The Hobbywing Xerun XR8 Plus Brushless ESC/Motor Combo includes the awesome 4268SD G2 - 2600kV sensored motor to deliver unmatched power, performance and reliability for demanding 1/8 scale racing applications. Built with high quality components and loaded with cutting edge firmware, the XR8 Plus is responsive enough to protect itself from damage due to abuse, overuse, or even human error. With it's incredible power output and adjustable parameters, the XR8 Plus will deliver the smooth throttle response and linear throttle/brake qualities that discriminating drivers demand. Combine this incredible ESC with the Hobbywing 4268SD G2 Sensored Brushless Motor and you have an incredible combo package for 1/8 On Road applications.


  • ESC:
    • Built In High Voltage BEC: The XR8 Plus is the first 1/8 ESC that includes an integrated HV BEC with 15 Amp output current, and adjustable output voltage from 6 to 7.2V. This BEC is designed to handle power hungry servos with ease.
    • Reliable Cooling System: Patented cooling technology utilizes proprietary heat conductive copper bars to rapidly and effectively transfer all internal heat from the MOSFET board to the integrated CNC machined billet aluminum heatsink housing. The cooling fan utilizes a shock proof mounting system that reduces the possibility of fan damage due to the repeated shock of landing jumps in an 1/8 scale off road environment.
    • Coasting: The XR8 Plus provides exceptionally smooth off throttle coasting function (patent pending), which simulates the feeling of inertia and momentum of a large scale car driving experience. This greatly improves the performance of builds that utilize large high powered motors, as electromagnetic drag becomes a substantial factor in sudden deceleration when in the off throttle position, adversely affecting race performance and handling.
    • Advanced and Secure Electronic Switch: The XR8 Plus features an electronic switch that has been rated with a lifespan of over 50,000 on/off cycles. The switch is completely waterproof, dust proof and shock resistant.
    • Virtually Maintenance Free: Thanks to the well thought out design, the XR8 Plus is virtually maintenance free. Advanced error sensing and thermal protection, an exceptionally rugged housing, the ultimate in heat dissipation technology and shock proof fan mounting make this ESC able to withstand anything a racer can throw at it.
    • High Performance Dynamic Timing Algorithm: The XR8 is the worlds first competition level 1/8 scale ESC that has dynamic timing technology. This expands the adjustable power output range of the ESC while still maintaining system efficiency and smoothness.
    • Included Accessories: Includes 10awg wire, and mounting hardware. Does not include programming box.
  • Motor:
    • Full-Sensored Mode:The first motor (in the world) with a built-in chip which helps the ESC identify it's a Hobbywing motor (when pairing with XERUN XR8/XR8 Plus) and form a power system which can work in the "Full-Sensored" mode to provide users with improved performance and smoother control. Note: this motor is also applicable to other ESCs, but it cannot work in the Sensored mode at all times.
    • Turbo Timing Technology: When pairing this motor with HW XERUN XR8 series of ESCs, the Turbo Timing, which is widely adopted in 1/10th scale on-road racing, can be enabled and unleash the utmost power of the motor.
    • Bi-Directional Adjustable Timing: The bi-directional adjustable mechanical timing, can meet the different power demands of various applications. Bi-Direction refers to CW and CCW operation of the motor.
    • Advanced Hall Sensing System: The first "error-free" Hall sensing system adopted by this motor guarantees users the steady operation in the "Full-Sensored" mode. A separate high-speed high precision encoder always output the clean signals (indicate the rotor) and not be affected by other signal interference.
    • Low Cogging Torque: The first motor adopted the innovative 4-pole 8-magnet "staggered pole" rotor has extremely low cogging effect and low torque pulsation (it's reduced by 85% when comparing with traditional 1/8th scale motors).

Hobbywing Xerun XR8 Plus Brushless ESC/G2 Motor Combo (2600kV)
Great esc combo. My only issue is you have to read very carefully. The 2600 kv g2 motor is not what is pictured. The motor was designed for on road use and the front and back of the motor is open for cooling purposes. According to hobbywing you can still use on a clay track as long as proper motor maintenance and cleaning are done after running it.

Hobbywing Xerun XR8 Plus Brushless ESC/G2 Motor Combo (2600kV)
Haven't used it yet. When I use it I will let you know. How it performs. Until then don't ask for my review. The car that I ordered was shall say was very late on delivery. Our system in hobao GTB. Ran great for about 12 runs. Now at least 20mph slower not sure it is the speed control or motor. Not happy !!!!! 10/7/19 Don't waste your money ran 12 batteries 3s and 4s. Failed now dancing around with Hobbywing not worth the trouble probably out 300.00. 10/21/19 Still not out of 180 day warranty. Had to send system back for testing after testing motor and speed control. Motor timing off and will not run if A and C swapped. 25.00 to ship to Hobbywing.They where willing to send new speed control until I said it was purchased as a combination. Now has to have a factory test.And could cost me to have it repaired!! Do not buy this product!!! Hey Hobbytown and Hobbywing do care about bad reviews? Very disappointed in both of you!!!!!! Still have the option to have PayPal get involved!!! 10/22/19 Telling me motor is good even though it won't run when A and C phase swapped on motor analyzer. 1 phase in speed control shorted. Do not buy this product not worth the money or the trouble trying to get your money back!!!!!!! 10/23/19 Saveent motors ng from you way to back the things you sell!!! 10/28/19 Hobbywing sent the same motor back with leads on. New esc kept my battery plug and motor leads with bullet connectors. Out shipping both directions to them and back to me.I say again! Don't buy it!!!! Hey Hobbytown paying attention!!!!!! 5/3/2020 Was able to run system still the same issues. DO NOT buy this product wast of money and time. Tried 2 differnt motors on speed control on speed control. and motor on 2 different speed controls. JUNK!!!!!!!
