Default LRP Works Team or Orion R10 Pro for 17.5 & Mod sedan

I have a LRP Works Team and the Orion R10 Pro.
I am planning on only keeping one of the esc for 17.5 & Mod touring car.


Is one better than the other or are they both pretty much the same?
Any input would be great....

The Team Orion has much more settings availeble. so you can tweak it more to your likings.
It also has more World winning titles on it's name ;-)

I personally don't like LRP stuff.
Braking power too weak for me. And it is so inconvenience to tune it without a program card.
Orion esc is a better choice although it is OEM by hobbywing.

To be honest, you can not go wrong with either. Orion is easier to program. I find the brakes to be really strong on my Flow's. I run LRP motors though. Lack of brakes could be timing issues between Timing sensor and ESC. Both are smooth.

I have been told for 17.5 Blinky, that the Flow comp is punchier, less FETS internally. I run the Flow Comp for 17.5 Blinky and a Flow Works with Mod motors.

I agree on all counts - both are good ESCs, with the LRP being a better choice for spec racing (better brakes, IMO), and the Orion being a better choice for modified since it's far more adjustable. I was going to try both ESCs, and keep the "winner"; I ended up keeping both.
