Hobbywing XeRun XR8 Pro G2 ESC | CompetitionX

Hobbywing has introduced the XeRun XR8 Pro G2, a fully-sensored 1/8 scale ESC that boasts some hot features for the offroad market. Some of these include advanced boots and timing tech up to 48°, increasing the performance by 50% (when using the HW G3 series motors).Then there’s the reverse polarity protection, wireless programming/updating and data logging, cap thermal protection as well as a powerful internal BEC!

What We Like:
All this new tech coming out in ESC’s is really raising the bar when it comes to ease-of-use and overall performance. Besides all of the included software goodies (mentioned above), one thing I LOVE about Hobbywing ESCs is their on/off switch! Not only does it include a dustproof/waterproof housing, it’s electronic so there’s WAY less chance of failure (like the old-school toggle switches). Also a fan of the wireless (Bluetooth) data logging in real time. I don’t use it much but when I do, it is fun to check out.

What We’re Not Sure About:
Really, nothing. I’ve been a big fan of HW ESCs for quite some time (after running the AXE in my crawler) and love all the features included with it. Would like to experiment a bit more with something like this in my 1/8 scale ride (or DB8 Rock Racer)!
