that sounds like an even better idea except that it is not removable/separateable. Anyway, can you please be ever so kind to provide some pics of ur past/current setups where u solder the cables together?

Many thanks

Don't cut the motor wires, you can shorten the ESC wires and put the bullet connector's elsewhere. I also hide the colored wires with expandable sleeving so it don't show the ugly colored cables.

By the way, does anyone has any idea where I can find the female bullet connectors for xerun 150A esc?

Is the ESC wired directly as well? Or are there posts under the shrink wrap? I'll look today

On my current setup, I am running castle 4mm bullets without issue.

Once I finally commit to a motor, and I'm real close, I might hard wire everything.

Also, I have a technique for splicing wire together that doesn't use any solder, but you must use the shrink wrap that has glue in it. It's legit, and won't pull apart.



Just strip the ends, fan out the strands, press the two ends together, then roll the stands inside each other, slide the shrink wrap in and heat it up. You could add solder in there if you really wanted to, or didn't have access tot he right shrink wrap.

I do the same as the above here. Except I'll solder the 2 ends together. I've extended the power wires as well.

Here's a good video on soldering. I don't like splicing, I solder direct to teminals when ever possible. Same process works for adding bullets to wire.
+ YouTube Video

So I'm looking at trying out a HW 1/8 esc for the first time. Which one should I get for 4S running in a buggy or truggy?

I am looking at the 150A pro and the SCT pro 120A.

Default Programming Firmware

Can anyone confirm that if you've recently purchased an LCD programming box from HW that the firmware is up to date?. If not, how simple is it to download from the site?. I just got a box within the last week, and just wanted to make sure that there was no need to update the firmware before programming my ESC. I'm running the HW SC8 ESC BTW. Thanks in advance.

Hi Matt,

THe 150a goes up to 6s! If you wanna save some $$ u can try the 120A. But take my word for it, better be safe and spend a little bit more on the 150A. I did that and did not regret it! Oh, pls bear in mind that the 150A is slightly bulky. You might want to check the dimensions before buying. Cheers

Nevermind I see the blue xerun is a sensored unit so I'm going to go with two of those. This will be my first hw purchase so I hope they serve me well.
