Default Mamba Max 2 or Tekin RX8

What one do you prefer? I broke my rx8 but i really liked it it was very easy to program and it had the sensored or sensorless option which was really nice and the castle system doesn't have that but it does have waterproof. It will be running 6s and a tekin t8 motor 1700kv in a emaxx.

Rx8 esp. If you have a Hotwire already plus you have a sensored motor so might as well take advantage if it

Well its basically do you want a more performance oriented ESC or weather proof. Me personally I would go with Weather Proof.

I really loved my rx8 until it got a little drip of water on it. I think it will be my favorite esc and i hope to get another one for summer. But anyways i ordered a MMM2 as i can't risk another $200 esc getting damged by WATER. I will report back

And plus if it does get damaged by water castle will replace it but tekin won't.

Yes very true. They say the fan isn't waterproof, but it is the exact same like the vilineon fan and the veilneon is water resistant so I'm guessing if you don't drive in a pool it will be ok for snow and mud etc
