Falconsekido isn't overseas. They're located in California I believe. When I ordered mine, I had it here in 2 business days

I use the gtb2 w/ xdrive. It is bigger then the edge and the justock. I have a justock and an edge and the GTB is hands down better then both in my opinion.

I stand corrected. I read the name and thought it was one of the hong kong distributors.

I went from running a gtb2 to a tekin rs and I gained power with the same motor. Once the tekin is put in blinky mode you can feel the difference in overall power aswell as delivery.

saw this first hand when we allowed one to run VTA the other weekend. It was pretty amazing. He was the only non vta car and was hauling butt. I asked someone about it, because I figured in blinky all would be the same.... guy that knows his stuff and has been racing a long time told me flat out, the tekin would do this. Sure enough, it was true. The rules are the rules for a reason.

What advantage do you see in the GTB2 with xdrive (anyone who has one can answer this).

I have to weigh in for Novak. Their customer service is impeccable. They definitely stand behind their product.

Hobbywing Justock

I've had the Cirtix ESC before and the Justock is loads better. For spec non ramping racing, the Justock is great. Its nearly as good as my Tekin RS at about 1/3rd the price.

Well, from the plethora of answers in this thread, I think it's safe to say that any of the ESCs are going to be a good choice. One person says GTB2 > Edge > Justock > Cirtix, another says Justock > GTB2 > Cirtix > Edge, etc etc etc

Personally, I love my Justock and I would use it over the GTB2 I had before any day of the week. It's compact, it feels nice, and it's super easy to program. What else do you need in a blinky ESC?

Maybe a company would like to comment on the physical details of esc design. I'm a big fan of Novak as well, customer service par none, but they keep coming out with new escs for the same thing. It seems like they are playing catch up.

I would rather see one well designed smaller single or double layered board to reduce the foot print and highest quality mosfets on the market. My guess is a larger board is cheaper to produce.

Just an example, Tekin has had the same line up since they got back in the market, it requires no heat sink, it smaller than most, has a smaller cap, and from a design point that has to tell you something. How long have they been around now? How much better are the components now? It too bad they don't make a non programmable. I'm no expert, but remember you asked me why.

Yeah I'll check it out, I just don't see it on the list though for VTA. It's programmable?
