Have been running this system for a month now. Power and runtimes are fantastic in my Losi SCTE. I am geared 16t, w/ nano-tech 50-100c 5600mah lipo's. Don't let the price fool you. This system can compete with the other higher priced systems out currently. For a non-censored system it is extremely smooth. Great race setup. Viper has done it's homework with this system. ESC has all the programming options you could want. Using the Progauge is easy and multiple profiles are quickly programmed[More…]

I have been using this speed controller and motor combo for about two weeks now. The power is smooth and runs great. Highly recommend!

You are not gonna beat this setup for 150. No way. This is in my SCTE and it just rocks. Puts me on the podium with the guys running the gear that is twice the price! Was running the Castle MMP/3800 setup.Not anymore. Had to run a BEC with that setup because of the Savox 1258, not with the Copperhead! Running a 14 tooth pinion, loads of bottom end, and just as fast as the guys with the 4600 Pro 4's on the backstretch. I haven't even hooked up the ProGuage yet. I'm still running the stock profile[More…]

RC Madness - Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! Verified Owner Wednesday, July 17, 2013
About 15 packs through it . Very smooth system , well made , and easy to program. The motor runs hot on any pinion but a 13t. I run a 6.5 lb scte and cannot get the motor to run below 160. With a 15t I can be over 170 in 4 minutes. The 13t speed wise is too slow at my track to run near the front. Its a med size outdoor 1/8 track, more like a huge 10th scale track in its current layout. Here is the funny thing , even with a big 4 pole 550 , this system is really soft down low. No punch rea[More…]

well for the money it can't be beat, it's a great combo for the money, you get a 550 motor and ESC for under $150. 5 profiles so you can adjust it to suit your needs, I mean it's REALLY A GREAT DEAL ! I've had mine installed for 2 weeks and couldn't be happeir... 5 stars ! ! !

Awesome system for the money. I have run it in an scte and sc10 4x4 and both have plenty of power and can keep up with the $400 systems no problem. I like the fact it fits nicely under the drive belt across from the motor when running saddle packs on the sc10 4x4 unlike some of the bigger ESC's . It has been run on both indoor and outdoor tracks with excellent results. I haven't had any heat issues but I a have been running the recommended pinion for each truck. I have it set on race mode and h[More…]

TNT1224 - Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! Verified Owner Friday, May 03, 2013
Put this system in my Jammin Scrt10 and it runs great. 15T pinion and its only reading 132 degrees on the motor and 120 on the ESC with 2s 5000 maH lipos. Never raced before but I took it out to the track and hung with the club leaders. Little more time and higher gear and I think this thing will be unstoppable. Running over 1 month with at least 15 packs and still strong. Worth every penny.

This was my first unsensored setup i have ever owned, I have had a lrp sxx v2 and my current 2wd buggy esc is a Tekin rs. So when I thought of getting this for my 4x4 short course I was very nervous that I was going to be dissapointed, but honestly this thing is super smooth and has great power, I would recommend this setup to anyone running a 4x4 short course!

Francois TX - Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! Verified Owner Thursday, August 30, 2012
My car, Losi SCTE totaly stock. Outdoor track clay and very very large, location Texas so actual temp 100. Gearing 16x40 and too hot... 15x40 and fan on motor, temp around 160. ESC is great and run under 125, motor has some temp issue so I have to gear down and Top speed is not crazy ( a little bit more could be great) For the price and perf, it was almost 5 stars but for me brakes are not enough so It will be 4 stars. This combo works very well in my car and I m sure on a lighter car it wi[More…]

So easy to install and set up. The features are great. I had a Novak Havoc / Ballistic 4.5T combo in my SC104x4 and, although it was a powerful system with lots of parameters to tinker with, I had nothing but trouble with it. Blew one ESC and the motor blew a few months ago and getting much of a noticeable difference within many of the parameters seemed to be an exercise in futility. My first impression of the Viper system made my heart drop because it was so slow... but then it occurred tha[More…]

I put it in my 4x4 stampede and works awesome lots of tork and speed. Great combo for $120 would recommend to anyone.
Julian Taylor - Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! Verified Owner Saturday, December 21, 2013
Running in my converted 1/8 buggy to SCT. Was a tad concerned considering the weight, but have not had one single issue with this setup. Super smooth, powerful, runs very cool, and able to keep up with the lighter trucks I race against without a problem.
Dalton Baker - Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! Saturday, August 10, 2013
This combo is a monster. It's like a snake, literally, it's very smooth and quite respectably fast. It's a great value, and I can't reasonably find a better deal on the market
Martin Dasylva - Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! Verified Owner Thursday, August 08, 2013
Yeah Buddy !! after 10+ pack and a couples of hard bashing session its still rock !! hey for 119$ very good stuff
Michael Cullinan - Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! Verified Owner Friday, May 30, 2014
There's a reason why this combo has so many good reviews and it's because for the money it's a great buy. For being a sensorless motor, the power is very controllable. The power doesn't kick in immediately like you would expect from a sensorless motor which is great for the indoor clay track I run at. I'm running this combo in my OFNA TS4 PRO and despite this truck being on the heavier side it's got plenty of torque and top speed with a 13 tooth pinion. If your on a budget, in my opinion this is[More…]

Great system with plenty of punch and power to get around the track, the only problem i have is that on the 2nd day of running after install the ESC will not turn on and if it does manage to turn on it will immediatly shut off. It is a good thing they have a 180 day warranty so that is a plus.
