The Turnigy TrackStar Turbo series of ESCs offer excellent performance and features at a great price.
Featuring a CNC alloy case which incorporates the heatsink for the Mosfets, neat terminal cups for both the battery input and ESC output cables. The ESC software has a large number of user programmable settings such as Punch, initial brake, drag brake, boost timing RPM, boost timing, Turbo timing, Turbo delay, Turbo ramp, boost acceleration - allowing this ESC to be customised in nearly every way you could ever need for 1/12 or 1/10 scale on or off road racing!
So what is Turbo? Well simply put - Turbo is a short duration burst of top end motor RPM and power - best used sparingly, it is similar in effect to KERS on the current Formula 1 cars but it doesn't stop after a few seconds! The Turbo function is fully user programmable too, so you can adjust when the boost kicks in and by how much.
TrackStar ESCs have superior throttle linearity for smooth start-up/acceleration, excellent brakes and have fully adjustable programming options.
These ESCs have been purpose designed and built for the toughest RC vehicle applications and offer durability, quality and very high performance for a lot less than you might expect to pay.

According to customer service, reverse is not available without the V2 programmer which is out of stock.its not on the small size but a lill trim of the wires and it will fit I been running the v1 80amp no issues in a almost a year I sold my $200 esc going trackstar in all my veicles still can figure out how to program with hw software but program box its all you needits not on the small size but a lill trim of the wires and it will fit I been running the v1 80amp no issues in a almost a year I sold my $200 esc going trackstar in all my veicles still can figure out how to program with hw software but program box its all you needI normally run Maclan Electronics, However for my Dirt Oval , it gets pretty nasty fast and rather then Wrecking a New Maclan MMAX with mud, I bought this esc. The Trackstar works well, lacks the smoothness of my other competition MMAX esc's, but is a good esc for dirt oval. It lacks the PC programmable feature and finesse need for a off road race though and the throttle response feels like it has steps and not a smooth transition through the throttle throw. If you need a beater esc, than go for it, otherwise Spend the money on a competition level unit.bought one , like it. got the program card as well works a treat. very flashy. fits in my 17.5 b5m snug.
