One of our fellow racers posted here the instructions for it in English.

I was wise enough to copy paste to a document on my PC .

With my (infinite) appreciation to that person here they are:

Hold the SET button down (while turning on the speedo) until the RED LED turns on and the GREEN LED flashes 3 times. (make sure you release it before it's done flashing.)

You are now in programing mode. (If you don't press anything, the GREEN LED will flash 3 times and enter back into normal driving mode.) Anyways, once in this programing mode, Press the SET button 1~4 times (Depending which program you want to change.) Make sure you press it so that the RED LED flashes to confirm each input. (example: to get to Program 3, Press the SET button, wait for the red flash, press it again, wait for the red flash, press it again, wait for the red flash. That's it.

Now wait for the GREEN LED to flash 3 times. And then wait again for the GREEN LED to flash 3 more times with the RED LED on. Once they stop and are out, press the SET button to the value the you need. Again, wait for the RED LED to come on and off for each value. When you are done, leave it alone and the speedo will flash the GREEN LED 3 times and return to driving mode (RED LED on).

Thats it!! Drive! You have to turn off the speedo if you want to program something else. In other words, you can only program one thing at a time. Hope this helps. I know the German instructions have a bad translation. But once done (correctly) it's very easy to do! Enjoy! It's an awesome ESC!!

I wonder if that racer was me?! I published my directions a long time ago and have seen it cut and paste everywhere haha. Anyways, gonna get back out my V12xc and run it in my 1/12th car. Only thing I don't like about GM esc's is that their circuit boards are too thin. Not like the thick ones that LRP uses. This just means that the wires coming out can easily flex or bend the board. Not that I've had one break. It's just something I don't like. But it's a good ESC. I'm just waiting on the new LRP Quantum Comp2 to come out stateside. That bad boy is waterproof!

Kilruf
They're probably yours...
I copied the instructions in a couple of posts at least.
I was so happy to find them for my V12xc that i had to keep them.
LOL

Believe me, I print them and I take them with me to the track, just in case.

Thanks
