When in doubt stick with a stock motor.

I agree with Lonestar. It looks like a futaba. Since most cheap ESC's can handle mild mods I would play it safe and not go any lower than a 19 turn unless you can confirm the make and model to get the correct specs. Hope this helps.

This esc is for sure a Futaba but not the MC116,
the MC116 has golden fet on the side, not on the top like this one.

Definetly has to be a futaba, but as was stated,, its a good idea to stick with stock or 19 motors.

Guys I hate to disagree but I dont think it's a futaba at all.
I think it's something thats been produced by FMA direct with the sticker removed.
Either it's that or a older futaba but futaba is usually a lil cleaner on their boards than what I can see.
Either or I wouldnt go much lower than a 17 turn.

P.S.I wanna make a statement for all you new guys.
19 turns are plenty fast.Even on the road in straight out speed wars a 10-12 turn will only be a small margain faster.But you will Drastically loose runtime,abuse equipment,burn up brushes and comms ALOT faster and it really wont be that much faster.
To each his own but being a LIL faster for all the added trouble?
No thanks.
Les

With the grey dials for tuning and the L.E.D, off to the side I really do think it's a FMA direct esc.For those not knowing FMA is a company that makes budget servo's and had a decent esc for the money a couple years back.With the internal wires and the cheaper looking dials Im turning away that it's a cheaper futaba even.

stock is different IMHO... stock IS very budget-intensive.

In Europe we don't run 19t, we run 17t for "sport" classes... And I agree entirely with Les. They're plenty fast.

It does look like my late MC116 (which I fried with a 540 under 8.4V in a truck btw... )... But it could very well be somthing else, it's been sooooo long...

Later

it's not added trouble it's called the fun factor. one of the guys at the local track is smoking me with a 19t by a half second a lap going faster through the corners but my 8x1 is a lot of fun down the straight. I'll probably run 19t at serious races but for club racing it's fun to go fast! but then again I have been racing for 18 year.
