I have this ESC/Motor combo in my Serpent 811Be 2.0 and it rocks. I had a Hobbywing ESC before which blew up on me after only 2 races and I replaced it with the Tekin. It was like night and day to me and I really love the Tekin. I have the hotwire interface as well which is really cool as it allows you to change many settings and also to download team driver setups to load straight into the ESC with ease....

buy this esc with a 1900kv tekin motor for a MP9e, also buy the hot-wire too. esc only last 10 packs… my batteries where the reedy 4S 4600 55c… hot-wire setup as per ryan lutz on tekin website… will not buy tekin again… go for another brand
Austin Blair
I recommend this for 1/8 electric buggy. All the top speed you could ask for while having the perfect amount of bottom end power. No issues. I have had zero thermal issues with this combo.
Adam Drake
My motor and speedo choice for 1/8th electric buggy racing. Great combo!
Casey Peck
Perfect combination for my 1:8 Ebuggy. With so much power in the 1:8 Ebuggy class its very important to have a smooth power delivery. The RX8 delivers a very drivable power curve and will handle the longer mains without heat problems. Pretty much infinitely adjustable with the hotwire module. Highly recommended!
