The Losi ESC and Motor combo can be had for a lot less than other sensored brushless ESC's - almost seems too good to be true....
I ran the 10.5 a couple weeks ago at the Delta Fireball Classic here in Lincoln NE. It was just as fast as anything else on the track and it didn't thermal like most others did while trying to keep up with me. So yes, it's fast

they are excellent value, i have a 10.5 and 13.5, i havnt run the 10.5 yet, but the 13.5 is easily on par with any of the other brands, i'll be running the 10.5 this weekend..

Matt, can you tell me what timing you had it set at on ur 10.5?

obviously i am not Matt, but my reccomendation is to run as little timing as you can and gear for speed, timing tends to generate heat. then use timing as a fine tuning adjustment IF needed.

thanks mate, thats what i've been hearing, i ran the 13.5 with the standard 6 deg timing, geared conservatively and it was still very quick and temped at 110 after the race, i know where i should be gearing the car, i'll drop the timing maybe to 2 deg and check temps and go from there

Looks like my friends problem with his excelorin was the LVC. It's seems it's overly sensitive. Even on 6v it was cutting in, he's since turned it off/nimh mode and no problems. I think esc needs to wait a fraction of a second longer before engaging the lvc.

Matt, to bad about the rainout last week would have liked to have been racing. I know it's nitro this week and I'm not going to be racing but I would like to come up and have you checkout my system if that would be alright.
Thanks Alex

Questions?? Ok to shorten motor wires?

My new Xcelorin 10.5 is in and it runs great! Just one question...as this is my 1st brushless system I wanted to make sure it was ok to shorten the motor wires? I ordered a shorter sensor wire, so that is taken care of. Just need to know about the 3 motor wires.

Thanks.

Is the Xcelorin happy to run fanless with a 13.5?

I finally got to run my Xcelorin speedo this weekend and have to say it is very nice. I ran it with a Novak 13.5 and felt it was pretty smooth. I am impressed enough to get another one, once the funds permit me to do so.

Yes, you can shorten them as long as you don't make them too short that you don't have enough length. You are not hurting anything by doing so.

if your running TC it may get hot depending on the air temp. In a buggy you should be fine though.

Best quote of the offroad season yet-"Get out of the way! you're not even a contender!"- author to remain nameless

That sounds like a famous quote I heard a long time ago:

Drive-thru!
