Default Cayote ESC, Motors, and Batteries

So it seems like a lot of top touring car drivers have made the switch to a very new company called Cayote. Theres absolutely no information on them right now other than a webpage with renderings of the 1/10th touring ESC, some 1/8th scale ESC and motors. There are some actual pictures of the esc from Atsushi Hara and Marc Reinhard, but thats pretty much it. From the looks of these ESC design, they do seem very similar to HW and wont be surprised if HW are the OEM.

Why'd the spell coyote wrong? Not sure I'd trust a brand that can't spell their own name

Because they are not named Coyote but Cayote?

Why would you spell Retro That Muse wrong? Not sure if I would trust someone that can't spell their own name.

they hardly list much. 30 adjustable parameters? Like what? Reverse polarity protection? Also are the capacitors built in or not? Thereís pictures of an esc with no capacitors near the top and on the bottom shows it with capacitors.

without much to go on, it seems like it could just be a hobbywing copy cat. Iíd like to be wrong, but just canít be 100% sure

You do not want to know how it performs but want to know what all those 33 settings are and if a capacitor is needed.... weird....
Maybe it helps to know the brand was setup by Oscar Jansen.

Yep, Oscar Jansen had team up to create Corsatec - another new brand getting about - but now on his own.

(for those who donít know the name, he was a significant name for Orion Electronics for numerous years - well well credentialed and respected in EP racing)

ESC looks to be ZTW to me. Plenty of brands are using them right now, so expect all boats to lift in the rising tide.

motor will no doubt be from one of the big three suppliers out there.

It looks like a fresh off the line version that little to no one has used. Im sure they will say its better than your leading store brand esc. Most things probably are coming from the same manufacturing lines so customer service starts to matter a little bit more. I dont want to HAVE to buy it just to know if theres pwm settings or if its blinky esc, but they show 13awg wires so theres that. R1, hobbywing, maclan, team powers, orca, etc all show the manuals.
