This is the big one! The one the 1/5th Baja boys have been waiting for!On 8s this ESC is capable of supplying enough current to product in excess of 5800W - That's OVER 7.5 HP!!Our New 200 amp TrackStar sensorless ESC for 1/5th scale cars and gas to electric conversions, it features a full alloy housing with two external fans to ensure it keeps its cool, even if pushed a little too hard the inbuilt thermal protection is in place to protect your investment. Then there's the huge 8 Awg battery & motor leads supplying the juice, this esc has been built with one thing in mind - RAW BRUSHLESS POWER!Our TrackStar 1/5th ESC is an 'Opto' type; meaning that there is no inbuilt BEC, you will need to use an external Ubec to power your RX and steering servo.This ESC is programmable via the TrackStar Programming card.Specs:

Amazing ESC, be sure to pick up a programming card as well! Great build quality and pretty decent electronics to! Best value for money for suregreat esc put in a 1/8 buggy and the the speed was amazing until the car crashed and front diff exploded and the esc shot out the front of the car and still works fineThis is my custom E-maxx based 1/5th scale short course truck. It's paired with the Redcat 980kv motor. I've run 4S, 5S, and 8S with this setup and it has been a great ESC. I've only run it about 5 times, but ESC has yet to get warn (including when I forgot to plug in the fans, lol). I'm posting now because so many people are having issues initially that I wanted to share my good experience. Strangely enough, the "other" 1/5th scale controllers have their horror stories too, but some still recommend them...oh well. I plan on picking up 2 more (1/5th scale E-maxx based monster truck and for my converted Redcat Dunerunner).wow got my second esc and had trouble again,little puff of smoke,did not even get to program,or check for correct rotation of motor,ended up disassembling esc and found two areas that were burnt,looks like I have to put back my vorza 6 cell esc and stay with that till I can afford something different,i doubt hobbyking will take this back after I took esc apart.I give this contrivance full points on all accounts. First, it uses components matching truthfully to its advertised voltage rating. Second, its sensorless startup and running algorithm is much more intelligent than the average air controller. It can detect cogging and pole-slippage and will automatically try to open-loop run the motor at lower and lower rotational frequencies, until it pulls in. From there, startup is rapid.
It's designed for 1/5 scale R/C cars, but starting at roughly 1/4 scale and down, you might as well just ride it yourself! See Youtube: /watch?v=ydWABtLXjlo To do this properly, your sensorless drivetrain needs a very high (typically 15 or 20:1 and up) gear ratio. The startup performance is virtually flawless and the power available from this setup with a Aquastar T20 motor on 8S exceeds 4000W in a ground application....which is a huge deal.I run on 1/5 GT Car, it's the 3rd time i drive this scale, normaly on 1/8 off road

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uk553xzfdqg&feature=youtu.beI have had 3 go bad on me!!! J U N K!!! Cool lipos and cool motor. I bought the BEC from here so I quit. Castle XL2 from now on.It work very good with that trackstar 1/5 esc in a baja......the standard gear is great 57/14 ! You don t need the programing card...it already programed for all lipo.
Nice gadgetHave only tested it 2 times so far on my e-bike. I only draw about 70amps in the bursts and 20 when at tops speed (stays ice cold for the whole ride) so not really pushing the esc. I use it on 5cell and it works good if it fails on me I will defiantly come back and make a new review.Very nice ESC, typically I dont run anything but Castle Creation or Tekin ESCs. However I have cooked 2 Mamba XLs one was a first generation and the next its replacement a V2. At that point I was fairly aggravated with Castle Creations and decided to give something else a try. I am glad I did this ESC is by far a better buy at 1/3 the cost of a Mamba XL, and so far doesnt have any of the Mambas issues. The lack of a BEC is somewhat inconvenient, but when dealing with large scale servos plus cooling fans an internal BEC really doesnt have the power you need anyways. I use a 2 cell LiFe where the T/B servo used to sit in my 5ive and that works perfectly, plus you can keep the fans running between runs to cool down the elecs.
