Default 3s ESC

Hello, I am looking for a good and cheap (hopefully under $30) ESC for my recently rebuilt Kyosho Ultima. It has a brushed motor and a 3s lipo 25c. Could anybody recommend a cheap but reliable ESC because the one I purchased from eBay has just started malfunctioning. Thank You

Although that 60A Quicrun is rated for 3S, I wouldn't recommend it for sustained usage on 3S, I would spend the extra $10 to get the 80A version which is rated for 4S instead:

They are really for any vehicle, but extra popular with crawlers using brushed motors because they are cheap and good quality. Exactly why we are suggesting them for you You probably see it advertised for crawlers, because they are so popular now. Crawlers use to run almost exclusively brushed motors but now they have some decent sensored brushless systems that are suppose to be pretty good.

Even though it has low current it can still run the car at high speeds correct?
