PostSubject: Anybody try the HobbyKing EZ-run stuff?   Fri Oct 08, 2010 11:29 pm

I was looking at this setup for my drifter. I have heard mixed reviews about their stuff, but I am looking to get something cheap just to get me going.

Anyone have any experience with them?

Yeah, I know, but I just can't afford the high-end stuff right now. No argument from me about the quality of Tekin though, I am a Tekin fan since the early 90's. Cool

I haven't tried that stuff myself but from what i have heard it doesn't hold up to well. But in a drift car it might not be to bad.

Unless you drifting on Type T or PVC they fry pretty easy.
The motors do fine as long as you gear it right.
The ESC on the other hand dont like the constant Draw and them peak draw to break loose.

As they stated about VXL systems are cheap and fairly easy to get a hold of.

U can get a R1 Pro or RS for for cheap used.

Speed Passion will serve you great also. And they just drop the prices.
Now, some Speed Passions have a HobbyWing Counter part, those are also great ESC.
Price differences between Speed Passion and HobbyWing is about 30-40 bucks,
Actual differences is support and firmware. Speed Passion Actually warranties their stuff, Hobby Wing does not.
And the latest Speed Passion Batches have their own controller now that doesnt allow you to criss cross Firmware.
