This ESC is probably one of the best ESCs for brushed motors in RC cars. It has very useful programming options, is waterproof and it light and small. Well worth the extra money over the cheap options. I use it in a monster truck, on road F1 car and will use in a buggy as well.I've been using mines for a while on my SCX10 as a trail rig with a variety of motors and set ups and it's been great!
Ambient temperature is still quite cold where i am. Around 10C / 50F. Running a 17 turn 540 motor on 3s lipo, bashing it around on the beach and crawling / up hills it didn't even get warm. Cold to the touch.
I ran it on a 1600ft hill walk over about 5 hours, through thick mud, up steep rocks etc. 3s lipo, 21t GoolRC 540 motor and 13/87 gearing. The ESC didn't even get luke warm where as the motor was on it's limit.
After playing around with the settings i've finally got it running how i want it on a 65t motor. With this motor the ESC is silent. No whine from it at all which is great for scale driving.
The LVC works great. Around 3.8v for the high setting so just perfect for storage after running.
There is no shortage of settings and having the little remote box to change settings without having to unplug the ESC is very handy.
It's 100% waterproof from my experience. I've submerged it fully several times just as it is, and it's never so much as glitched once.
For the price, this ESC cannot be beaten. It's better than some of the other bigger brands that cost 3 x as much.
