Jan,

Castle creations, Phoenix Ice Lite 75 amp is very popular. I have two, one on each racer. Gives you the capability of downloading each battery run with all kinds of information.

Check it out.

Hi!
Thank's!
I saw the list Randy has made! Good! But what about the much cheaper Turnigy 60A controller? Any good?

Hello Jan,
I have used Turnigy Plush 60A with different motors from Kv500 to Kv1500 and it works fine. Haven't burned it yet. I'm not familiar with how to fine-tune it for EF-1 racing. I have a programming card so I can change the timing. Anyone who know if I shall I shall set it high or low?
Go fast, turn left!

I use the Castle ICE 100 lite. The turnigy plush series ESC's work very well too.

I use the 100 lite because it is only slightly more expensive and you get a lot more esc. Only $18 difference.
