I’m looking to replace the EZRun 80A ESC of my BSD Racing Land Ripper V2 1/8 Brushless Buggy so that I can go for 6S LiPo power and jaw-dropping acceleration, but not totally keen on spending on a Mamba Monster by Castle Creations.

Just perfectly, my BSD BS809T comes stock with a 2350 Kv Brushless Motor, and that’s just nice for 6S. I read with interest on HobbyKing’s latest product, the Turnigy TrackStar 150A, but heard people calling it a rebranded SkyRC Toro 8. Have a look and tell me what you think!
