Product To Return : MCL2009 DRK160 ESC
Problem With Product : This is my 4th DRK ESC. Installed it on a 2S rubber tire dragster with a 5.5T motor. All connections were correct and perfectly soldered. I use battery to ESC connectors that can not be hooked up backwards. Installed, set up and calibrated with car on stand and no wheels/tires. After calibration and reboot, lightly tested throttle. All was okay. Power cycled to recheck calibration. Applied throttle followed by light braking, motor stopped, applied throttle then BANG (sounded like a .22 gunshot follow by light smoke. Found that a cap on the super cap board had popped. It popped so hard that it tore the clear shrink wrap to pieces. Have pictures to show installation, wiring and battery connection.

User Note

6/21/2021  Check in

6/23/2021 Repaired ESC with new MOSFET board, Control board and Capacitor and then tested. This damage was caused by an excessive amperage load. Please check your system for things like:

  • Bridged terminals on motor
  • Sensor gap and rotor float (this is very important!) Please check motor before using again.

Since the ESC is so new, we will cover the repairs under warranty this time. Please see testing video.
