The GTX is a great ESC. If you get the GTX you wont go wrong. I run the GTX and it is awsome. 7 different profiles, with one custom profile. And its smaller than the other two. (correct me if I'm wrong).
Go with the GTX. I even saw a difference when i switched from the GT7 to the GTX. Hope this helps.

Chris

All the above mentioned are very good ESC's and you can't go wrong with any of them. However the Hara Twister line does not have a warranty. But LRP/NOSRAM and Novak are both great choices.

Only flaw I see in the GTX is the setup button is kind of awkward to deal with. Overall though its a great ESC.

All are good ESC's. I would however wait several more weeks to make a decision as the new LRP is supposed to be available in early December.

Hi Guys,

The Novak esc's do not have a lifetime warranty. Unless that is something new. I will have to check into it. I have run Novak esc's for years (I currently have more than 12 of them in my tool box) and my opinion is that they don't last as long as I think they should.

I tried QC1. Did not hold up either.

Currently I am running 4 of the KO Propo VSF1 esc's. So far they have been excellent. I am very satisfied. Much more adjustable than any other esc. This is the same as the Hara Twister. The Ko VSF1 is sooooo good that it is being sold under serveral names by several excellent companies Hara, Tamiya, Rayspeed, and more. I don't know of any other esc that is sooo good that the top racing companies want to sell it under their name also.

Good luck

Hello,
I bought the new MRT MX PRO esc.
Very nice, good looking, 100% waterresistant, several profiles, impressive performance on the track and with a unbelievable launch control.
Looks very promising.
