Using a Fast Silicon Labs MCU and high quality On-Semiconductor MOSFETs the TrackStar 18A 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. Combined with the quality 4 pole motor this translates in to very smooth start up and acceleration and torque.

I would not get this for a 1/10 crawler because this esc and motor combo isnt powerful enough to carry a 1/10 crawler through the rocks i would suggest the hobbyking xcar 17.5 turn system. Hope this helped!!!!
I just received this combo and putted it in 1/18 turnigy f1 kart and saw weird thing. even without pinion gear when motor shaft is free it acts weird. when going from standing or low rpm to high rpm drastically sometimes it maintenance low rpm for second or two, and after that lag it goes to high rpm if I'm still holding the trigger. Is it normal? some kind of overload protection? or is my esc broken? tested on two different tx/rx and acted just the same. When hitting gas few times it goes normal 2-3 times and then another 1-2 times lags for 1-2 seconds... Halp?
Yes it will work without any issues. I wouldn't recommend the 10T as it is far too powerful and would make controlling your car quite difficult. I have the 14T in a mini-recon and it's already wild with a 2S lipo and crazy wild with 3S lipo! Enjoy.
use it for this buggy . You don'have to change the battery but if you want performance , use lipo 2s or 3s . I'm using a nano-tech 1.3 , 2s in a 1/18 short course truck and it's crazy! the truck is an hsp caribe ....very powerfull...
No, it wont make any differents. The motor you've got now is 4800KV, this motor is only 4300KV. So this motor would give a lower top speed. Remember to credit me, if it was helpful. If you've got any further questions feel free to ask :)
Perfect ESC! Fits like a Charm in the HPI Mini Recon. With 3S the Mini Recon is a Rocket. Like the way to Program the ESC with the Programming Card, let me choose the right Settings (Timing and Punch Cunchcontrol) to not melt down the Diffs of the Mini Recon.
Ordered one of these and it won't fit in my Tamiya TamTech GB-01 Hornet. The widest screw holes are too narrow for the Tamtech mounting plate, and there isn't really a way to drill different holes. Are there any sort of motor mounting adapters or something that I could use with this?
The Shaft of this Brushless inrunner is very long, so you can simply use 1 to 2 mm metal plate or alloy plate and Drill the holes for the Tamtechplate and the Trackstar Brushless motor in 1/4 different angles. so you have enough shapft lenght to mount the pinion.
lol! my motor shaft is completely round, so how should i screw the pinion on it? ^^
are your shafts also round? if yes, how do you get your pinions in place?
on the pictures up there it looks like ordinary shafts with one side flat...
i have this system in my Mini Recon! The Power is a lot! better than the RTR Brushed motor also on my NIMH 7.2 volts. You can set the Timing higher (i use 5) and get more Power. But for me NIMH are quiet good. With the 3S on it, i can only run on large places, its took fast
I have just popped this little monster in my M-R last night. I had to drill 2 new holes in the mount. You will also need 2 new M2.5x6mm screws. Using a nimh battery provided enough power compared to the stock motor but I have chosen to use the nano-tech 2s and 3s 1800Mah Airsoft batteries - wow!
i ran this in my losi mini late. all you need to do is on the losi's motor mount, the bottom screw mount for the motor needs to be drilled closer to the opening for the shaft and the hole spacings is alittle too wide for the motor to mount. works great. it wont wheelie on a 2s on the road though, but its a long car, and fairly heavy. it spins the wheels like crazy though.used this motor in the losi mlm on a dirt oval
With a little modification its fit in a Maverick Atom 1/18 buggy.
Nice and reliable product.
The program card is recommended but with the default setting you can also use.

On team associated 18r
Pinion 14t, 3s 1000mh battery
It is the best upgrade I've ever done
Motor runs cool but the esc gets hot easy fix with a fan
Run time, power, speed is awesome
I'm using it for drifting mostly and bit of street race

The motor does not fit into a 1/18 Losi mini sprint. The bolt pattern does not line up. I am going to try to make a custom motor plate myself because the original one does not work with this motor.

Use my 1:14 truggy, ordered without programcard.. but good working.. Perfect forward, and slowly backward function.
The motor is high power in truggy... :-)
Im upgrade to "game" rc controlled truggy.. dc motor, and PCB out.. and ESC Brushless in to my car.. :-) Nicely and Perfect work.
This ESC working on 12V!!!! :-)))) (gamecar in 12V NiMH cell...)
up to 30 min game time!!!! ( 4 high lighting smd LED)
smart Amper Eating the set.. !!!! :-))))

Excellent little combo. I'm using this in a losi Mini T. It takes just a little modification of the stock motor mount to get your screw holes to line up but other than that installation was very easy. This system makes the Minit T a real blast! Programmed with the least amount of punch off the line (get the programming card as well!!!!) and it still wants to pull the front off the ground! Great little system and can not be beat for the price. Some of the best money I have spent in R/C.
