Hi all,

Quick note to say hi as am new to this forum. I have a M18MT which was great to build and is great to blast around. Now, I am by no means a racer or an expert so please go easy but........

Am I right that the stock ESC XMC300R, whilst having a brake, it is extremely sensitive and very small in terms of the range of movement on the transmitter stick to engage it? Having many other models with a variety of ESC's I appreciate that levels of braking vary as does the time it takes before reverse engages or the process of doing this. However, I find it impossible to successfully brake, she just blasts straight into reverse. I have set the ESC up as instructed and when held up I can see it kind of doing it but noted that in the manual it mentions that braking period is measure in micro seconds!

where I am going with all this is I want to get an ESC into it that will allow for a bit of braking and not just throw into reverse. I have used LRP and Mtroniks in 1/10 cars and some of those are small enough to physically fit, so it would just be a case of changing the battery plug and the connectors on the motor. What i haven't been able to find out is what turn is the 370 Supersize motor? I am used to having to watch out for turn limits on 540 sized cans and ESC's but no luck finding out the specs for 370.

In short, am I correct that the brake is very sensitive to almost non existence? Will an ESC I would put into a 1/10 work from a technical level - assuming I change relevant ends etc?

Many thanks and BTW, some great models on here. I am nowhere near the level of most on here but hey, you have to start somewhere! FYI am in the UK from an access to parts POV

99.9 percent of 1.10th escs will drop in without issue. 1 1/10th motor is 540 size which is a much bigger size than a 380. So even a 1.10th sport esc would be enough for a very modded 1/18th motor.
