i like the keyence rapida the best so far.they seem to be in a class of there own.i was blown away by the info on there website.seems like they get into alot more advanced electronics than R/C speed controls.the features are amazing and it has the lowest on resistance i have seen yet.all of the speedos are excelent that have been mentioned and you cant go wrong with any of them.i have run them all and liked them alot.i just chose to stay with the keyence.

It of course it all seems to be personal preferance. I've owned and used all of the major brands EXCEPT LRP and I lean towards the KO VFS-1 Pro or the Keyence Rapida Pro. Simply put- They're just more adjustable and that's what I'm after -JB

Jaybee,

The only thing that I don't really understand when using the VFS-1, with all of the adjustability in it, How do you know when you are overgeared or how do you know if your throttle frequency is too low????? Other than that, I think any of the competition level speedos work fine.


I used to own a vfs 2000 and thought there was just too much adjustability. I have had the lrp quantum competition 1 and 2 which are fine and I have a gtx that I think is one of the smoothest speedos I have ever had.

Yeah the GTX is smooth but I have a Futaba MC800C in my 12th-scale and I heard that this one is SMOOOTH. But as far as the adjustability of the VFS-1, I absolutely love it; I have to spend more time with it though to really put it through its paces but it's in a car that I don't race as often as I would like to. Other than KO Propo staff, Hebiki on the VFS-1 Pro thread is the person to talk to on its frequency adjustability. The Keyence in my BD is just simply awesome. No external caps, lowest on-resistance and almost as much adjustablity as the KO. I gotta start playing around with that too... too much adjustability does bother some folks, that's why it always come back to personal preference... -JB

Is that a futaba speedo in your 1/12th? Is it a throw off of any of the speedos out right now? I thought it looked like a lrp quantum.

I haven't seen any votes for the Mtroniks Cirrus, so I'll throw in a vote for it. Its smooth, very programmable (without external devices) and its small. Also, it only uses a very small cap.

And of course you can't complain about the look of it either. That "heatsink case" is about the coolest thing around.

I would also have to throw in a vote for Tekin's G10 series and new G11 series. They are some of the smoothes around and aside from some of the Keyence speedos, they're also the easiest to program visually speaking. They may not seem small enough to some people, but when you consider the size of the cap needed with some of these "small" speed controls, the G10 and G11 series are just as small.

Gotta agree with you too...The Cirrus is awesome...You can run the small cap, but Mtroniks give you their "power cap" - this monsterous cap, that gives outta this world punch...

Programming is a breeze and it "holds" its settings...The Heat sink case is awesome, not too mention Mtroniks "guarntee" of a 100% water-proof speedo (I've testing the water-proof on their lower end speedo - and its PERFECT)

I love mine...Need to find another one to replace my LRPs and Novaks

Cool GTX Rocks!!!

I've been running a Novak GTX for just under a year now, by far the smoothest ESC I have used. I tried the NOSRAM Dominator Evolution and the LRP Quantum 2, the GTX has better punch yet remains smoother and runs cooler than the NOSRAM and LRP.
