Hobbywing, power to perform, at an incredible low price…
At the 2011 U.S. Indoor Championships in Cleveland, the Hobbywing product set the top 2 fastest times in 17.5 open 1:12th scale with CRC drivers Frank Calandra and Brian Wynn turning the ONLY 47 lap runs in 17.5 open ESC. Earlier at the 2011 IIC in Las Vegas, CRC/Hobbywing drivers qualified in the top of the Open ESC 1:12th 13.5 and 10.5 World GT divisions. The XERUN ESC are stable, fast and reliable and since CRC is all about racing and winning, the XERUN line will be the first to be arriving to the warehouse with the Sport EZRUN line to follow shortly.


The 7002 installed in a CRC Gen-Xi. No RX pack or external booster needed! Result: Fastest lap and fastest 8 minute run in 17.5 open speedo in Cleveland.

The #7002 installed in a CRC Gen-X 10LE for open ESC 13.5. This car + controller combo was top 5 in both Vegas and Cleveland!

Also, all XERUN electronic speed controls (ESC) are ROAR legal with available “no timing” blinky software that can be changed from full timing mode to blinky, no timing. The Juststock ESC from Hobbywing is a budget priced ESC “locked” in the no timing mode and is great for spec racing without worry of cheating. The Xtreme Stock is another great price ESC that allows the 2s racer to change firmware from full blown timing to “Blinky” no timing ROAR legal modes.

Put the laptop away….
The XERUN ESC can be track-tuned with the small #7000 program box, just 3.5 x 2.1 x .75″ in size, fits in the palm of your hand. No clumsy laptop + wires cluttering up your pit area. All the features listed above can be altered with this small program box. This small box also acts as the interface between the laptop and the ESC, allowing the user to install “Blinky” software or change to “Supercharged” software. A laptop is needed to change platforms (firmware), but not adjust within the firmware, the small box needed. If you are heading to an Open ESC race, put the latest Supercharged software on the controller before your departure and leave the laptop home.
