Full-sensored Mode Supported

The first 1/8 scale competition ESC which can work the full-sensored mode at all
times (when pairing it with a HOBBYWING matching motor).

Power System

Turbo Timing Technology

Turbo timing technology is implemented by the XR8 SCT to unleash the maximum power
of a HOBBYWING matching motor.

Small & Light Structure Design

Small (30.1% smaller than XR8 Plus in size) and light (36.5g lighter than XR8
Plus in weight) structure design greatly simplifies the installation of
the power system (esp. for vehicles like buggy and touring car
with compact chassis).

Programming / Upgrading / 
Data reading wirelessly

With Hobbywing's "WiFi Express" module and iPhone or an Android phone (with the HOBBYWING
WiFi Link software installed), the user can remotely program parameters, upgrade firmware and
check relevant data of the ESC without leaving the control stand.

WiFi Module


The XR8 SCT provides an exceptionally smooth off-throttle coasting function, 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.


Capacitor Thermal Protection

Capacitor thermal protection implemented by the XR8 SCT will effectively prevent capacitors
from exploding and causing irreversible damage to the ESC due to overload.

Thermal Protection

High Voltage Built-in BEC

High voltage built-in BEC with an output current of up to 15 Amp and a
switchable output voltage of 6V-7.4V allows users to
use various high torque and high voltage servos.

High Reliability & Durability

Built with the most rugged and high-quality components and coupled with cutting-edge firmware,
the XR8 SCT 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.

High Reliability & Durability

Advanced and Secure Electronic Switch

Electronic switch with a lifespan of over 50000 on/off cycles, housed in a completely waterproof,
dust-proof and shock-resistant design.

Ultra-Reliable Cooling System

HOBBYWING's 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 vehicle’s frequent jumps.

Wide applicability

This XR8 SCT ESC is not only applicable to 1/8th buggies and short-course
trucks but also 1/10th short-course trucks, trucks and monster trucks.
