Default Speed Passion ESC always out of stock - alternatives?

Are Speed Passion ESC's EVER going to be in stock? The SP Reventon Pro or 1.1 has been out of stock forever. Aside from Tekin, which I already have 3 of, what other "great" ESC's are out there? I'm willing to try something other than Tekin which is why I looked into the Speed Passions. But at this point, it's been several months and it's not acceptable. What's the holdup? Does anyone know?

Given that part of my work involves cyber security, I'm very weary of just "sending my info or credit card information" to untrusted sites. Once you send your credit card info to Russia or China, (or outside of the US to me), you're screwed.

I've ordered a Reventon Pro 1.1 ESC/Motor combo a couple of weeks ago, and I received it within that week. I had no issue with them when using paypal. They are the US warehouse for Speedpassion if I'm not mistaken.

Reventon R, Reventon S, Reventon Club Spec, Hobbywing Justock. Just to name a few more. And at Novak's price, I can have at least 3 of each of the others.

And yes I have run the Justock and the Reventon S for blinky, no looking back. I currently have 5 Justocks and 2 Reventon S models. I've had GTBs and GTB 2s. I still have one in my Son's VTA car, but it is big and bulky. I've run Tekin RSs in boosted, blinky 1S and 2S configs and while very good, aren't worth it for stock racing. Spend the extra money you save on good batteries.
