Default ESC and ABS

Hi was wondering if the ABS feature on the Radio set (for eg. futuba 2PL) woould work with the ESC or does it only work on servos like on nitro cars? if it does work on the ESC will it hurt the ESC or shorten the lifespan of it?

It work with ESC's as well. The ABS feature is similar to normal braking (pumping fingers) so it shouldnt hurt the ESC.

The ABS is especially nice on Pan cars and one-way equipped cars. It lets you lay on the brakes hard but not lose too much control of the car

Damn, you just made me feel old. Pan cars are cars with a flat pan chassis, such as 1/12th scale on road cars or 1/10th scale oval cars (since 1/10th onroad is dead)

1/10th pan car on carpet is an awesome class. Our club runs a series with the RC10L3T and 19t motors, it's our biggest class for indoors.

Go to Socal and tell them Pro10 is dead. Granted the 10L2 I just got a couple months ago still has a pic of Cliff Lett in front of the Thundear Dome on it but there they get at least on to two full heats of L2's every Saturday. I picked one up to run with them but Lack of funds has kept me from equiping it.
