Default Losi Xcelorin Brushless

hey all: I would like to know if there is any updated info on losi team driver testing of the new xcelerin brushless motors and speed controller in terms of not only how they like them,but also what classes they perform best in? Thanks

I've been running the speedo and a 10.5 and 13.5 for over a month now. Its worked flawlessly. The motors are as fast as all the legal 13.5s out there and my 10.5 hasn't gotten outrun yet.

The brakes are much better than the other brand I tried before I got the Losi stuff. My motors don't get very hot either, speedo never has been higher than 110 degrees.

I haven't run it in mod and probably never will but for 10.5 and 13.5 I think its as good if not better than anything out there.

Sensored or Non-Sensored? I didn't think the Sensored line made it to retailers quite yet.

I've been running the sensored version. The first few made it to the market this last week.

Ditto all of Larry's comments.

Granted Larry has run a lot more touring than me lately, the 2 times I've run my Xcelorin speedo and motors... speed has not been an issue. Not to mention, when you make setting changes on the speed control, you really feel the changes. Both the 13.5 and 10.5 have run awesome and they are ROAR approved too. The speed controls are in stock at Horizon and all the combo setups motor/speedo should be coming soon.

Sure this makes me mad.... I really wanted to try the sensored version but as I started ordering parts the expected release date went from late April to May so I decided not to wait and ordered a Novak system.

I even spoke to a tech and he had no clue as to a release date.

Maybe next time....

check out www.losi.com

go to their brushless systems seccion and check out the specs and features and you'll see its not a GTB.

Xcelorin.....Hmmm......For some reason it sounds like a pharmaceutical drug name. Not a good name for a speed control. By the way what are it's side effects!

they are not tweeked GTB's and have nothing to do with Novak. I've run mine in 13.5 rubber TC, 17.5 1/12 and 7.5 electric offroad truck. It's very smooth and completely adjustable via a PC or the programming card. I haven't used the programming card yet but the PC interface plugs into the receiver connector of the esc. I've been completely happy with mine, it's very linear compared to the slow, slow, slow, slow, full speed feel of other brushless esc's I've run.

You'll notice in the picture you posted that the servo and switch leads are in the typical JR Brown / Red / Orange colors. What does that mean?!?

ok ok, shoot me, i was not trying to bash it. I was asking an honest question... Just like one would ask when comparing the ICE to the BLOODY ICE.... All the hardware or most are shared but the internals or softwares are different...

If its a GTB base thats been built onto and or improved than we can openly admit it no?? Its not a knock on the ESC just an observation....

This is a similar observation we see comparing chargers and motors and other electronics we use..... its not the lame comparison people make when a new shaft drive TC comes out and someone says hey it looks like a TC3/4 when all that is similar is the shaft!! LOL


Im looking for a Second BL ESC and after finnally gettting over the size of the GTB would consider the losi in my short list mainly for its programablity its on my list with the speedpassion,tekin and lrp......
