When applied to speed controllers, please bear in mind that a worn standard motor (a notional 27 turn) or a standard motor used in extreme conditions (for example on an off road car negotiating a rough ground or long grass course) will draw more current. It is therefore wise to purchase a higher capacity Electronic Speed Controller (for example buy an 18 Turn in place of a 20 Turn if running an off-roader) so that the electronics within are not running at their limit. This will reduce the likelihood of cut-out or overheating.
Please note the warning under the OFFICIAL TAMIYA heading below, if you have the Tamiya TEU101/4/5 or TBLE02 speed controller.
