ESC Reccomendations Needed

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have been going blind checking out ESC's for my rigger and have no clue what I'm doing. I'm looking for an inexpensive ESC without reverse for a 10T and up brushed motor. So far I have a Futaba 2PH transmitter and receiver, a Traxxas 12T motor, 6 cell 7.2Volt 2000mah Nicad battery packs. Could anyone reccomend a decent inexpensive ESC for this setup.... Thank You in advance

Re: ESC Reccomendations Needed

I think for brushed you can use almost anything, (old car one). Most electric guys seem to be going with bushless and lipos since it makes a huge difference.

If you go that route, the two solid choices that I know of are either Castle Hydra's or ETTI Marine ones off eBay. Hydra's will be more $$$ but are based in Kansas and have a good service reputation. I have never run a ETTI but the posts on OSE and Rum Runner are pretty positive,
