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

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)
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)
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!

Hobbywing EZRun MAX6 V3 1/6 Waterproof Brushless ESC (160A, 3-8S)
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!

Hobbywing EZRun MAX6 V3 1/6 Waterproof Brushless ESC (160A, 3-8S)
Got two runs out of this esc and it went up in smoke. I wasn't even bashing it or pushing the esc. Just driving down the street in front of me while I was walking and it started smoking. Unbelievable!

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.

Hobbywing EZRun MAX6 V3 1/6 Waterproof Brushless ESC (160A, 3-8S)
Stays between 120-145 Fahrenheit even on 18/46 gearing in grass on my e revo 2.0 running 6s (stock gearing is 15/54)
Punch level 4 is even more power than the stock esc so I couldn’t imagine punch level 5, my revo did a backflip at full throttle on grass on punch 4 and you can make it bunnyhop… completely leaving the ground.. doing about 30-40 in grass.
Feels super high quality but I didn’t use the included tape, instead I used thick double sided foam tape like what’s used on the stock e revo 2.0 esc to slightly cushion the esc from shock

Hobbywing EZRun MAX6 V3 1/6 Waterproof Brushless ESC (160A, 3-8S)
Was a good fit for my E-Revo 2.0. Plenty enough amperage to handle an upgraded single mod servo set up. After installing, simple plug and play. Didn't get into calibrating it or anything.

Absolutely amazing! Putting this into my Infraction V2 was the best decision I made. It lasts so much longer than the stock Spektrum ESC,and I can run 8s! You won't regret getting one.

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.
