This is the Viper R/C VTX8 Sensored Brushless ESC. 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.
