This is the LRP "Flow" WorksTeam Brushless Electronic Speed Control. The hardware and software of the Flow WorksTeam have been designed completely from scratch; the speed control can now be universally used with modified and stock motors. Due to the multitude of mode setup options, the Flow WorksTeam can be precisely adapted to both modified and stock class racing.
Apart from its unique software, the Flow features a machined aluminum 2-piece case which acts as a heatsink transferring the heat efficiently to the outside, keeping the speed control running cooler in all racing conditions. A high-power output over the entire RPM range and the simple yet flexible adjustability are only some of the features found in the Flow WorksTeam.
With an already outstanding pre-release performance at the 2012 I.F.M.A.R. TC Worlds and 2012 Off Road R.O.A.R. Super Nationals, the FLOW WorksTeam is sure to be the most sought-after competition brushless speed control on the market.

The LRP brakes and punch feel are what bring me to purchase what is now my 3rd modified vehicle’s LRP Flow ESC. I’ve found I don’t need the fan on it, where I do on my HW G2 160A, Tekin G1 RSX, Orion Vortex Pro, or Reedy 1000Z+.
One negative, true of nearly any ESC, including this, is the power switch fails with abusive driving (Read crashes), over time. Just cut it out, and solder the conductors/heat shrink.
Pros: Great Feel, Super Smooth, Good Brakes Small Package.
Cons: On/Off Switch broke after 2 months of racing, and rainbow wiring is an eye sore that will require a quality soldering iron to remove.
However, ESC will function as intended even with a broken on/off switch and if you can look past that it's a great ESC to have. I give it 4 stars only because of my broken switch.
