Default GM v12...how do I set it up?

I need a spot of help here. I have a GM v12 on my hands here. I'd like to put it in my TA05 to run this summer. I don't know how to set it up though. I downloaded the manual for it a while back and couldn't get it programed using those instuctions. Can anyone help me out here?

Thanks -Dan

Basic setup: Push and hold the button until the light goes only green.

Full throttle then full brake in succession BEFORE the lights flash.

Once the green light flashes the ESC is set.

Advanced programming is a right pain in the jacksy and I have never bothered with it.

Do a search. I posted my directions on here years ago. It's been cut and pasted many times by people asking the same question.

I own the Worlds edition of that ESC. ITs a great one, but the instructions are hard to digest...

Keep this in mind:
-push the buttons multiple times to reach the desired parameter then push buttons to select its setting. The repeat for all parameters... To make changes to all parameters will take time. Pay attention as you can get lost..

If you know anyone with a GM-VIS Commander Charger, you can plug the ESC into the charger and use that to program it.
