well is your esc a reversing one? then NO you can not run it, reverseable ESC's have schodiodes built in them, well most of them

what do they do, they pretty much jsut get rid of radio interferance and stronger braking, their one of those FINE-LINE-TUNINGs =] i never noticed a difference, yea maybe cause i dont need a stronger braking, the wall is my permanat brake
