Default Turnigy TrackStar ESC

How'd, I'm looking @ running a 3.5T motor in our B44.2.
I was wonder if anyone has run one of the Turnigy Trackstar esc'c with this wind motor, if so which esc was it ?

They run well with a 6.5T motor but our esc can only handle 4.5T motors.

I would like to run one of the Tekin RSX's but cost is prohibitive to bring one to Aust.


Cheers

you're better off buying a different wind motor 3.5T will not be easy on your ESC. its not worth risking damage.

I know I'm no help, but I'm just curious. What application are you using a 3.5T motor in a B44.2? Is it oval racing?

Only want to use it for fun, 6.5T would be our norm but got a good deal on the 3.5T so I thought I'd have some fun, just need a esc that can handle the 3.6T motor.

This TrackStar ESC (http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...grammable.html) is rated down to a 3.5 motor. I have absolutely no experience with any of the TrackStar ESCs, just a couple of their motors, but looking at this ESC in particular for a 4wd dirt oval late model with a 5.5 application.
