if you would run 4 S you must turned off The esc (do not turned on)
and using the Receiver pack(booster), just like the 1S.
But never Run Low wind Motor / Mod Motor.
if you do this you take your own risk.

It would be awesome if there was a brushed firmware for the xerun and/or ezrun escs. Cheap brushed escs with lipo cut offs aren't very common.

Hobbywing are about future technology so I'm guessing they would have little interest in reviving the past.

The sooner brushed motors become extinct the better.

The idea of using something that becomes landfill all too soon when an alternative that lasts several years exists is the clincher for me.

Have to admit though I do love brushed motors in crawlers with Castle Mamba Max ESC.

Lots of RTR cars still come with a brushed motor with an esc without lipo cutoff. If ezrun escs could run brushed motors someone could upgrade to lipos without having to also upgrade to brushless in the same step. Plus there are silver can classes, which is what I would want it for.

There is no need for a voltage cut-off in an ESC, as long as you are conscious of when the car is slowing down and stop it. If you are still worried, external low voltage cutoffs are available.

I run a brushed sealed can motor in my Xevo mini, with a Keyence ESC and a LiPo. The combo works brilliantly. Brushed motors still have a place in the hobby.

Cutoffs are absolutely necessary if you ask me. All it would take is one slip up and now you have a battery that just might burn your house down.

Hobbywing make a Lipo cut-off that can be used with brushed ESC's.

http://www.hobbywing.com/english/Art...?ArticleID=402

It's not expensive and it works well. In fact it is actually capable of monitoring the voltage of the individual cells as well as the total voltage of the battery.

cheers.

I would agree when racing where they probably cause more problems than they solve.

Bashing is a different story though where they are undoubtedly useful.

Hobbywing TQ's 11.5T stock at the thailand international touring car race.

More than 40% of all esc's used in open brushless are hobbywing esc's (not sponsored esc's ) the sponsored class was the FWD class wit the justock esc and 13.5T motor sensored combo.

Cogratulations to Mr wong from china for the TQ

what are you talking about? cheap stuff can't be fast, only the most exspensive mega dollar shit can be fast! money buys speed fool

I would say there is undiscovered amizonian tribes that know HW manafacture ESC's for some "other" companies. to not know that, and be a "famous touring car driver" is....
