Help! I am running this esc with a trackstar 10.5T motor and it is faster in reverse. I have tried everything I can think of without a programmer. I have calibrated it in reverse according to both the hobbyking and hobbywing directions to no avail. The wires are soldered proper a-a, b-b, c-c. Really at a loss here, even tried calibrating not in reverse on the transmitter. Every way I try this it is always way faster in reverse and is driving around like a slash in training mode going forward. I even attempted to adjust the timing to see if that did anything and it is still faster in reverse.
Mine worked Really good at first. But since yesterday, it stopped responding to throttle. And now it doesnt even connect to the programming card and the transmiter doesnt work neither, (yesterday I could steer when it didnt throttle.) sorry for my bad english.
If there is a way I can repair it please let me know, its a great ESC!!
I just ordered this ESC for my SC10 2wd. I am currently running a thunder power 17.5 motor. I have a Tekin Gen1 10.5 brushless motor that I would like to try. Will this ESC handle the 10.5 motor? Thanks for the info.
No problem. I run an 8.5 Trackstar and 10.5 Hobbywing motor. Both with lots of boost timing. A friend runs a 7.5 without issue.
I received today. 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.

Ottima esc. credo che ne prenderò altre. qualita' prezzo inconcepibile.
La consiglio a chiunque.
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".
