What Programming Card do I Purchase for the Hobbyking®* X-Car 120A Brushless Car ESC (sensored/sensorless). The ESC is for 1/10th scale truck. I purchased the 150A Programming Card, the red power light comes on but no categories are displayed.
Replaced stock ESC in an ECX Torment with this one, and using a Turnigy Trackstar 1/10 9T 4370KV Brushless. The motor ran pretty cool with the stock ESC, but now with with this new ESC, the motor is definitely overheating... I have all of the turbo and timing advance disabled... can this ESC be making the motor overheat? I didn't change gearing or anything, just the ESC.
What battery are you running? This esc should only "give" what the motor asks for, but given the load draw of your motor, it is capable of much more than it requires. I'd look at the battery and your connections, I ran this with a 3.5t motor and the only time it overheated was when I had one loose connection and it threw everything off.
Yes, that is possible, just by choosing 0 timing or choosing blinky profile
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".
