Yes you can ! But it is the limit, so, be careful your drive train is not too long.

I too have ordered several x car esc's and have had the need to reprogram it. This esc does not work with other hk program cards nor do any turnigy cards work with it. I emailed hk several times and they said its only sold in motor n esc combos. Luckily for me I was wanting to convert my new twin hammers rock racer to brushless and so I ordered their 3000kv x car combo and another 45 amp x car esc for my 1/16 slash. I have a 120 amp hk x car esc in my hpi pro 2 rs4 on road car and it runs its novak velocity 5.5r sensored motor like a champ but it needs programing, so its good now that I have a programming card but the fact that they do not sell it by itself really blows goats. Big, hairy balled mountain goats. One thing that REALLY sucks is the fact that the x car esc's I received all come factory set for a lipo cut off of only 3.0 volts!!! Please ***p that up to 3.2 or provide an opportunity to your customers ro purchace the program card seperately. Thank you.
