Speed Passion Silver Arrow 1/8th Scale V2 Brushless Electronic Speed Control

Speed Passion Silver Arrow 1/8th Scale V2 Brushless Electronic Speed Control
Vince - Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! Wednesday, March 06, 2013
I have been pleasantly surprised with this ESC. Not only is the performance better than I expected, but it's also durable. My oldest one is from September 2011 and still going strong. I cannot make that same statement about another popular ESC that I USED to rely on. The only weak spot on the Speed Passion is the fan, but really that can be said for nearly all ESC's for 8th scale. The mounting for the sensor wire is on the side of the case, so you need to be extra careful how you position the ESC in your car. You want to make sure it's not in place where it can be crushed. You might also consider positioning it in way were you have easy access to the sensor port, in case the wire comes out. It happened to me a few times. The are no controls on the ESC itself, so you will need their programming box or a PC. As for most ESC's, you can get more in depth tuning on the PC, but the programming box is more than adequate for most cases. The tuning software is very good and they give you very good help for it. Performance wise, this thing rocks. Very smooth on the track with no hiccups. I have not had any BEC issues whatsoever. However, I don't run HV servos so I don't know how well they work with it. (HV servos are seriously overrated anyway, so I'm not losing any sleep over it). One important thing I need to point out, this is not a 2S lipo ESC. It will not work with your typical 2S Short Course setup. I tried it, as others have, and it doesn't work very well. Other than that, there is no reason at all to avoid this speed control.
