    lots of guys on here have good things to say about hobby wing, and castle. on the sensord and sensorless that is beyond me. more experienced guys on here will help (they save me all the time). but they will want some more information, what are you trying to accomplish, driving style, on road or off, any other upgrades done

    good luck

    1. Sensored motors and esc combos have a "sensor " that tells the esc where the motor is in its rotation, which equates to a smoother start up and better low speed control. Sensorless motors will have a harsher start up, once up to speed it doesn't matter anymore.

    Just make sure the esc is capable to move a 1/8-Scale vehicle. Brand is preference, I'm running a hobbywing product, am happy with it.

    Concerning sensored / sensorless, I personally feel that for a basher setup, you don't need to run sensored, but it's probably nice to have

    When you get the new esc, you have to calibrate it to your receiver. Just letting you know so you don't miss that step and end up with odd results. The step is usually the first one in any esc manual.

    If you go with the hobbywing, get the max6 at least. It can handle the power better than the max8 but isn't as massive as the max5. Also get the program card/box. Makes it easier to set the esc up and make changes.
    Expert rigging at it's best!
