Default Losi 8ight-e 2.0 Buggy - Are people still having issues with the ESC?

I'm considering a Losi 8ight-e 2.0 buggy....

I recall a few weeks back people posting that the ESC were dead out of the box and that Losi seemed to admit shipping out a bad batch.

Just wondering if people are still experiencing this?

The ESC is probably okay if you don't ever upgrade the firmware. My ESC worked out of the box and had a few minor errors with throttle curves etc. I upgraded my firmware to the latest v2.2 and after that there has been issue after issue.

You don't have to go far (losi forums - xcelorin section) to see all the complaints. Multiple people including myself have reported errors to the xcelorin team and 4 weeks has gone past with no firmware upgrade or fix. Losi has really dropped the ball here. Other than the ESC, the motor is pretty good and the chassis is awesome.

Best advice is buy the MM 1/8 from castle.

Hmmm.... Same old complaints....

I wish Losi sold the 8ight-e without a motor and ESC....

Thanks for the input!
