This is the Hobbywing EZRun MAX6 V3 1/6 Scale Waterproof Brushless ESC. Compatible with 3-8S LiPo power, the MAX6 is a great choice for 1/6 and 1/7 scale vehicles like the Traxxas XO-1, but is also suitable for various 1/8 scale heavy vehicles like the E-REVO and CEN GST-E Monster Trucks. It's the ideal option for high-end aggressively powered builds. 

Features: 

  • High Reliability & Durability: Built with the most rugged and high-quality components and coupled with cutting-edge firmware, the EZRun MAX6 is able to deliver unmatched power and performance for even the most hardcore of racing applications, but is also responsive enough to protect itself from damage due to overloading due to physical abuse, overuse or even human error.
  • Great Flexibility & Versatility: With incredible acceleration capabilities and a rock-solid, stable output, the MAX6 can handle instant full-torque start-ups for wheelies, high-speed racing on straightaways and powering through the bumpiest terrain. The user will have the choice of adjusting the ESC parameters as per his preference and ability.
  • Applicable for All Weather Conditions: The waterproof and dust-proof design allows the MAX6 to be used in all weather conditions without any issue of damage caused to the ESC from water or dust.
  • High Voltage Built-in BEC: The MAX6 has adopted the world's first HV built-in BEC with an output current of up to 25Amps and a switchable output voltage of 6-7.4V. The high voltage BEC is designed to handle today's high voltage servos on demand used by large scale vehicles.
  • Advanced & Secure Electronic Switch: The MAX6 features an electronic switch with a lifespan of over 50,000 on/off cycles, housed in a completely waterproof, dust-proof and shock-resistant design.
  • Regular Firmware Updates Free of Charge: You can upgrade the MAX6 with the Hobbywing USB LINK software, a multifunction LCD program box and a laptop. Hobbywing updates it's ESC firmware regularly giving you upgraded features more often when available.
  • Maintenance Free: The ESC, minus the cooling fan, is basically maintenance free. The cooling fan is designed to be shockproof, which in turn will reduce damage brought on by frequent vehicle big jumps and landings on hard surfaces.
  • Built-in Anti-Spark System: The MAX6 is built wit an internal anti-spark circuitry that protects not only battery connectors from damage but helps to prevent physical injury due to burnt fingers from the inevitable issue of sparking when hooking up the ESC to higher voltage battery packs (5S/6S/7S/8S).

Hobbywing EZRun MAX6 V3 1/6 Waterproof Brushless ESC (160A, 3-8S)
I love hobbywing ESCs because they're so very smooth on both throttle and braking. This replaced a Monster X in my XO-1 and it is buttery smooth off the line in comparison. I like the push button on switch because it makes it impossible to leave the switch in the on position when unplugging and reinstalling batteries. Super programmable, if you're looking for a larger scale ESC this is excellent

I have a 14lb Savage XL with alot of aluminum and it has cooked (2) mamba monster X's. This ecs has more power and runs waaaaay cooler. If you are on the fence about HobbyWing, Buy this.

Incredibly smooth ESC with a powerful BEC for my HV servo and Hot Racing motor fan. Installed in the X-Maxx sitting in the stock ESC location and have 6s bashed every weekend with zero issues or irritations.

Hobbywing EZRun MAX6 V3 1/6 Waterproof Brushless ESC (160A, 3-8S)
Bought this for my xmaxx 8s and man did it wake the truck up. Running on stock 1200kv motor with mod 1.5 B&M 15/30 gears, turns this truck into an even more powerful truck! Highly recommend this ESC!

This is probably THE best esc you can buy for the Xmaxx, it's so smooth and way more power! It also fits perfectly where the stock esc was, so it was super easy to install. Getting a program card also helps because you can adjust settings on the fly!

Great upgrade for xmaxx 8s! Very reliable and durable..stays cooler than stock esc with no issues. Be prepared for a stock tire upgrade also as the power difference will shred the stock xmaxx tires to pieces!

Hobbywing EZRun MAX6 V3 1/6 Waterproof Brushless ESC (160A, 3-8S)
The fan broke almost right out of the box. Maybe 20 minutes through a pack on a test run. Great ESC so far, just needs a new fan day 1.

Hobbywing EZRun MAX6 V3 1/6 Waterproof Brushless ESC (160A, 3-8S)
Hobbywing escs are among the best out there in terms of performance and quality. I currently have 4, and have had others. I recommend buying the program module as well to make adjustments simple as can be. The max6 delivers more power than comparably rated escs. The only negative I see with the Hobbywing max 6 and other models is that the fans are weak and break frequently when bashing, and its difficult to apply aftermarket fans. Overall a great purchase.

Hobbywing EZRun MAX6 V3 1/6 Waterproof Brushless ESC (160A, 3-8S)
I am really impressed with the Max 6.Put it in my Traxxsas Rustler vxl with a TP 4070cm motor and 19800uF killmode cap pack.I have the 8s lipo batteries but this thing is so insanely powerful and smooth on 6s I can't imagine using the 8s but I'll eventually try it out to see.Really love it I was contemplating buying the Castle Mamba Monster x 8s but opted for the Hobbywing's reliability and I definitely haven't been disappointed.

Note.This thing is so powerful my stock Rustler differential planetary gear set got destroyed with this and the TP motor got a new planetary gear set and destroyed it again.Going to have to get a diff locker because the stock Rustler gears can't handle this thing.

Really woke up the xmaxx. Good power delivery to the stock motor and made the truck plenty fast on 8s. Fit right in stock esc location as well.
