This is the DuraTrax Element 1/10 Scale Brushless Combo. The Element 3900kV Brushless System was developed specifically for use with lightweight 1/10 scale 2WD off-road vehicles, including buggies, trucks and short course trucks. The programmable ESC and powerful 4-pole motor are made by Castle Creations and are easily mounted; after installation a simple throttle setup is all that is required to get going! The 4-pole, 3900kV sensorless brushless motor delivers more torque with greater efficiency, to meet the demands of today's high performance off-road vehicles.

ESC Programmable Features*:
  • Brake/Reverse Type: sets whether reverse is enabled or not, and how it is accessed.
  • Brake Amount: sets what percentage of available braking power is applied with full brake.
  • Reverse Amount: sets how much power will be applied in reverse, if reverse is enabled.
  • Punch/Traction Control: designed to smooth high power starts and limit punch when you don't want 100% battery power in every situation. The lower the setting the less throttle change limiting there is; for softer acceleration or for running on low-grip surfaces, raise it to a higher setting.
  • Drag Brake: sets the amount of brake applied automatically at neutral throttle to simulate the slight braking effect of a neutral brushed motor while coasting.
  • Dead Band: lets you adjust the throttle sensitivity width at neutral. Smaller values make the controller enter forward or brake/reverse with a smaller movement of the throttle trigger for finer control.
  • Cut-Off Voltage: sets the voltage at which the ESC removes power from the motor in order to maintain the battery at a safe minimum voltage (LiPo), or to keep the radio system working reliably (NiCd/NiMH).
  • Motor Timing: allows for lowering or raising the timing advance to the motor to reduce or increase amp draw, run time, motor/battery temperature and top speed and punch.
*NOTE: ESC can be programmed manually, with the Castle Field Programming Card or through the Castle Link software interface.

For the money, best Short Course set-up you can buy for a stock-spec class racer. Has never overheated! Threads in the motor can are the only questionable feature.

I bought this from my local RC shop as I needed something for the weekend in my 4wd 1/10 buggy. I would have preferred not having to also buy the programming card to make sure it was set correctly. Otherwise it's a good, low-profile system that should fit most cramped spaces with ease.
