I would have to disagree.. I haven't run that esc.. but it is rated at 120a.. 2s 1/10th offroad down to 6.5T...

As long as he uses the heatsink/fan if using a mod motor he should be just fine..

good luck!

its a copy of the hobbywing 1s which is designed for 10th pan car and 12th scale wgt.and is designed more for 1 cell racing without the need for a booster. he can run it but why save 20 bucks or so to step up to a better esc if your gonna eventually have to replace a 67$ esc. the hobbyking 100 amp is a much more suitable suggestion http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...ESC_1_10_.html .. theres a reason hobbywing/speed passion and a few other brands dont recommend using that esc for offroad.

or even this 120 amp http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s..._Car_ESC_.html

Yes, it is designed to allow for the use of 1s without a voltage booster but, it can handle 2s perfectly fine. I haven't heard anything from Hobbywing or Speed Passion about not using that esc in off road applications.. what matters is how many amps it can handle. 120a is 120a wither its in a 1s esc or a 2s-3s. The specifications posted on that esc, as well as on the hobbywing 1s esc state that it can be used in a off road car with 2s down to a 5.5T or 6.5T motor . That esc is more than capable of being run in a Dex210.. as far as the reliability of that company I don't know.

I personally would recommend a Hobbywing esc.

the only reason i went with the hobbyking was because of the size. the hobbywing was too big for the Durango 210> also there is thee specs on the hobbyking esc.
The Turnigy TrackStar One Cell 1/12th and 1/10th scale ESC is the latest addition to Hobby Kings Sensored Car ESC range.

The TrackStar One Cell features a built in voltage booster for single cell Lipoly use in 1/12th and 1/10th scale racing. An additional heat sink and cooling fan have been included for 2S 1/10th race applications making the TrackStar One Cell a truly versatile ESC.

Using a Fast Silicon Labs MCU and high quality On-Semiconductor MOSFETs the TrackStar One Cell 120A ESC sets a new standard in high quality yet affordable car ESCs. With Intelligent MCU logic the TrackStar series ESCs allow extremely precise start up control and positioning feed back from the motor. This translates in to very smooth start up and acceleration.

Timing Indicator LED.
To conform with ROARs Sportsman Class racing rules and assist race organizers monitor driver compliance in non-timing modified race classes the TrackStar 1/10th ESC includes a timing mode indicator LED. At all times when the ESC is powered on and dynamic motor timing is set to a value greater than zero the white LED will illuminate indicating that the timing mode has been modified.

The Turnigy TrackStar One Cell 120A ESC also boasts a host of programing options not usually found in an ESC at this price and can be programmed with ease via the Turnigy TrackStar programing card (sold separately).

I have been running this Esc on my 210 for a month now with no fan and a boosted 8.5 with absolutely no issues at all, I also run it on my DESC boosted with a pro4 4000kv also without any issues. Its rated at 120a!! It only specifies 1s because of the booster, everything else is the same! Fan not needed on the 2wd.

Awesome to here that! The specs just said he needs to use a fan and a heatsink..so that's what I recommended if he is useing a modified motor since I haven't run that esc. Awesome to know he doesn't need it though! Thanks for the input.

Are you talking about the Hobbywing 60A/120A? I fit one in my 210 without trouble.
