I have this esc on a team associated rc8.2 e with a tekin motor, and can I tell you this thing is a monster, this esc on 6 s has never seen over 110 degrees running a 25t pinion and a 44 t spur on a 6s spyder lipo. , I recommend this esc to anyone that wants to go fast, and the data log is amazing, I use to run the rx8 escs but never again. I hope this helps with your decision making on this esc.
I am using the mamba XL2 with a Tekin T8 Gen 1 in a Losi 2.0 truggy. It feels that it have much more torque and speed than the usually 1/8 ESC (Mamba Monster, Rx8, Xerun, I have proven all of them). It is a little bulky but it worth to try. I am racing it in a tight track without jumps, and i feel that I have more advantage under the trigger.

Have several now of this esc on both 1:5 and 1:8, love it ! Have had atleast two tekin rx8 died on me, i thought they where good but now i have given up on that brand, they just cant handle hard driving like this or mamba monster max or pro. I like the tekin engines, but never again a tekin rx8 esc.
