Default EZrun esc with brushed motor

I was hoping to run this esc in my crawler, but heard that you can not run the ESC with a brushed setup. I e-mailed Hobbywing directly and asked them, and here is the response I got from them:
"Others,The Ezrun ESC can run a brushed motor.

Best Regards,

Tracy"

So it looks like I am going ot try this setup this week as I already have one EXrun setup for my slash. I will try to take that off the slash and throw it in my crawler. My question is this:

What do I do with the extra wire coming off the ESC? The brushed motor has 2 wires, while the EZrun has 3. If I just get rid of one, which one do I dump?

Thanks
DIma

Ive only seen one site that said it runs brushed and brushless,but every other site it's advertised as brushless only. Id be careful when running a brushed motor if it can at all. Also in their reply they should have elaborated more on the brushed part. Let me know how it goes.

have you tried programming the eZRun using program card function #10? there are options to set for brushless (10-1), brushed with brake (10-2) and brushed forward only (10-3).

i havent really tried, but if they say it works and the programmable card states it, then it should be possible.

Hobbywing came out with a 32T (SL-3650M 1200Kv) brushless motor made for rock crawler. U might want to try that. The funny part is i was told it works best on the 35A ESC and not the 60A ESC.

I'm getting it to try on my Ax10

Hi!

EZRUN series ESC cannot drive brushed motor, Ms,. Tracy gave you the wrong information. Sorry for that! She is just a sales, not a engineer.

Only Xerun 120A and Xerun 60A (Version 1.2) can drive brushed motor, even in our newest version Xerun 120A (Version 2.0), we cancel this function, because it seems brushed system is not popular now.

Hi, Just want to ask, just got the combo for Xerun V2.0 Esc and noticed that the motor i got ( 8.5T/S) does not have 2 holes as i can see in the pictures, just wondering what version do i have and what are the difference?is this the stock from V1.2? no holes on the magnet (motor body). Please advise thanks,

newbie.
