I'm new to the forum and have been looking into an ESC. Sorry if this is a stupid question in advance.
Can I just use an ESC from an R/C car, connected to the battery, and gas pedal to control the throttle in my son's jeep? Or are there more steps involved? I don't want full RC, just throttle control.
Can I wire it up like this and attach the red, black and yellow wires to the gas pedal?

I never received an answer but I don't think my suggestion is possible. Probably has to do with voltage and the pedal. I ended up buying the plug and play kit from East Coast Power up.

It can be done, but not a simple swap.

A few things need to be considered.
1. Voltage. Your RC gear probably runs at 7.2V not 12V.
2. The ESC will probably be for a BRUSHLESS motor. Your Jeep will have a BRUSHED motor.
3. The ESC uses what is called RC PPM for throttle input. Foot throttles supply a linear voltage.

You'd be better off buying a PWM driver, a foot throttle and using that instead.
