Can this be used on a 1/18th scale running a brushed 370 miotor?
 Zach 1 points
Yes it can I'm currently running a 370 motor in a slickrock with this esc and I'm loving it

How do I set this ESC for no delay between reverse and forward?
 Chri5k4t 47 points
Unfortunately you can't, it provides a brake and then reverse. From the Manual •* Programmable LiPo Battery Low Voltage protection. •* Programmable Thermal Protection.

You can do this very simply. You have to set drag brake, and then you will don't have delay between rewerse and forward

I love these ESC))) They perfectly manage my Mars rover. they have the function "reverse without pause." perfect for tanks and all-terrain vehicles.

Ok i took the plunge and bought six of these esc's to replace some others i had, all setup in various tamiya cars and buggies, i use lipo batteries so having the built in cut-off was a big selling point to me and at such a great price i would recommend them to anyone, easy to program. Ive been buying more and more from hobbyking, always great products and excellent prices. Keep them coming guys.

Install it in my old Tamiya Wild dagger truck with 2 x 540 brushed motors, and i works like a charmed, just out of the "box". The old school speed control went up in smoke. :-)

Best regards
