So much for this esc, it puffed on me the moment I turned the power on. I am just staying with their radios from now on, I can't afford problems like this. Hooked the Tekin RSX back up and no issues, lesson learned.

Sounds like user error? It's rated to like 1000 amps... How are your soldering skills?

This is one tight as hell esc to solder, and does not take solder easily at all. I am so happy with my RSX, I should have never bothered with this.

Doesn't take solder? You have right tip supplies?

I do not use the included wire. The Sanwa wire, I just don't like and don't use. It doesn't take solder well. I also prefer lower temperature solder than pretty much all OEM, so I get that stuff off and redo everything most of the time.

So the reedy wire I got was a good idea then ha. Dumb luck.

I don't think it is the wire but the esc contacts that don't help at all. Good luck.

Thanks maybe a light scuffing of the post will help.

Have you reached out to sanwa or the place you ordered from ? Maybe you did nothing wrong ... who knows

I bought it over seas and will leave the seller's name out of it, till we work something out. I have recourse on ebay.

Just a small update for this thread...

My ESC is installed and working. Soldering was a bit of a pain for me but my local hobby shop had no issues. I would say its pretty stout if it could handle my hamfisting haha.

I have not tried the code 10 out but its on and my servo and ESC are both set for SSR. This is my first rc car in 10+ years so I have no back to back comparison to talk about speed but so far so good

My reedy 10.5 does not output temp data to the esc so thats a bummer. No clue what motors do that...

The sensor wire that comes in the box is not good enough? I thought the rx482 didnít need extra sensors like temp and rpm
