The Turnigy TrackStar 1/10th scale 100amp car ESC is the latest addition to Hobby Kings Sensored Car ESC range.
Using a Fast Silicon Labs MCU and high quality On-Semiconductor MOSFETs the TrackStar 100A 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 in to very smooth start up and acceleration.
Timing Indicator LED.
To conform with ROAR's Sportsman Class racing rules and assist race organizers monitor driver compliance in non-timing modified race classes the TrackStar 1/10th ESC includes a timing mode indicator LED. At all times when the ESC is powered on and dynamic motor timing is set to a value greater than zero the white LED will illuminate indicating that the timing mode has been modified.
The Turnigy TrackStar 100A 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 programing card (sold separately) The Turnigy TrackStar 100A ESC also included 3 x 12AWG Motor wires and 2 x 12AWG power input wires.

I have been running 2 of these esc's for the past 4 years. Both in 1/10 Touring cars, one powering a 17.5 turn and the other a 8.5 turn motor. They have been performing flawlessly without any issues.Very happy with this ESC. I'm glad I didn't buy those overpriced esc's. I run a Tekin 13.5 motor with this and it's perfect. Just needed to get used to how to setup, very tricky without the program card.This thing is limmited to maximum 9,5 turn motors. It should be mentioned in the specs on here. I smoked a 17,5 turn turnigy trackstar motor. I thought I made a mistake constructing the drive system of a car, and that it was sticking somehow, and next moment smoke was comming out of the motor. It was a matter of seconds. The motor seems OK and i opened it, but could not see any damage. Hopefulle it was just smoke from some oily residue or some thing that create the warning. The motor was very hot, but I still could tough it at least. I removed the sensor cable, and now run it as sensorless, and so far it do well with no problem at all. I would not bought this if I knew about that limmit on the motors.ESC works well on a 2s lipo.
Very smooth power delivery and works well on a 5100kv motor.
I've tried using 3s lipo but esc can't handle 3s as in the reviews below.
on 3s it seems to shut down with out overheating.High quality and design! :D Nice!Unpacked the ESC, installed it in the car, soldered the wires to the motor. In accordance with the manual the motor/speedo should beep to confirm the calibration steps. Does nothing, won't turn at all, the only thing the ESC does is getting hot on the bottom. You should consider buying this esc, I've yust lost 50$ plus shipping!!!1/10The product impressed me at first but use it three times and was cast with settings: Turnigy nano-tech 3000mah 2S 25 ~ 50C, Turnigy TrackStar 5.5T Sensored Brushless Motor, shame not to trust this product.Cool ESC, somehow sounds nice when you switch it on and the fan starts blowing. Got it in combo with the 8.5T trackstar sensored motor. Great pair, ran it very fast for a while, motor got pretty hot due to gearing but ESC was still cold. Should of had a red heatsink like the trackstar motors :) Had nor problem with the leads (anyway the can be replaced easily) on my slash 2wd.this esc is perfect for my tt01e drifter on a 6.5 turn Novak Sensored so far no issues. only thing i dont like is the sides of the esc seems very open to the circuit board which makes me concerned if i ever do stray near a open puddle by accident
