tekin suffers in terms of driveability........

How many other speed controls made four years ago are still winning big races? I don't see anybody rocking the Sphere or SPX. I've probably spent $1000 on ESC's since then not to mention the LRP data cable which has been used zero times in the last 1.5 years because that's how many updates came out.

Results tell the important parts of the story, and Tekin has that covered. I'm glad that my rcprogear site helps set people (like me) straight.

Feel is highly subjective, and varies between people and tracks. Find a combo you love and bury people with it.

This is what I am talking about. As you go through can you please explain the differences you are finding and what your using as a control.
