Cheers
The software runs the same on all speedies, pick the one which you think looks best.

Excellent job hobbywing..

My first ever Race with Hobbywing xerun 120A V2.1 Blue edition w/ 518 Software running 11.5T stock motor.. Result Main A 2nd position.. 1st position was Tekin and 3rd position was SP GT2

Actually can keep up with Tekin, but wrong tire choice make me loose on sweeper and turns.. but on straight it was missile..
RED maybe fast but Asian BLUE is FASTER..

I had the timing punch turned down a bit to -3 and the rest on full with a GM 13.5 motor (stock timing).

I think 1 car (which was a Tekin) could stay with me on the straight and he is a friend that likes to have everything on the limit of safety. Its incredible that this is a 60A xerun with 518 software costing under 70.00 with an LCD programmer, that matches a Tekin costing 3 times as much!

The only gripe was the brakes, but from high speed they're actually not bad. Its when I go slowly from tight corner to tight corner it lacks a lot.

I qualified 2nd in A. Not tons of people at the club meeting but in the final I pushed a bit harder and drove like a complete idiot. In the gaps where I didnt crash, I was faster than the leader, but by then I was already a lap behind due to my stupid 'go for it' driving.

I was there and i can say that your car was well quick
and yes you was giving Andy a hard time.

LOL. Yeah Andy was the one doing the same laptime every lap and I was the one trying to find straights that didn't exist! - Anyway, I enjoyed that track. Even 13.5 is like mod now!

this may have been answered already, but will this supercharged software make NON stock motors like 5.5T or 6.5T faster too?

Well I tried on Mamba Max Pro is un-drivable but sure it's fast. If you have a really big track you can do it just don't be to agressive on timing advance.

From the RedRC reports, Marc R and Victor were both running the stock software on 4-4.5t motors at the latest ETS round. They were notably faster than Jilles down the back straight with his nosram, particularly at the end.

no idea what software or what settings they were using, it just said "stock"

What impresses me the most is the 'timing punch' (15) setting. That aggressive lump when the first timing kicks in can be almost eliminated with this and that's what I struggled to get rid of with the Mamba Max Pro. I had the Xerun to start off with at -2 with a 13.5 GM motor and went down to -4 to try it on lower grip and the car was a lot easier to drive on a technical indoor track. When the grip came up I ended at -3.

I'm sure that a 10.5 indoors can be much more manageable now with this feature, especially set down to -6 along with DDRS lower, because a 13.5 is usually enough indoors with these newer escs.
