Tekin RS Gen2 Sensored Brushless ESC
Best ESC out there, super easy to install, solder and set up. You have to get the hotwire with this ESC though or your missing out on soooo many features. This is the only ESC I am putting in my vehicles now. Looks really dialed with the optional black case. I just cant pay $250 for an Orion when this ESC does everything it does and more such as the option for 7.4v bec output, completely customizable Boost/ Turbo/ timing profiles, you can even set up your delay for reverse. Best of all, Randy with Tekin is constantly active on the forums and always helps with concerns and support.

Tekin RS Gen2 Sensored Brushless ESC
Finally Tekin has come out with a super smooth esc. If your wondering if its worth the upgrade from the RS then yes it is. I just sold my two Rs's and buying another Gen2 RS. Great job Tekin!

Tekin RS Gen2 Sensored Brushless ESC
This is a very good esc. I'm using it with a reedy m3 17.5 and it runs like a gem. Smooth and plenty of punch. For stock racing this is a great option to consider. Also, the newer software is very nice. A lot better than it used to be.

Tekin RS Gen2 Sensored Brushless ESC
I've been running the Gen2 since it first came out. Super smooth acceleration and brakes and with the hot wire app on my S4 I can make small adjustments anytime with ease. The esc stays cool and is just a work horse. Love it!

Tekin RS Gen2 Sensored Brushless ESC
Smooth and Fast! Qualified 0.4s from TQ at 2014 Snowbirds Nationals in Carpet Oval Tour COT using the RS Gen2. Telemetry built-in makes it even better (RPM curve, Motor Temp, etc) .. awesome!

Tekin RS Gen2 Sensored Brushless ESC
Amazing speed control. Smoother operation throttle and brake response over Gen 1. Improved brake tuning as well. Improved boosting features if you run unlimited stock or if you want to add some extra power to your mild modified motor. I run this ESC in most of my 2wd cars including an 8.5T Redline Gen 2 in my SCT and ESC does not get hot and performs flawless. Onboard tuning allows you to make a large array of adjustments on the ESC but getting a Hotwire allows you to update the firmware as well as unlock many other features including data logging and fine tuning of many other features which is an invaluable tool in getting the most out of this ESC and our car. Tekin hit this out of the park. Side note: You can now use Hotwire with your Android devices to help with the ease of track side tuning. A computer is still required for data log information and firmware updates.

Tekin RS Gen2 Sensored Brushless ESC
I own 3 of these ESC. i use them in My Buggy, Crawler, Sprint Car and SCT. They are incredibly Smooth, provide limitless tune ability, and Tekin has the best customer service in the Business.

Tekin RS Gen2 Sensored Brushless ESC
Own two of these. I think they are the best ESCs I have used for 1/10 buggy when using a high-voltage servo. I would recommend this ESC especially if you are making a choice between Viper and Tekin. This is better, trust me.

Tekin RS Gen2 Sensored Brushless ESC
I run these in both my 22T and 22SCT and they were flawlessly. They are extremely smooth and always run cool. I have paired this with LRP, Tekin, and Novak motors and several different turn motors and it always runs great. I bought this as a combo with a 10.5 motor. These will definitely be my ESC of choice on my next 1/10 vehicles.

Tekin RS Gen2 Sensored Brushless ESC
Coming from the orion r10 pro the rs gen2 is not as good. There is a slight delay going from forward to brake. This is probably not noticeable if you are coming from other brands. The r10 pro responds a bit quicker. The rs gen2 is still pretty good, but not as smooth as orion. Considering that the rs gen2 is only $35 cheaper and can only take stock motors(8.5 but it's not safe to take it to it's limits) I would go with the orion because it is still smoother and more responsive and has no motor limit.
