id say itd be fine, but the last Duratrax esc my friend bought melted. He had his car sitting with a battery plugged to the esc with the on/off switch turned off, and it burned up. Dont know if they fixed that tho.

Not, Duratrax is more for "sport" applications, you will want to try something more top of the line if you plan on racing.

If you plan on racing....then definetely move up to a "name-brand" esc.....NOVAK, LRP, TEIKIN. for stock, you want the lowest resistnace possible to get the most power of the motor. I'm a fan of Mtroniks, I run the cirrus.....but when it comes to the brain of your car, you might consider a smart one.

Spend a little more and get something that is more widely accepted as a competitive esc. They aren't an area to cut corners for cost on.
