Default Discussions about Orion vortex R8 pro

Making a thread about my personal favorite 1/8 scale esc. You guys may know it as the Team Orion Vortex R8 pro 180 amp esc. We at trains and lanes hobbies dubbed it "The Cinder Block". This thing is big, however one of the smoothest most powerful esc's on the market. I now post the impressive specs:
Type: Sensor/Sensorless
Constant/Peak Amps: 180A/950A
Resistance: 0.0002
Function: Forward/Brake, Forward/Brake/Reverse
Car Type: 1/8 Truck, Buggy, Monster Truck, 1/8 On Road
Motor Type: 4S LiPo up to 3,000kV, 6S LiPo up to 2,400kV
Battery Type: 6-18 NiMH/NiCd, 2-6S LiPo/LiFE
BEC: 5.75V/3A
Size: 56x46x35mm
Weight: 105g

I am currently running this in my Mugen mbx 6 eco w/ tekin 1900 and absolutely love the feel. I plan on putting 1 in my losi 2.0 truggy also. Looking for others who run this and their thoughts on it.
