Default EZ RUN SYSTEM Any Good???????

Im building a t4, and was looking at the ez run systems. Does anyone run em, just looking for some feedback. They are very inexpensive compared to the big name manufacturers. Thanks

I have run the EZ Run ESC, 60 amp version and combined with a 9.5 motor it worked well. They also have a nice small footprint.

I have had several EZRun 60A ESCs paired with 17,5T, 13,5T, and 3300kv 4pole Medusa motors and all run amazingly. They're very smooth and hardly cog at all. They're well made also. In fact Hobbywing makes the ESCs for Speed Passion, Venom, and Orion so if you buy those you're just paying more for the domestic name brand. There will be those that will say they suck because they're not marked up due to domestic branding. Of course domestic branding offers domestic customer support so some of the additonal cost is justified but the bottomline is HW makes quality parts. Its up to you if domestic customer support is worth the price difference but don't let naysayers convince you that HW ESCs aren't good. For me IV had none die and that includes one that was with a motor that shorted which often times takes out other parts with it.

I have an Ezrun 60A with a 8.5T motor, no problem so far with it. Easy to use and programming, very nice on the track.

They are standard equipment on the Caster Fusions. I've yet to be disappointed by them.

I bought the 60A version as well because I needed something small and budget friendly for my DF-03, which has very, very limited space...

They work great...

I have the Xerun 80a esc and I am definately a fan. It is the replacment for the EZrun high voltage series of ESCs. I run it on 4s with a 2370 motor geard 26/84. The truck is an emaxx and it was very fast and reliable. Always stayed cool and never gave me any problems at all.

EZRUN SYSTEM is the cheapest system your going to buy that's going to give you the performance.Anything cheaper than ezrun won't be worth the risk for your money.

wow, thanks fellas. Im kind of new to the electric scene. Im setting up a t4, and was looking at the ezrun systems. I saw most were running 60a esc's. Some 80a esc's. Im lookin to get a 13.5 motor, which i didn't see any combos for sale with the 13.5 motor. Given the motor im looking at (for stock truck class) Which esc amperage wise should i go with? 60a or 80a. And what kv should i be looking at. Any suggestions are helpful, thanks guys!

Had experience with the Ezrun 60A with a 8.5T motor before, no problems at all, easy to use. Affordable and reliable

For anything smaller/lighter than a 1/8 buggy, the 60A is fine. There is a considerable size difference between the 1/10 ESCs (25, 35, 60A) and 1/8 ESCs (80A and 150A). In anything 1/10-scale, you don't need more than the 60A...it's a workhorse that can take more than you expect.
For kV, that depends on the type of vehicle and battery you plan to use. I'd recommend a kV that will run between 30-40krpm with the battery you will use. If it's 4WD truck/ST, I'd recommend something in the 3000kV to 3500kV range on 3s. If it's a lighter/smaller vehicle (2WD ST, 4WD buggy, etc.), you can go higher kV and run 2s.
