could i use it in a turnigy td10 (sakura zero s) without it overheating? and what motor should I use with which pinion?
 Vgeorge 29 points
Hi, You can put it on a TD10. About motor, it depends how you want to use the car. Just for fun, competition or drift.

The on/off switch is cheap and weak. Is there a better switch I can replace it with.
 Vgeorge 29 points
I have 6 of this esc, and i don*t have any problems with the on/off button. You can buy another one froom ebay. Just search for hobbywing switch. Is the same.

with the usb link it is compatible with the usb setting software of hobbyking (v4.3) and it can handle V3 firmwares (121 for stock or 119for mod) also available is a 0 timing if you local race rules forbid timing. It has turbo and boost timing option on the mod 119 I installed.
 Vgeorge 29 points
It is not compatible with the software from V3 esc. You can use only the firmware that are compatible with V2 or V2.1 esc

does this esc have blinky mode for stock racing
 Vgeorge 29 points
If you want to use it in blinky mode, you hace to buy a programm box, to put the blinky firmware from Hobbywing.

This is copy of XERUN120A ver2.1.
Beware:The HobbyKing HKSS programming card for HK 150A ESC is not suitable for this ESC.

I love this ESC. it's small and light and handles 3s easily. To program you will need an older Turnigy programming card, it works perfect and gives you 10 different settings to adjust (check out my video on programming). Overall i would buy another X-car 120 amp ESC.

This is a very nice overall ESC for the 1/10 class, identical with the Hobbywing XERUN V2.1 version. Tested with almost all the suitable Hobbywing's firware and is working fine, the only thing i have to mention is that you have not an option to change rotation on a sensored motor with any of the firmware and the HKSS programming card is NOT working regardless of Hobbyking's statement on suitable accessories. So, although it is a very good ESC for the price , i will give only 4 stars as it came without user manual as well. I have already uploaded Hobbywing's manual,for anyone interested,you can find it on the "files" tab as: "HOBBYWING 60/120A v2.1 manual".
