Cool moving to brushless. any advise?

Hi there,

I want to get a new esc + brushless motor. Any recommendations? What are the things I should keep in mind? I heard there's an overheating issue usually. Anything else?

What are you using it for? Racing or casual play? I think that will make it easier for the guys to recommend something.

For casual use I'd recommend the Hobbywing EZ-Run series, very good cost-performance combo for getting into brushless.

For racing, I use the Hobbywing XE-Run 120A, also very good performance for the money you pay. And I really like the convenience of the programming card, no need for a laptop like the Tekin RS, which I also used to own.

Sorry forgot to mention that. I am looking for a racing spec.

Advice anyone?

I want to know more about the different brushless motors. What's commonly used for 1/10 onroad racing, and the good brands to look for.

Thanks

I agree with rc_square24. All I do is race. And I have raced mod touring with the Ezrun 60 amp esc & the Ezrun 10 turn 380 base motor. I was undefeated last year with this combo.
This year I've been racing my Xerun 120 amp esc with the Novak SS motors, 10.5, 13.5, 17.5 and 21.5. The great thing is that I've won more races than I've lost with less motor than anyone else was running.
So as you can tell, I'm a BIG Hobbywing fan.

use a castle sidewinder sct esc with a 4300 kv tacon motor. if you dont have a lipo get a 2s 5000 mah gens ace and a thunder charger

you can get the motor and lipo at hobbypartz.com and the sidewinder at ebay

this should cost you $125. very nice setup
