Default Cheap Taiwan quality!

Manticore- The front upper A arms on my LD3 has split already- where the PB screws into the arm! It was fine when I first put it in...one day later I noticed it had split....be careful!!!!!! I haven't even finish building the car yet!

MC400CR or V6R

Hi everybody,
I want to replace my acoms at-6 whith a new esc. Could you compare these two speed controllers for me? I would like to have your opinion, because I am so confused.
First one is Futaba MC400CR. I think this one looks more expert when you look at the specs. 10+ turns, frequency : 2500 Hz., 4,8 V- 8,4, reverse disable, many accessories. Everything looks great, but I don't find detailed info about breaking (how many seconds?) and reverse operation (is there any delay).
The second one is GM V6R this one has less frequency, that means (at least, I think so) less sensitive accelerator and breaking. But the other side It has great break and reverse operation. First tab is the break, then the second tab is reverse. 12+turns, frequency: 1000Hz. 4,8V- 12V Thank you for your help.

Both of them are not popular in HK. One thing to remember is don't rely too much on those numbers. The figure given is best case number, and they never give the condition how they get those number.

haha....if you are running during the day with the sun shining you may be better off trying 40R....of course this depends on the grip level of the track.....
