Hi Paulus

I like this one would be a good choice. Smooth plenty of power.

Brand new SCT Pro/4700 combo

I calibrated the esc as per instructions and it says to wait 3 seconds after the 3 beep brake calibration to test throttle but my throttle doesn't work. I have to turn off the esc and turn back on for it to work. Is this normal and the instructions forgot to mention to turn off and on the esc switch after calibrating?

That's the same way mine worked. Tried 3 times. Seems to work OK.

Hi, I just build up an Asso B4.1 and use my spare ESC from the Mugen MBX6 Eco. It is an SCT Pro and I'm happy with it in the Mugen but in the B4.1 the power of the motor is really weak. Even with highest timing the power is really low. I have an 9.5 T Motor and it feels like a 13.5 T. I tried an other ESC (Nosram) from a friend and the difference was amazing.

Is the SCT Pro the wrong ESC for a 2s 2wd buggy? If yes, why?
Now I ordered an 120A V2.1 and hope it will perform better!?

hey guys my two cars are both running hobbywing esc's (sct120a and xerun150a) and today both were cutting out on me. sct120a is about 4 weeks old and the 150a I've been running for well over a year. but today they would both cut out after a few laps. both were cool, no heat in motor or esc and then if I turned the power switch off then back to on they would start right up again. any ideas why this is happening or what I can do to stop it. any help greatly appreciated.

Internal BEC's finally gave up and your Savox servos are browning out your receiver?

Do you have the latest software in the sct pro ? Try dl it again. Not for nothing but the sct pro is too large for a 2w buggy.The v2.1 will work fine .Its really tough to troubleshoot without the buggy here.
