anyone know why the brakes on the esc get weak or feel weaker? i have a hw/xerun 60a and i have it with a 10.5 on my t4 and the brakes feel week. i turned up my travel on my controller to 150 and double checked to see what my settings were on the esc and its at 100%. wondering if the esc needs to have a new firmware or just dying?

I read recently that if you don't have 100% reverse strength selected it can affect the braking power.

Sorry I can't help you guys, I don't know what could be causing your braking issues. I don't have my reverse force set to 100% and my brakes work perfect.

I'm not sure about any of their 540 cans, but they did just recently release a 4 pole 3656 motor, this one:

It's the black one 3656SD, the blue one is only 2 poles. I haven't been able to find much information on this motor, but it looks like it would be a pretty strong performer. I could be wrong, and their website doesn't say, but I would suspect the motor you have is a 2 pole.

its no biggie, im trying to drive it without hardly using brakes lol its hard. i do like my hw products and its never let me down as far it goes. i just ordered the "just stock" esc and was wondering about peoples thoughts on this. ill be running it in my b4 and will be using an lrp x12 17.5. since stock nationals is coming up i thought this would be a perfect time to showcase a hw product against all high name brands. has anyone tried this esc before and what are your thoughts on it? ive look online to see a video of it or a running video but no luck.

If its 1/8 scale (42mm can) then its 4pole.

This definitely works. I had the same issue a few weeks back, and turning up the reverse force corrected the issue.

I am not sure why it is necessary. It seems especially strange to me, since when I first started using my x9 combo, I had no issues with brake force.

I then hooked up the program box and made a few changes to the base setup, and all of the sudden, brake force went way down.

I have reverse set to 100% and my brakes still do not work. So there has to be some other problem

I'm blaming "weirdness in the firmware." Someone needs to hack these things so we can seize control....

...And speaking of seizing control: Yesterday I hooked up a brand-new Xerun 80A to my laptop via the LCD programming box and most of the 'advanced' options weren't visible. I could get Max Rev, Initial Brake, Neutral, and Timing. 'Motor Type' was greyed out, and none of the others (cool stuff like turbo level and timing punch) were even visible. What gives?

On another note of seizing control...Saturday at the track I hooked my program box up to the ESC to make some changes on brake force and timing and when I hooked everything back up and put the car on the track my motor rotation was backwards.....it was like the program box just developed a mind of it's own and started changing stuff
