Default Which cheap esc

Before we start, please dont go on about buying spending the extra & buying quality escs .This isnt for a race spec car.
Im asking about cheap esc's
smiley face, not wanting to p*** anyone off

Any recommendations for cheap 60A - 120A BL esc's
Ive been considering these

The X-car is a Hobbywing clone , so I can use my HW USB programming card .
I dont need the fastest, just something cheap & reasonable quality.
Ive also considered genuine Hobbywing, but there are far to many fakes out there that I may as well buy a clone . I have been caught out with fake HW esc's in the past.
Its going into a SCT, so I dont want to risk a expensive esc getting bashed about.

I know the X-Car can do strange things if you flash the wrong HW software into it (eg run backwards) .

I'm not in the US , so would need to buy from HK, rcmart etc.

First one you listed is decent. I would avoid the other two. If you have a few more bucks, try this one:

trackstars are good so are the xcars -- I think a good question is the usage what size motor are you planning to use? also is it for the track or bashing around the yard, I have the cheapo xcars in my race rigs and they are fine never had a problem.
