You can't. You have to have it to change the settings.

Not saying the esc sucks, it sucks that I need to place another order and pay shipping again for a $10 item that IS REQUIRED to program the esc I just purchased.

A lot of people, including me got caught off guard by that. It is stupid that they don't make a huge note on some website's Cirtix product info pages, not small print, that the program card is required to change the settings. I complained where I ordered one from and although I had to pay for it, they sent it free of shipping.

I agree, the same thing happened to me I purchased it then realized I needed something else to change the settings. They really should include it in all ESC's. I got mine from TQ racing, they are really great to deal with.

OK, after reading about 75 pages of this, I'm convinced. We're trying to get a spec-stock class going at our club, and would love to use this set. But nobody has any. I've looked all over the internet, and nobody has any in stock.

Is this a dead-end, or is there a new model coming? It looks like exactly what we need, but if you can't get them, we'll have to look elsewhere.

Any help appreciated.

Check again soon with your local hobby store. I heard from a good source that the Cirtix will be back in stock very very soon here in the US.

I tried running my cirtix my 4wd Durago DEX410 buggy with a Venom 9.5t motor. I was really worried about heat issues. After running a race (6 minutes and 1 minute of warmup laps) The car came off of the track at 120* ESC and the motor was 110*

in one of the heats, my wires for the fan got tangled up in the driveshaft (the durango is really hard to fit electronics in) so, it thermaled in about 5 minutes.

On to the main, I was even more worried because we run 8 minute mains. Car came off at 145* and motor 130* I was a little easy on the throttle trying to keep temps down so that I could make the full main.

Now my question is:
Should I replace the capictor, if so, what should I go with? The one that is on there now is a small black (not sure on the ratings)

How do I get my motor to run the correct direction? The instructions say to reverse the TH if you have a Futaba. I have an M11X. Also it says to switch any motor wires but it is noted for sensorless.

All the connections are correct. I looked over it many times.

What do am I doing wrong? HELP!!!

Thanks~!
