yep, your right. just fixed it. also now its no longer running flat out once its switched on.

thanks for your help guys, very much appreciated. I knew it was highly unlikley to be the products fault, and a 99% chance it would be the nut trying to program it haha. this what happens when you dont run EP for a few years, unless there's a carby and some screws to play with I'm stuffed haha

Depending on motor of course, i'd say 5.3-5.6. Best way to find your FDR is to run the car for a couple of laps at a time and get a mate to test the temp each time. Heat is the key and adjust accordingly.

Default Thanks so much Angelo

Hey guys, I just wanted to take a moment to give a big shout out to Angelo Economou of team cobra racing/hobbywing for helping me out with a few situations in an extreamly fast manner. I had purchased a 60a/8.5t combo off ebay from Abeyerr and it turned out to be a counterfeit system. Angelo went way above and beyond with helping me write a report to paypal and did it in 1 day after contacting him. If this is the kinda service I'm going to get using Hobbywing products I will only be using them from now on as this is the kind of customer service I love to see, quick replies and a great personality go such a long way in my book. I also had some questions regarding software updates and programming that he quickly answered in the same day. Lets see some of the other major brands give that level of service!!! Angelo, you have been a saviour with all your help in my matters and I can't thank you enough for being such a great rep of hobbywing and a standup guy helping a brother out when he is down.

Default Broken Disc

I received my Hobbywing Xerun 120A ver2 esc/motor/programmer combo in the Mail yesterday. The cd rom (software) disc is cracked and un-usable.
I am guessing this is the Software to run the ESC or to innitiate the programmer box?
Can I download replacement software from somewhere or will I need to get a New Disk?

Were you running boost with the 21.5? Or is the class a 21.5 Non-Boost class?

The Hobbywing site

Thanks for the Quick Reply. I downloaded the Manual and Firmware program.
I unzipped the software.
I have one question before I get started.
Should I install the latest Firmware program into the Programmer Box seperately, or should I install the Motor and ESC into my car and hook up the programmer box to the ESC and THEN update the software?
The manual is unclear on this .......

Set the reverse power to 100%
No idea, but even in forward / Brake mode, this setting has a big effect on brakes.
