They aren't affordable and they are absolutely ridiculous in size/weight. Even their small one is 4 times the size of a comparable castle heli 12s esc.

They sure have a lot of features though.

Get an HV 120 and a pistix adapter.

I would recommend looking at the specs on the new 2028 800kv motor. Specifically the voltage limitation. I'll let you draw your own conclusions. ;)

Sounds promising. Hopefully it will survive. I had 2 xl2 just stop working, no smoke or anything just no power.

An XL3 with smaller footprint... or a XL2 Sidewinder, lol for 1/8 lunatics to use 8s power on 1/8 buggys.

There is a demand for 8s power on 1/8 scale buggys/truggy's... so it will come eventually.
Hope that's sooner then later and please smaller cm's. All the space is precious!

Reading this thread reminds me of a thread from 2009/2010 (http://www.rc-monster.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-24497.html) where a 12s capable car esc was already discussed about (with Pdelcast) ... too bad it wasn't released then, but now with heavier 4wd cars around, especialy the losi 5iveT it really makes sense to step up from 8s. I know that i'm pushing my 8s XL2/2028 setup beyond its limit when powering my Losi 5iveT as i'm able to average up to 100A during a run. This really is hard on every electric component. The xl2 ESC can reach temperatures up to 100C (212F) within 5 minutes at this power levels and aside from the batterys beeing pushed hard the ESC becomes the bottleneck (2nd would be the motor).

Having said this i'm really looking forward to a possible 2nd attempt to release a 12s car esc. Seeing the new 800kv 2028 motor beeing able to rev up to 45000rpm seems to indicate this time it could be for real ;-) Using a 10 to 12s setup in a Losi 5iveT should unleash its true potential.

I sure am also eager to see how much more the new 2028 is efficient compared to the old one. Maybe an even bigger motor is the only proper answer to cars as heavy as a Losi 5iveT.

On a sidenote ... even in a lighter (11kg/24.2lbs) onroad 4wd car (FG Porsche 4wd) it's not too hard to reach similar temperatures within the XL2 ESC (car geared for 60mph/95kmh).

I think the time is right for "the" next step.
