    I am buying an ESC for my 1/10 4x4 but I don't know which one to go with. I want to buy the Hobbywing SC8, but I also found the Hobbyking X-car 60a (2s-4s) brushless ESC. I only want a cheap ESC that is easily programmable and can take 4s. Would it be worth spending the extra money on the SC8? I...
