Okay i've been doing some research on the gtx...and it sounds like the speed controler for me. I like the 7 throttle profiles it gives you, also i heard that the capacitator is already soldered on for you . I'm just wondering if all the wires are soldered on already?

use a 40watt iron...
and don't overheat the cell tabs...will damage the cells.

Sure, but you should post this on a related thread. Like a "motors" thread, so you get the right feedback about which serrators are best.

GTX is a big esc...compared to the others on the market. The box is small, but the cap takes up alot of space. It is also hard to put in a car so that the lights will show to you and the wire tabs are in the right place. I don't have one, but this is the feedback I've gotten from my fellow racers.

So you like gtx's 7 profiles ? then you gonna love the super small but very high tech of KO PROPO VFS1 or VFS2 !! I saw my LHS buddy transfer atsushi hara program to his client esc with laptop !!! Or you could program your own style too.

Default Get the Novak GTB.

In brushed mode it has three times the fets than any speedo on the market. Plus it does brushless.

It's too bad i baught the gtx already...or is it? . I don't think i need all the features that the gtb or vfs-1 have, the gtx gives me waht i want in...it's not like i race evreyday. Plus the vfs=1 is too advanced for me too handle too much work for just club racing, and the gtb is good, i just have a thing against brushless.
