Default Is there a way to tell these apart?

I recently got one of these ESC's in a trade. The guy didn't know what exactly it was and actually called it a Tekin since the motor he got it with was a Tekin Redline. I corrected that quickly and still wanted the system BUT upon looking at it I understand now why he didn't know. The sticker was removed. So my question is: Is there a way to tell which exact esc I have?

I know it's a Hobbywing Xerun sensored but there are 3 that physically look identical aside from the sticker, which again, I DON'T HAVE!

I'm hoping someone might have some insight for me.

Thanks guys!!

Plug it into a LCD Programming Box and it'll tell you what's hooked up. Ditto for hooking it to your PC for updating, the HW software will ID it.

I only have the black digital one, which works great but doesn't give that sort of info. Nothing else huh?

This is what I have:

If the stickers are gone, the only way to tell will be with one of these.

Like your signature says...take it apart and count the fets. that will at least get you close. i have seen 1 row of fets advertised as 60 amp,and also 2 rows of fets advertised as 60 amps though. if the fet board isnt full,then its not the 120amp version.

Makes sense. I may have found a friend with the LCD programmer, he's going to send me a pic of it so I can make sure it's not the same one I have already.
