I can only find the programming card as part of a package. Is it still sold separately? I am interested in a ESC that supports limiting the throttle. As far as I can tell this one seems to support that but I will need a compatible programming card with that option as well.

You need to look into a computer radio that can be programmed to limit or scale down the throttle throw. A lot of these newer radios systems will allow you to keep the same receiver in the car and just bind the existing receiver to the new radio.
