This is the Viper R/C VTX8 Sensored Brushless ESC with an included EZ Link programming card. The Viper VTX8 is more than just an upgraded VTX10, much more. The VTX8 was designed from the ground up to handle the punishment of the most demanding 1/8 scale and 4wd short course applications, with the durability to come back begging for more. Plus, the ability to operate on either 2S or 6S LiPo batteries, as well as sensored 2 pole, 4 pole and 6 pole motors from 540 up to 1/8 size from any manufacturer, and an adjustable BEC that can deliver 7V for your high voltage servos, makes the VTX8 an incredibly flexible system.

Combine this with waterproof construction, a full aluminum case and a fan with a carbon fiber brace that helps to efficiently dissipate heat, and you have an ESC that will propel your rig to the finish line and beyond, with reliability that your competitors can only dream of. These features make the VTX8 an excellent choice for high power applications when you need a reliable system, with virtually limitless programmability that does not require a PC.

The included EZ Link is the same size as a credit card, and is used for tuning the speed control while at the track without the need for a computer. The innovative V-Port on the VTX speed control allows for programmability without removing the speed control wire from the receiver. This means less wear over time and you never have to dig into your receiver to make an adjustment. All these features are complimented by Viper's 365 day limited manufacturers warranty on all electronics for peace of mind.

Excellent ESC. Really easy to setup and change settings. Nice not having to open the receiver box and disconnecting the harness to be able to connect it to the Progauge or Vlink instead just using the V-Port which is the on/off switch. Aluminium case is nice and solid compared to its competitors plastic case. Carbon fibre top fan brace is a nice touch to.

Honestly... Best bang for your money. This ESC works flawlessly, has ample programming possibilities, smooth, And in my honest opinion.. better built than the Tekin! The EZ link just makes it even that much better with the ease of programming! Last of all let me just say the most important thing.. I will always stand fully behind a company with excellent customer support and Viper definitely has that!

Excellent ESC full of features and very easy programing and super smooth, I've always used Tekin's Rx8 but since they've been slacking with production i had to try this Viper ESC and it's the best thing i could have done. Has automatic shut off, programmable ebec power, electronic switch......the list goes on. Very happy!!
