Absolutely.... Tekin/Reedy. Without hesitation compared with Turnigy.

How much for each system? I have had excellent results running the Trackstar motors and currently have two 21.5 V1, one 17.5 Outlaw and one 7.5 V1 and all are very strong runners.

I also have a Turnigy 80A red sensored brushless ESC in my Losi buggy. Works great, just a bit on the large size.

I have both, right now.

The 80a Turnigy combo is currently installed (was bought new, maybe 2yrs old). The Tekin/Reedy (purchased used) was in my old RM buggy. Both systems are functional.

I'll tell ya - my single beef with the Tekin is the overly-expensive program card and the non-spec JR 3-pin data connection. I am not paying more than $20.00 for a program card and it kinda chaps my hide that I need to shave down a plastic housing, just to get a JR-female to fit.

Y'know, now that you call me on it, you're right. It's not a card, it's a stupid cable!

Anyway, I have a solution. I've got a USB-to-JR male adapter. I just need to make my own JR female jumper cable (shave one of the ends to fit.)
