Default perfect Brushless ESC for 1/8 scale electric?

Looking for a Brushless ESC for a 1/8 scale electric car, 4S battery. Sensored operation is a must. Which would be perfect choice?

I found Hobbywing have a new Xerun XR8 ESC coming what looks pretty good for the job but it seems not out yet. Any other choices?

Is there a 1/8 ESC what can do dynamic timing as found at the 1/10 ESCs?

TTB brushless setup with 6S... If money isn't a object its in a league of its own.

I know of the TTB but price is out of this world. Im not interested in 6S either, 4S is the way I want to go.
Currently thinking of the Hobbywing SCT Pro maybe but not sure if this can do dynamic timing.

Wow. That's a heck of a price tag on that ESC.

I gotta ask... what makes the TTB so much better than an RX8? For 4x the price it better last forever and make me breakfast.

I've seen those TTB powered 8scales run around the track with 6S lipos, and they are way slow compared to my (1721gram) tc4 Rx8 4S/Novak HV4.5R.... Maybe the 8scale weight and belt drive requires a super expensive esc to get the job done....lol....
