Default DO NOT BUY EZRUN! Wait until the end of September!

WHY? because I emailed someone at hobbywing.com and asked them if I could buy direct from the manufacturer and they sent me an e-mail saying,

Hello, Sir

We have stopped such a combo because we will market a new verison 150A ESC at the end of Sep. It is called "XERUN-150A", and the motor is also changed to new version which has a much higher efficiency than the old version.

Thanks!

Best Regards!

Sure the 150A will be more than capable the 80A ESC does 1/8 now

OK I want to make my 1/8 GS XUT pro brushless it weighs about 5-10 pounds and I will be rebuilding it completely so it will have new oil and such. What setup would you suggest for a basher? I might take it to the track every once in a while also. I am looking for speed and power I am not worried about breaking anything BTW the arms are the thickest I ever seen in a rc.

Here is a link from lower turn to higher, The esc must be 150A.

The 150A setup is what.. 220? The MM is 250 brand new on ebay. You can also get a refurbished one from castle for 225.

So buy it refurbished direct from Castle, even if the shipping is $50 or something that's still more than $200 cheaper than the link you show.

I would just save up an extra pay check, and not eat out for 2 days, and get the MMM.
