High Reliability & DurabilityBuilt with the most rugged and high-quality components and coupled with cutting-edge firmware, the XR8 PLUS 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 & VersatilityWith strong torque and excellent output, the XR8 PLUS can definitely cater for all the power hungry requirements that professional drivers need. The highly adjustable parameters of the ESC will allow drivers to enjoy smooth throttle response when the throttle/brake linearity is utmost required.
High Voltage Built-in BECThe XR8 PLUS is the worlds first 1/8th ESC that integrates a HV built-in BEC with an output current of up to 15 Amp and a switchable output voltage of 6V-7.4V. The high voltage BEC is designed to handle todays high voltage servos on demand used by 1/8th scale vehicles.
Ultra-Reliable Cooling SystemHOBBYWINGs 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 adopts a shockproof mounting which effectively reduces the possibility of fan damage due to vehicles frequent jumps.
CoastingThe XR8 PLUS provides an exceptionally smooth off-throttle coasting function (patent pending), which simulates the feeling of inertia and momentum of a large-scale car driving experience. This can greatly improve the performance of builds utilizing large, high-powered motors as electromagnetic drag becomes a substantial factor in sudden deceleration when in the off-throttle position, adversely affecting driving performance and overall maneuvering.
Advanced and Secure Electronic SwitchThe XR8 PLUS features an electronic switch with a lifespan of over 50000 on/off cycles, housed in a completely waterproof, dust-proof and shock-resistant design.
Virtually Maintenance Free OperationBecause of the exceptional thought and design put into the XR8 PLUS, users can expect a virtually maintenance free operating experience, due to advanced error sensing and thermal protection, an exceptionally rugged housing, the ultimate in heat-dissipation technology and a special shockproof fan mounting able to withstand anything that a racer can throw at it.
High Performance Dynamic Timing AlgorithmThe worlds first 1/8th scale competition ESC which has adopted dynamic timing technology, which has had great successes in 1/10th scale touring car competitions for a long time now, will greatly expand the adjustable power output range of the ESC while still maintaining the overall system efficiency and smoothness.
