Thanks,Brett.
I went to the HW site & tried to download the USB software,but the "Purchase" button wasn't functional. I Googled the software & after another HW website link that ended in a 404 error in Chinese,I found a torrent site that had it. Not quite the way I wanted to download that or anything else,but at least I got it now. Thanks!

Here's the HW site w/ the non-functional "Purchase" button:

and here's the HW Chinese 404 site:

I was on the hobbywing web site and looked at the 120a 1s esc, there were two different ones one blue and one black the description was the same. The only difference was 30$. Is there a difference?

You can also find the usb link software at the CRC website.

www.teamcrc.com Look in the tech section at the bottom of the page.

They are the North America stocking distributor.

Also as for the cap board. I would run it even though you don't have to in fact if you run in a class that needs brakes you should purchase the optional four cap board and run it instead of the two cap. They greatly help the brakes and lower the ESC temp in high load applications.

What a good starting point for 17.5 open with these speedos? Do you have to gear them different than the tekin or mamba?
Thanks

I contacted them via online chat and asked that question. I was told there was no difference. The rep said maybe they had more of one than the other and that might be why the price was different, but the prices were the same ($30 different) even when they were out of stock. I do not understand this. I wonder if someday someone will notice and increase the price.

I know awhile back on rctech there was chat that the black one was the real one and the blue one was a chinese knockoff. They had pics of the differences.

I have two of the blue models. They are both genuine hobbywing. Feel free to spend an extra 30 bucks if your favorite color is black. lol. Not sure why one is cheaper, but sometimes its better to not ask why.

Brett- Oh okay,I see it now! I downloaded this one because the one I got from the torrent site was V1.63. I have the V1.64 now.
Many thanks again!!

In 17.5 open I tried 23 boost 22 turbo with a d3. A lot of rip for 10 laps then slow mainly because of car. Its always fast for 10 laps. I tried 50 boost no turbo. No rip. Motor timing 2mm.

It has been two weeks since I sent emails to two different addresses at CRC asking about warranty and service on these speed controls. I have received no response. So, the answer is, effectively, there is no warranty. There is no service. Buy at your own risk.

And if you are going to do that, you might as well buy from HobbyPartz.com and not have to pay shipping (free for orders over $50).

Hi, I recently purchased a XERUN-120A-1S-SD. I have the zero timing firmware installed and the red LED does not blink, therefore I'm not legal to race. It is advertised to have a legal blinky mode. It also will not work as advertised on 1S with lipo cut out enabled. Anyone have any ideas?

You need to be running software 508 it is the blinky software. If you are running 1s you need to turn off the low voltage when you change the software. I have 2 of these one blinky the other running boosted stock. I just ordered 2 more. Any body want to biy some lrp lol.
