The MAX8 ESC provides the optimal upgrade solution for many popular 1/8th scale monster trucks like TRAXXAS E-REVO & E-MAXX, HPI SAVAGE, and THUNDER TIGER E-MAT. It’s also applicable to other trucks and buggies. The whole ESC except the cooling fan is basically maintenance free. Besides, the fan has also adopted the special anti-shock design, reduced damage brought by frequent jumps of the vehicle, greatly reduced maintenance work to the fan.

Reliable hardware combined with advanced software allows the ESC to not only provide extremely high output but also protect itself timely from damages caused by overload. It significantly reduces the possibility of getting damaged by heavy load and improves the reliability and durability.

The ESC has strong outbreak and stable output, so vehicle can do different moves without a problem, no matter aggressive start-up and wheelie, 720-degree flip (note 1), high speed running on straight tracks or flying over slopes. It always provide the power more than sufficient. Besides, driver can adjust relevant parameters for smooth and soft start-up.

The world’s 1st 1/8th scale ESC adopted the super built-in BEC with the max. output current of up to 15A and switchable output voltage (6V/7.4V). It can drive different servos, high voltage servos at ease and bring amazing control feel to drivers. The electronic switch with the lifespan of over 50000 times of switching on & off features a completely waterproof, dust-proof and shock-resistant design, completely solved problems like stuck reed and rust contact points caused by dust and moisture, switching off automatically caused by violent dash (like landing after flying over slopes) conventional mechanical switches often have.

Outstanding waterproof and dust-proof capability makes the MAX8 applicable to all weather conditions, no matter the track is covered with dust, gravel, snow or puddles.

Anyone who buys this for hobao mt I have found the a 17t pinion and 32t spur works perfect 16t the motor gets a little warm and a 18t it starts to get fairly warm to hot after a while if you have a cooler (castle creations) on it it should be fine but wouldn't recomend it 17t I have found is the sweet spot (2200kv motor) for tempreture and power it's an amazing bundle overall for the price plenty of power for a 1/8 Truck lots of fun just need another set of battery's as have so much fun and get decent run times verry happy

Do you have the 2000kv version of this bundle and would it be any good for the hobao mt with 14 tooth pinion or would the 2200kv be alright
Asked by Andrew Robinson on 15th November 2018

At time of writing, it doesn't look like Hobbywing offer this as a combo with 2000kv motor sorry.

The 2200kv should however be fine in that truck.

Asked by Ryan on 20th November 2018

We don't sell that car, so can't really advise fully... However this is a 1:8 scale system, you sound like you'd want a 1:5 scale system

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

If you put a loop in one of the connectors can you run off just 1 4s or 6s battery or does it have to be 2 batteries
Asked by Daniel Robinson on 12th February 2019

No you can run a single 4S or 6S if you wish.

Yes it includes 2 x deans connectors. Ideal for running 2 x 3S packs.

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

Can you supply this with EC5 connectors
Asked by Aiden on 6th December 2019

You would ideally need an adaptor to allow this to work , as you would not want to void the warranty.

Yes. Feel free to pop an order through and choose "instore collect" at checkout.

How much faster would this make an E Revo 2.0 with stock power system?
Asked by Stuart Fletcher on 24th February 2021

This will be similar to the Traxxas 6S system

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

What would be better x2 3s or x1 6s running in a converted Protech RS 1/6
Asked by Neal Rhodes on 14th March 2021

Either will work - we tend to prefer 2 x 3S for ease of use

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

Can I just plug and go with one 4S or do I need a specific connector to run a single lipo?
Asked by Clarence on 29th March 2021

These have twin XT90 connectors fitted, so you would just need an XT90 loop connector if you wanted to run a single pack - eg OL-3288 or AR390204

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

Hi there im looking at the hobbywing esc max 8 combo. It comes with the xt90 connectors, but i run traxxas connectors.
Asked by Steven on 11th April 2021

Sure, you can cut those off and solder on some Traxxas connectors eg 3070X

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

Could I put xt-60 plugs on this esc because that's what I have get on my lipo's and what batteries would you recommend for all round bashing
Asked by Wayne on 14th April 2021

You can if you wish. XT90 would be better suited for the current draw however.

We normally use say 2577XT90 or O-GC3S5000-50X9 packs with these (2 each)

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

Do these have connectors soldiered on and what are they
Asked by Charlie on 15th April 2021

Yes, these have twin XT90 connectors pre fitted

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

Is it only xt90 you have in-store?
Asked by Daniel Hunter on 26th April 2021

Yes, that's all these are available with from Hobbywing now.

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

Does this combo run its esc battery terminals in series.. ie two 3s lipos on deans
Asked by Chris on 19th May 2021

Yes is runs 2x XT90 connections.

Answered by: Anthony @ Wheelspin Models

Hi would this fit onto my e revo 2.0?
Asked by Dean on 14th October 2021

It would do yes, you would just need to stick the esc down to the chassis as it will not screw into place like the VXL-6s esc.

Answered by: Anthony @ Wheelspin Models

Does this come with a single connector or 2 in a loop , ready to take 2 battery’s ??
Asked by Kern Death on 23rd November 2021

This is set to take 2 lipos , but you also get a loop connection.

Answered by: Anthony @ Wheelspin Models

Will this fit straight into the traxxas maxx and can I still use the pin set up on the motor mount?
Asked by Neil Stow on 27th April 2022

No,  due to the motor mount setup on the Maxx you would only be able to use the Traxxas motor, without changing to an aftermarket motor mount.
