Team Orion Vortex R8 Sensorless 1/8 Scale Brushless ESC (130A, 2-4S)
This esc came in my friends kyosho rtr but after my 150 amp hobby wing died (reason unknown) he gave it to me. I have been using it since with no issues. I would say it is an excellent esc for the money. I'm running it in my 1/8 hyper star e with tekin t8 1900kv and savox high torque servo.
