If I recall, the GTX is one of the best ESCs you can get, it has no turn limits and highly programable. If you can afford it, you should be happy using it.

The GTX is a great esc it will certainly handle a 12 turn motor I think it';s rated at 7 or 8 turns.

I'm running a Twister 2, which is the Hara edition KO ESC. Great ESC, no motor limit, and has a fairly aggressive mod setting programmed into it right off the bat. I use it for stock with out reprogramming it and it works great.

I have just the normal KO VFS-1 and it is awesome, top notch. Extremely programmable and easy to use.

But you cannot go wrong with the KO or the GTX, both get the job done.

Later,

IMO i think both VFS-1 and GTX are great ESC...however it seems to me its much cheaper to program with the GTX.
I have the VFS-1 and so far its doing a great job
