Yea xtm uses those also. look up on youtube videos on the new xtm with the viper system in it. that should give you a good idea of what it does in a 1/10 buggy. they seem pretty decent. i would just try to find user reviews. i personally havent used it if thats what you were looking for. but its pretty new so i dont think anyone has had the chance to try it out yet. like i said, your best bet is to prob find user reviews for the people that did get it.

After running Novak only for 20+ years, I made the switch to Viper about 6 months ago and can't complain.
I ran a Viper VTX10 with a Novak 13.5 in a SC10 offroad, now tryin it on carpet oval and am close to running with the Tekins.
Still expermenting with esc programing, car set up and gearing, but I am within less that 1 to 2 tenths of a second behind.

Have not had a single issue with it, so I highly recamend what Viper is offering. Very pleased so far.

Do you have any links? I can't seem to find anything relating to a Viper system being used in XTM vehicles (YouTube or otherwise).

Viper RC is some high end stuff. It's on par with Tekin, quality-wise. XTM's stuff, on the other hand, uses Hobbywing electroncis. Please, don't confuse the two. It's like confusing a Tekin G11 with one of those Chinese Futaba MC330R copies.
