Recommended ESC's and Receivers
Hey guys, I've been trying to look around the site but haven't really found answers to my question: one of which should be obvious.
Right now I am running a CPR-01 in my Tamiya TT-01. I believe it is the stock esc/receiver. I have been looking at upgrading my ESC, but I noticed that you need a receiver as well on the chassis. How does the receiver hook up to the ESC? This is the question that should be obvious, but I haven't found out how. Is there a plug from the receiver to the ESC?
Also will upgrading the ESC really help much for the car/performance if I keep my Cobalt Pro 27T motor, and will I still be able to use my stock Tamiya Tx?
And like the title implies, I am not sure what ESC to go to if I do. I've seen a couple, but I am looking at the Novak XRS, Mtroniks Viper 15T, and Duratrax intellispeed 8T.
Right now, I might be able to get the Duratrax intellispeed 8T for $60 shipped. I looked at the options and it looks like a great ESC, but it looks like it is really fragile/ any sort of moisture would hurt it.
The thing I like about the Mtroniks ESCs are that they are waterproof, so in general they seem like an almost maintenance free ESC. However, how does it have a heatsink, and does it heat up quickly? How often is it that an ESC is damaged by water?
Basically I am just trying to figure out how the ESC/receiver combo works, and some recommended ESC's/Receivers and Tx's would be awesome too.
I am a man of few words.
