The Turnigy TrackStar 1/10th scale 60amp Sportsman Car ESC is the latest addition to Car ESC range. Using a Fast Silicon Labs MCU and high quality On-Semiconductor MOSFETs the TrackStar 60A Sportsman ESC sets a new standard in high quality yet affordable car ESCs. With Intelligent MCU logic the TrackStar series ESCs allow extremely precise start up control and positioning feed back from the motor. This translates into a very smooth start up and acceleration.
The Turnigy TrackStar 60A Sportsman ESC also boasts a host of programing options not usually found in a 1/10th scale ESC at this price and can be programmed with ease via the Turnigy TrackStar programming card (sold separately) or on your PC via "Skylink".

Turnigy Trackstar 60A Sportsman ESC
Seems like it works on Rattler. I have emptied 4 batteries so far and the ESC seems to work just fine even though the car is 1/8 scale.
However it can overheat if placed in the Rattler's "dustproof" box. On warm weather (+23°C) it shut'd down on me at least twice while driving aggressively-ish. I've installed a fan (not included) so that shouldn't be a problem anymore.
Brake strength is really strong as default so it might be a good idea to lower it with programming box.
For the price it's 5/5.This is a great small blinky ESC, I have three. For example using one in a brushless Tamiya M-05 racer, while the 13t/3000kv class-spec engine ran very hot (type fault apparently), the ESC itself remained cool even in the 10-minute main and provided plenty of performance.
It also has excellent programming options via the separately bought program box, including options that are not present in many $100+ ESCs (including my Hobbywing XR8-SCT and Speed Passion Reventon Pro 1.1). Although a minor annoying point in that regard is that the ESC setup has timing and turbo options even though you can't actually use those in this ESC, so they clutter the settings menu needlessly.
Overall, I don't think you can do better for the price for when you need a small, light, cheap yet reliable ESC without timing! The value of money is simply amazing here. But do remember to pick up the programming box with it (Trackstar multi function smart program box).I bought another sportsman esc because I needed another esc and it was on sale. Quality in these is great and they work great. Programming is easy with program box and esc has enough setting for most user.TrackStar Sportsman 60A ESC is very nice speed controller for the price. It has all the programming functions that you really need. It has worked great so far. Recommend!I have couple of these TrackStar Sportsman 60A ESCs and I like them very much. For the price these are just great. Great options for programming and works great.I have one of these for 17.5 2wd buggy. Very happy linear and no issues using the Trackstar Multi-function Program Box with it. I am buying another to race 13.5 Stock 4x4 Buggy.Can't beat this ESC for the price. Get the HK multifunction program box to access all the settings, and there are a bunch of them like punch, and turbo, just look at the list of settings, and the program box is only $11 bucks or so and doubles as a USB link.

It also supports sensored and sensorless motors. Calibration was straight-forward, and so was accessing all the settings with the program box. Just read the directions and you can't go wrong. It operates in blinky mode.
I bought 2 of them so far, and they are rock solid. Stays pretty cool without a fan, but I don't have them geared very high. I will definitely be getting more of these little gems. Easy 5 stars.Good price and quality, very compact. Easy to program by TrackStar Multi-Function Smart Program Box. I'm using it in crawler. For strong servos I recommend to use an external BEC.This TrackStar Sportsman 60A 1/10th Scale Sensored Brushless Car ESC is very compact and it's a good choice for tight build. Easy to programs with many options. Overall very nice ESC.very good 60a ESC.
