They will "cremation" other manufacters with the new big wharehouse/USA factory

Track racers will buy sensored motors from Castle, finally

They opening the doors for me is a big plus... they are showing now what some (me included) customers want!

Take a peek at the factory and know that they really do their job... not just like ZTW throwing 220a 6s esc's outhere to the world esc, that actually are not made for 6s, but THEY have adervertisemnt's that is 6s capable!! , leaving customer's and Hobbyshop's (yes more deep then we think) with no warranty besides having invoice and less then 2weeks of NO USE, and never answer emails... ok, thanks! Goodbye! Gonna tell the world what you are doing... Zero Thrust Wins

Default XLX/XL2 is Not only option. Max 5 is fine.

XL2 is not the only option. MGM is the way to go but most are too cheap to fork over $600 for a proper ESC. Alien is an upgrade Flier supposedly which they are known to burn your cars to the ground. The BL5 or Max 5 does fine in speed runs so not sure whatever he is talking about. Only issue we ran into was overtemp protection can kick in but it's easily remedied by a Wild Turbo Fan (WTF) and then the ESC will out perform a XLX/XL2. Because there is no data logging most guys who've used them have no idea why they cut off and make presumptions it's something else. Hobbywing was thinking 1/5 scale driving not 100+ mph so they used a very small and mostly adequate Fan in the majority of cases. We are running 100-130mph RC's with the BL5 and upgraded $15 Fan and certain it will go even faster yet. Our most recent build in a 1/8 buggy converted on-road is expected to go 150mph if it pans out as calculated. Waiting on a few parts and it should be ready to run soon.

Here are mine side by side. I like the fact that the XLX already has the capacitors installed. The overall design is very similar though.
