My brother has a Senton V3 mega that he was gifted for Christmas and recently put in a Onyx 1/10 Brushless ESC/Motor Combo (4000Kv) he got from hobbytown. It burned up the first day and he took it back to which he was told it was a defective one. So now he is deciding between
Hobbywing EZRun MAX10 SCT Sensorless Brushless ESC/3660SL Motor Combo (3200kV) [HWA38010200] | Cars & Trucks - HobbyTown
or
Spektrum RC Firma 85 Amp Sensorless Brushless Smart ESC & Motor Combo (4000Kv) [SPMXSEMC02] | Cars & Trucks - HobbyTown

Any recommendations?

Spektrum is basically rebranded HobbyWing

In this case, the HobbyWing MAX10 SCT is a 120 amp ESC vs the 85 of the Spektrum - so in this case I’d go with the HobbyWing combo

also - the 4000 kV motor is really meant for 2S only.

Thanks everyone, I’m glad I joined this forum! I’m new to the hobby so the help and information is invaluable!

is there a motor/esc combo that you would recommend over these two for near the same price range?
