New solder posts are a huge step up from the older model. Not only easier to solder, but more sturdy as well. I think they will see a dramatic reduction of problems previously seen due to bad soldering causing damage to the circuitry.)

Gotta love a "review" by someone who hasn't touched the product, like J.Anderson. Take his **** for what it's worth.

I have this new esc and it is high quality. New solder posts are awesome compared to the slit type of gen2. Upcoming Bluetooth adjustability is also excellent and class leading. Support a real racer's company by picking one of these up.)

Tekin RX8 GEN3 1/8 Competition Brushless ESC
As usual great quality product.This my second RX8 ESC.Just as good as the Gen2 but with little more muscle and few more updates.Like the new 250 HotWire update.A bit easier to set up your ESC.Can't wait for the HotWire 3.0 Bluetooth as it would be so much easier to set up your ESC's on the go with the phone in your pocket all the time instead of laptops or desktops.Only one question?Why is there a price drop so soon?Are they revising RX8 Gen3 already?Hmmm.....But I am very happy with the ESC and it dos a great job on my 1/8 scale TLR Buggy.Definitely five stars.)

It's unlikely that these are any more hardy and durable than the gen2 ,the switch is still the same old fragile rubish ,good for indoors .)
