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.

well, i the exclusion of an onboard BEC was probabally a good thing, since most ESC's don't offer up enough power to operate a decent large servo for a baja

There is nothing even close to this in price for 1/5 chassis. Very, very cool. Maybe this ESC will make an appearance in a brushless version of this sometime soon?

I would still remove the middle wire from the plug for a bit of added safety( if I were to get a beast large enough for it)
current RC's//Stampede xl5 (with BL)//litehawk pro4ch(similar to syma107-g)//

I had this esc in beta form... It fried on my first use... I have pics of it if you dont believe me... lol

It felt REALLY nice, but it smoked the first time I plugged it in, and I know others had the same issues....

I hope its all worked out by now....

I was going to run it in my savage TCS 5b... Now im running a Mamba XL2....

I can see this popping up in a few 1/8 MT projects too. The fact that it's 8S capable might be a selling point all on it's own.

Pretty sure it's a rebranded skyrc: http://www.skyrc.com/index.php?route...product_id=161

Kershaw Designs carries them as well, but is currently out of stock.

I think there must be a main factory in China and they just sell unbranded items to Toro, Hobbyking, etc etc and they just stamp their name on them.
It seems like you can always find at least 3 of the exact same Chinese RC items with different names on them...
