I've seen most ESC quoting two numbers, a continually amperage and a Max amperage.

HW quotes two numbers without citing specifics other than Max and continual.

Tekin quotes 480 per phase. Makes it very hard to do a direct comparison between these numbers.

Perhaps we can get tekin and HW to tell us.

Yes I agree it's not straight forward. I don't own the rs, I have a rx8. That one says max 300 and burst 1000. Don't know why the rs doesn't list both. Hopefully someone will have the answers

When it comes down to it a lot of the "amps" stuff is simply a calculation based on FET specs, board spec, etc.

In my humble opinion you should no shop an ESC by it's amp rating. Good esc's are designed for specific purposes. The RS Pro can handle more power than the Rx8 can for example BUT the RS Pro BE was not designed to run in a mod car nor a 1/8 car. It doesn't offer the fan nor the heatsink the Rx8 does.

For spec/stock racing the "on resistance" is what separates the "men from the boys" here. You cannot compare two ESC's in a class where low IR packs are known to be required, and low resistance motors are known to be required. The ESC is a very critical part of this equation: Low IR Packs + Low IR Motor + Low OR ESC = the most power.

The RS Pro may get too hot when running a 6.5T in a 4wd buggy. You might be able to get away with it if the track is indoors and small. Tekin recommends the RSX Pro for mod 4wd.

Does anyone have a good Blinky 21.5 starting setup for the RS Black Edition? Ran in 21.5 tourer last week and car was notably lack on power compared to the usual esc I used (HW Justock Blinky and Maclan MMax Pico) same motor / batteries / gearing etc, lap times up about a half second a lap and confirmed with a Futaba GPS reading (SBS-02G to R334SBE receiver and shows on my 7px) my top speed went from 68kph with the HW, 68 with the Maclan to 61 with the Tekin. Have tried recalibrating to the radio in case it was an end point issue, and am in locked spec profile, moved to no current limiter but puzzled why all of a sudden down on speed. Put the Justock esc back in, and back to 68kph. (Battery is a 5500mah Nosram charged before each run to 4.2v/cell)

Motor is a Team Powers Actinium V3, 40 degree endbell geared 2.9 fdr

Nothing from the Tekin Paid reps / Fanboy brigade?

The RS Pro BE is used for stock racing, it is only rated down to a 13.5T motor. The RS Gen 3 is rated down to an 8.5T motor. The reason you would pick an RS Pro BE for stock is that it has a lower internal resistance, this basically equates to more speed.

According to this:

Technically it is rated to take more, its just isn't recommended due to no heatsink or fan. RSX Pro would be more what you want for mod.

Correct, in fact I spoke to the tekin guys at an event a few years ago right before they released the BE and they told me about the Be and said the RS Pro actually has more FETs and can handle more current than the RSX but that because it doesn't have a heatsink it can't dissipate the heat as well.
