does anybody know which component of the speed controller blows when it shorts out? (terminals touching or plugging battery in the wrong way)?
Thanks.

anybody got some tips for replacing the wires? I have done it once before but it took AGES and didn't go too smoothly. Using TQ 13 gauge wire.

Where can I get a replacement upper case for the SXX? I'm still waiting on support to respond.

I really don't want to send it in for exchange as it has been a very good ESC. I had to return a TC spec SXX a while back and what I got back wasn't even close to the same power with the same settings. Strange I know, but it does have me worried.

I'm tempted to swap the cases and send the TC back.

Having the right tools makes everything a lot easier. I just finished soldering my new wires today, it took me 15 mins. You must have a desoldering tool makes life a lot easier.

Hey guys. I may sound silly but i got a sxx v2 a while ago and am now running 17.5 boosted class. When i put the esc into setup mode for mode 2 (boost) and 3 i cant get past 6 blue flashes so cant get max boost. It goes to 0 blue flashes if you press the set again after 6 flashes. Thanks pat

I tried emailing them before about this and they said they don't sell the cases separately.

Do you know what firmware is in it? Firmware v4.0 only has boost 0-6. I would use the original v1.5 software for 17.5 boosted because values 9-10 are definitely more power than boost 6 with firmware v4.0.
