Hello all, I have the Basher 4x4 SCT and wondering what the best motor would be to run with this 120A ESC. I'm looking for sensored and 4 pole. Right now my top choice is the Trackstar 5600kv motor but any suggestions are more than welcome, thanks.
Finally got my esc to work. Turns out my plug to my receive was in backwards, duh. I thought it would only go in one way, but it'll go in both ways. Thanks to Reece for helping me get the throttle calibrated.
So I've given up on programming before I install the ESC in my truck. I went ahead and installed and am trying to set the throttle calibration. The battery is plugged in to the ESC. ESC is plugged into my receiver. I turn on my controller and press the little red button on the on/off switch. I keep it held down and turn on the ESC. In about 5 seconds the red LED starts flashing and then nothing. Nothing happens. I try to pull the throttle (for forward) and nothing happens. The red LED keeps flashing until I press the button on the on/off switch again and then it goes out. ESC doesn't work at all at this point. What am I doing wrong?
Keep the little pressed the whole time you are calibrating. once finished let it go and reset the esc.

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".
