I currently have a HPI flux brushless system in my S3. I have heard that it isn't a good match for the chassis.

People have told me to get a Hobby Wing brushless system. Do I need to get sensored or sensor less?

Sensored systems give smoother acceleration and offer a mor linear acceleration curve.

A sensored system will allow you to drift easier as your throttle input will be accurately conveyed to the motor.

Sensor-less systems can vary widely as there is no feedback to the ESC.

Gotcha, that is what I have heard from others.

I have heard alot of people are running the Hobby Wingz combos. Which is better, the XErun or the EZrun?

Been running XERUN ESC's for a long time, as well as Just Stock ESC's. Bang for buck there is nothing better.

Im pretty sure EZRUN are not sensored.

XErun is the only option there as it is the sensored version.


Might also want to check out hobbyking, as their ESCs and motors are sensored, and much cheaper! I can't advocate them yet, but in a couple weeks when they arrive I'll give you some good feedback.

I am running a sensorless 35a esc from hobbyking that seems to be running strong, and that esc was only about $20!

XeRuns would be the best bang...been running those and have been extremely happy.

I did get my order for Speed Passion but haven't installed/tried it yet.
But or the money, tons of drifters use the Xerun systems very successfully with no problems

I'm having an issue with it. It's lost reverse even after programming it 3 times no reverse. And how difficult is it to solder the wiring to it the heat sink eats the heat before the solder melts I think that may be why I've had issues having to hold the iron on it for so long the heat sink got hot enough to burn me lol

Ive got a 60a soldering iron that is the answer to any of those issues! Too hot for lots of things, But for this I feel more initial heat is key.

Just had a nice drift session with a friend of mine, we're drifting smooth concrete in the tunnels at school, weathers getting wayy too cold in this hemisphere for outdoor drift. The tunnels are great because of the looks we get!

Oh one quick question, I just got in a couple center gears I ordered to change the cs ratio, but now I feel 2.14 is perfect. What would lessening the cs ratio do from a handling perspective?

well all the talk about sensored and sensorless im wondering if this is why it is so frustrating for me to drift this car
here is my motor

I've been having the same problem. Sometimes the reverse works, sometimes it doesnt. Usually what i have to do to get it to reverse is adjust my throttle trim forward a bit and it will reverse, then i set it back to neutral after. Another thing that worked for me was not pushing the trigger all the way forward when programming the ESC. Not sure why this problem happens though.

Thats pretty heavy duty for drifting!

If it's anything like the past few SC trucks I've driven with similar setups, I can tell you it's probably gonna be hard to drift.

Sensored will give you much smoother startups, which will make it easy.

For people just learning CS (including myself!) learn it the right way:

That way you can look like a pro when you start taking those slow-mo go-pro videos!

Well that's how I've been trying to learn CS, avoiding "turning in"
