I'm not sure how the motors run but the ESCs seem pretty good. I have 2 frds who have installed a 80A & 150A ESC on their buggies. Both had temps of abt 45 degrees celcius after abt 10mins run. I'll be ordering a 150a as a spare.

I have the EZRun 80A and 150A ESCs which are the same overall design as the XeRuns, but the XeRuns are smaller (shrunken PCB, newer layout). The 80A I ran in an E-Savage and it never broke 120F even in 95F weather and I don't let it cool down between packs. The 150As I have in my truggies. After a full run in about 85-90F ambient, the ESC is about 120-130F. I like the performance to price ratio of the Hobbywing ESCs. The EZRuns are HUGE, so they can be difficult to fit in some vehicles. The XeRuns are much smaller (had one for a brief moment) and are now fully encased (the caps are covered too now) which is nice. I run the EZRun 3665SL 2300kV motor with the 80A and the 3674SL 2350kV and 4465SL 2000kV motors on the 150A. My 3674SL died recently so now I run it with a Neu-Castle 2200kV. With the EZRun motors, it doesn't cog much at start...just a tiny tiny bit. With the Neu-Castle, the motor cogs quite a bit more on the default ESC settings.

The 80a is paired with a Neu while the 150a is paired with a Tekin RX8 motor.

I sent in a bad 80a (old style) 5 months ago and I am hoping they will send back the updated version. Hobbypartz said they will ship it back to me in 1-3 weeks. I am wondering how the new xerun motors run. Hobbywings site said more than 90% efficient, and their four pole not two like the old one's, which were crap. Their 1/10 scale combos are great, bullit proof and efficient. I hope the new 1/8 stuff is as good.

Where did you hear the new XeRun motors are 4-pole? To my knowledge, they're still 2-poles.

I don't know how to link the page, but go to BuggyBrushlessShop.com. Then click on the Motor/esc link on the left of the page, then scroll down to the xerun motors (not the combo), that page says 4 pole rotor.

I run Xerun 80a with 2250kv motor on my 1/8 redcat short course truck. It's crazy fast and no serious problem encountered so far.

Can you temp the motor and esc after a 10 min run?

I don't have any temp gun right now. My 3200 lipo lasts 20 min, after that, motor was too hot to be touched in more than 3 sec, but I think this problem can be solved by installing motor heatsink and a strong motor fan. What rig are you going to power with this?
