Default ESC

with the Airplane brushless ESC getting cheaper everyday like asian made +100amps are below 100$ combining this with fegiao inrunners which will be below 150$ less reverse and brakes course. would this be possible setup for a 10/buggy just for bashing? how much is the minimum ESC amp rating be?

the problem with aeroplane ESC's is that they have a soft start, so the voltage will slowly increase to full power, and your buggy/truck will come off the line slowly. it would work, but not have the performance you require.
