Running this in my RC8.2, RC8Te, and TeknoSCT410. Very nice quality, very solid feeling unit. I have tried em all, and this is the new king of 1/8 scale ESCs.

awesome brake settings. miles better system than the RX8 GEN2 I was using till it broke into 5 pcs. the VTX8 is all alum and can take a hard crash without worry. if you need something built tough and loads of setup features this is THE esc to have. ultra smooth motor and braking! I use it with a 2000kv Tekin T8. IT RUNS JUST FINE WITH MY SAVOX HIGH VOLTAGE SERVO.

Super smooth ESC. User settable voltage protection, motor temperature cutoff, ESC temperature cutoff and more. Pair it with the Progauge and you will have the smoothest, easiest to program 1:8 scale ESC on the market. Oh yeah... it us fast too.

best ESC for 1/8 and 1/10 4wd SC. Great adjustablilty, toughness, value, and so easy to tune, it has spoiled me for sure. Once you figure out how to tune the actual throttle feel of this esc it becomes evident how much better the design of it is. Compared to it's competitors it is designed to be used by literally any motor out there if you tune the throttle/brakes right. I have two of them and they are both running strong after a year of racing in the Louisiana heat and have propelled my cars wi[More…]

This is our second VTX8 speed control in service now. Running one in a JQ electric 1/8 scale buggy, and one in a Tekno SCT410. Very dependable unit and less money than it's nearest competitor on the market. Burned down two of those:-( before changing over to the VTX8. Programming with the EZ link is the way to go. We also have three other Viper combos in service in our short course trucks, and the EZ link/pro gauge is always in my pocket and ready to go. No need for lap top at the track to tune [More…]

The best 1/8th ESC in the world at this time. I have ran them all. Tekin RX8, Novak, Team Associated ect. Great job Viper RC solutions. I have bought several after testing the 1st one I bought.

I'm using this ESC right now on my losi 8ight e 2.0 combine with Tekin 1900KV motor and very happy with it. High quality build and good performance. Neat pre-soldered wire also very nice. Recommended!! Just keep an eye on the wire, because mine have small black spot like burning mark on it after few rounds on the track (Maybe because of my lipo).

Im really sad that a good product like this have a weak point like the wire of the on/off switch, also called vport. If you manage to cut a little this wire your esc will be garbage, it will not work. You can solder it again but it will not work. So protect that wire good cause if you broke it, forget to repair it and viper asks 120 dollars plus shiping for it so its better you get a new one here or get a tekin that have a great support.

I've run the Tekin RX8's for years in the Losi 1/8 truggy/buggy. (4S, 2050 in the buggy, 4S 2250 in the truggy) They are bullet proof...Now I put one in my Summit...I've run the think in the snow 4 times now, completely covered it with snow...and it runs fine... I'm wondering if the thing isn't waterproof too! However.... DO NOT RUN A HIGH VOLTAGE SERVO WITH THIS SYSTEM... It will cook the BEC in the ESC.

I tried going with the Viper VTX8 on a Tekin 2650Kv in my Tekno V4 converted SC8.2e. I would have to push start the truck for the sensor operation to work. Even after a push, the power just wasn't there on 4s. The performance compared to the stock 2000kv REEDY felt very similiar to my .2 on 2s MAYBE 3s. Sent the Viper in for warranty. Anxious to see how Viper will take care of my troubles and the duration it's going to take. Sucks being dead in the water after spending the $200 on a brand ne[More…]
