Default LRP ESC's?

Hi guys,

just some quick questions,

1/ what is the top spec LRP ESC for 10th off road?
2/ does that ESC come with a fan, does it need one?
3/ How reliable are LRP ESC's?

I had a Novak GTB when I was last racing 18 months ago, it was very big and a pain in the a*s to fit because of this.

I love that LRP blue case

Thanks

Rob.

Top LRP off road speedo is the;

LRP SXX TC version 2 with fan ----4wd-----Not necessarily needed for off-road
LRP SXX version 2 without fan-----2wd

I have had LRP/Nosram for years and they have proved faultless, on the one occasion I had a LRP SPX stock spec that was faulty they replaced it within 3 days with a new upgraded one

Top speedos and top customer service.

ALWAYS run the fan especially in off-road 4wd and if you run hot motors
Sorry!!

I have a SXX TC and a Sphere TC. The SXX TC works well but the Sphere TC had a failure and it seems they need weeks to get the esc replaced. I always raced LRP stuff when i had brushed motors and speedos but since there is brushless i noticed that quality seems not to be as it was with the brushed stuff as i had also had 2 Vector X12 motors that had problems. I always checked temp. and correct gear ratio but they these problems had nothing to do with it. LRP changed the motors for free but it always took more than 2 weeks.
Don´t get me wrong, i read A LOT about good experiences with LRP/ Nosram stuff. Maybe it´s just bad luck but since i have spend so much money on these electronics and had 3 broken items i am not trying a sensorless Mamba Max combo for 2 reason:
1) my mate ran it the whole season without ANY problems on the same track where i race
2) it is much cheaper than the LRP SPhere TC esc alone. (Sphere TC is about 180 Euro, the complete Mamba Max Pro Combo Motor and esc is about 140 Euro).
If the Mamba Max won´t be up to my expectations i will try something else but for now i am done with the LRP stuff...
