Tekin RX8 GEN2 1/8 Competition Brushless ESC
By far one of the most programmable ESC's on the market. The Hotwire 2.0 and a cheap adapter from Amazon turned my smart phone into one of the most powerful tools in my pit!

Tekin RX8 GEN2 1/8 Competition Brushless ESC
I owned one of these ESCs and experienced great results with it. The only problem I had was because of the tall posts for connecting battery & motor wires it was a tight fit in my sc10 4x4. Ultimately I broke one of the posts resulting in ESC failure. It would have been nice if Tekin had a trade in program like Novak has. Because of the trade in program I'm going to buy a Novak Pulse V2 this time. I still give Tekin 5 stars because this was an excellent product that lasted months of trouble free racing. My bad for stuffing it into too tight of a space.

I have one of these with the PRO4 HD set up in my SCT, its worked great. Easy to set-up and so far no issues at all. Looking at a new set-up for my 1/8 buggy and I am most likely going to be the owner of two of these esc set-ups in my car and truck.

I couldn't be happier with this product. It runs great, lots of tuning options and the data logging feature allows you to really dial in your setup.

Tekin RX8 GEN2 1/8 Competition Brushless ESC
I've been running this in a few different vehicles. electric 8th buggy, electric 8th truggy, and 4x4 short course and have been working flawless. These are bulletproof, I have had zero issues. They all run cool and have plenty of power while remaining smooth and consistent.

Tekin RX8 GEN2 1/8 Competition Brushless ESC
Tekin took the best 8th scale ESC on the market and made it better. Improved BEC with HV servo capability means you can run HV servo's without doing fancy wiring tricks or receiver packs. Improved throttle smoothness and improved brake feel and tuning. Lots of programming options on board but purchase with the HotWire and really unlock the potential of the ESC with Data Logging and firmware updates as well as almost infinite tuning options. Great for Pro-4 applications as well. Also now you can tune your ESC using HotWire and your android device making track side adjustments a breeze.

Tekin RX8 GEN2 1/8 Competition Brushless ESC
I bought a rx8 from my local hobby shop. We have a huge quad at are local track. I tried to clear it and cleared it. And my ebuggy stopped afterwords. One of the post coming of the fet board broke loose. Cheap case it can't take a hard landing. And it will burn up at some point.
