They blow down onto the ESC.

Did you try a different sensor wire? It definitely sounds like a sensor problem.

Please give our office a call...if the ESC is under warranty we will replace the ESC for you. It sounds like sensor problem on the sensor socket on the ESC if you have tried 2 different motor and 2 different sensor cables and no deal.

What kind of motor ? if this is one of the earliest versions on the ESC, then they did not run all types of motors...

I just placed my order this morning. I hope Albert gets them out to me. I'm ready to try them. I tried to buy them the other month and KingGolden sent me an email saying they couldn't sell them in the states.

The last month version are all BLACK in color, they are the pre-production unit that can only be used around the world EXCEPT USA. I need them to be color coded so the tech can spot the sensor from the outside of the can what sensor that they are using. We don't do hand out motor racing much in USA but this actually helped to spot if anyone alter the sensor if they are suppose to use the stock black unit. This is very important for other country that do hand out racing beside USA.

ALL of the GT series speed controls use the same software whether it's a 2.0 or a 2.1, so you will have no problems.
