I was not certain if this ESC was truly capable of powering 13.5 wheeler, however a few gent's overseas advised that this little speedo was fully capable for competitive 13.5 wheeler, thus the only suggested option part to add was a Hobbywing quad capacitor which I did from the get go. Anyhow I will get straight to the good stuff. This super tiny gem of a speedo fully powers my 13.5 wheeler and does so flawlessly. Smooth, strong throttle and top end with insanely strong brakes. Really amazing considering this speedo is so very tiny. The quad super cap is very helpful and a minimal $10, thus highly worth adding to this speedo. Don't worry about the speedo's tiny size, or the thinner 14g leads as this speedo really has it all and to add more the adjustable 6v to 7.2 bec per HV servo is a great option, thus as well is an another indication on the power this little speedo has. If your looking for a tiny speedo, with huge performance, t HW's XR10 Pro Stock Spec V4 is a perfa choice.
I have this little gem in my Tamiya TA07. It took me a while to figure out how to upgrade the software. I also had to program my radio to the esc. First run was a little soft, so I replaced the single capacitor with 4 from another dead esc. That was it, it now has pop and braking is brilliant. No need to go to 12 gauge wires. I am going to order another one to replace my heavy XR10 Pro 160am esc. It's about 25 grams lighter; )
Fantastic ESC. I have been running this for a few months in my 13.5 4wd buggy, it has tons of adjustability that really helps to dial in the car for every surface. I will now be running it in my new 17.5 2wd buggy. Hobbywing makes a great product! Highly recommended.
easy to program, excellent feel. and a huge weight savings in my 13.5 buggy. dropped it by almost 30 grams.
This is an amazing little esc! I wouldn't consider using anything else.
I have been using this esc for several years. Like it because of the small footprint and miniscule weight. Also, the program port/fan plug lets you change programming without having to remove plug from the receiver. All around good unit, good support.
This is the best stock esc hands down. If you run stock class the this is the esc you want.
Great quality esc very small and compact not as versatile
as the discontinued $99 v3.1 100a that can run 5.5-25.5
It’s Just a better version of the JustStoc 60a no reason to discontinue the 100a.
This $120 esc can only run 13.5-25.5 not as much value as $99 100a that powers 5.5-25.5
Very sad this 80a has replaced the 100a v3.1
This 80 amp esc is the go to for stock racing. It has a super small footprint, it’s lightweight, has great braking, and they are fairly durable. The one issue I had was the esc fan breaking multiple times after hard crashes. Can’t wait for a G2 version.
I installed one of these on my 21.5 B6D based street stock oval car. It worked great, for 2 heat races and the main, that I won. Unfortunately, the next race night, it wouldn’t turn on. When I pushed the power button, the ESC fan made a half of a revolution, and that was it. Changed to a known good battery, still nothing. Checked the battery in the car, fully charged. I put in a repair request with Hobbywing, I guess I’ll see how that turns out. Giving 3 stars because when it worked, it was a excellent ESC. Unfortunately, $119 is a bit much for a 3 race ESC.
This is a really nice esc, especially for the money, and it shaved weight for 17.5 2wd buggy class. The one star written on this esc is meaningless, they need to figure out how to calibrate their throttle and brake spans. This esc has plenty of brake capacity
Love this little guy! I am running in my Yokomo YZ-2 DTM2 with a 17.5T motor. I normally run ORCA only and was a little concerned trying something new. I am really happy. Smooth power, very responsive. The space this thing saves is great. The wires come soldered already and are way long enough for any buggy. It also come with a fan that I have not had to use running blinky on 17.%.
I have 3 of these units and they all run great. The person that only gave this one star needs to set up his radio.
Ive Been using this esc this past year in all my stock class racing from 13.5 to 21.5 and its perfect. Light weight and reliable. Highly recommended.
Very compact and lightweight. Easy to mount in any vehicle. Just like every Hobbywing speedo I’ve ever run, acceleration and braking are very smooth and consistent.
Great system love it in my slash 2wd thanks amainhobbies for the detail and fast service.
Compact size is great for 2wd buggies, light weight do it helps keep the weight down for spec. class buggies.
Easy set up, great size, worked great first time out. Another great speed control from HobbyWing.
This lil esc kicks butt very responsive gas and brakes.You will win races with this esc.Very light tiny fits real well on my TAb6.1 buggie.Has all kinds of features,very easy to use with the esc program box.
Never got a chance to use it as on the first practice run white smoke came out and when I tried to reach hobbywing I never got an answer... Worst experience with electronics...
