Default Will the Turnigy/Hobbywing 60A ESC fit the b4 and other 2wd buggies?

I've got a Novak GTB, and I already have a hard time fitting it in my 4wd with the fan. So I was wondering if the Turnigy would fit in my Associated B4? I want to get a ESC that fits nicely in there, and was hoping this would work.

If it's too large, then I guess my only option is to get the Tekin RS, but money is tight.

Anyone have experience with this speedo?

If you're talking about the EZ-Run 60A V2 (which is what I think the Turnigy is), it *should* fit.

Take a look at the link for my for sale in my signature for the DF-03. If my Hobbywing can fit in that chassis, it should have no problem with anything else.

The DF-03 has a VERY tight layout for electronics. It's very similar in layout to 2WD...


EDIT:

Forgot to mention. One of the things I used to do with my RC10CE's ESC mounting was, I would mount it above the battery, towards the rear end. Companies like RPM used to sell "ESC" brackets that mounts to the rear shock tower/bulkhead.

I wonder if these things are still being made for modern cars. That would put the ESC right inside the "driver's" seat inside the body....

Yeah it fits but has to be mounted on its side to clear the body

Any other options for a affordable Brushless ESC that will lay on it's back and fit in the b4?

Thanks for the pic!

what kind of motor are you planning to run? I run the Speed Passion GT2.0 Pro in my Academy GV2 buggy which I believe has even less room and a tighter fitting body, and I don't run the fan and it fits fine, motor is a 9.5, no heat issues.

That little turnigy / ez-run ESC is actually pretty good. I was very surprised at how well it worked when I had one considering its sensorless.

for the speed passion or the turnigy you could see about running the fan in front of the ESC, would keep height down.

It really depends on what you mean by affordable. Tekin RS Pro is the only other one that I can think of that's even more compact.

Why not mount the esc on the battery brace?

just take the fan off the HW esc and mount it on the chassis so it blows across the speedo's heatsink. works good for me in my gv2.
