I bought a while ago a XR10 Justock and it seemed it didn't have any brakes. Bought recently the program box and it didn't change anything.
Is it a common problem? Can it be fixed? The ESC is out of warranty.
Thanks for your help.

Generally when the brakes go out, it's the first indication that the ESC is about to fail.

The Justock ESC's are notorious for having a weak brake, I have heard some folks having success with increasing the brake strength by upgrading the caps:

After the club in my area switched to a turf track, I found that the brake strength for the Justock was insufficient for my liking and have since upgraded to the ProStock which offers a significantly stronger brake.

It might be worth contacting HobbyWing and asking them for a trade-up offer, they generally provide deep discounts with RMA's outside warranty:

Is your radio on or off? Should be off. Sometimes if you unplug the speedo from the receiver it will help. If your receiver is not putting out a steady neutral setting it wont hook up. That's the reason for unplugging.

The XR8 Plus does not. What are you trying to run this in, that you need blinky mode.

Hello, anyone have issues connecting the 3-1 LCD programming box to a XR8 Plus? When I do it the programming box only says “Connecting ESC”. The box worked fine on my other Juststock esc’s.

Have you tried pushing item while it states connecting ESC? not sure, I had an issue similar on my XR8 SCT Pro, and seemed to take a while, but I pushed Item, and it went into the Program Menu. Not sure if this is the case with yours.

did you get this problem rectified, or did you end up getting a new ESC?

Have you tried recalibrating the ESC. A few months ago, i ram into that exact same problem with my Traxxas Rustler 4x4 VXL. I don't know if this was the actual cause, but, it seemed as if immediately after replacing the stock Traxxas servo with a Spektrum unit. After going through the complete calibration, breaking was working again. Thankfully, I haven't run into this problem with any of my HW ESCs...but, if it can happen with one brand, it can probably happen with any brand.

try unplugging the speed control from the receiver and then hook it up. Sometimes if the speedo doesnt see neutral as a steady signal it wont hook up. Unplugging can help this.

The XR8 SCT ESC says it has a con. 140A. Is that the limit on battery as well? Or is it ok to run a con. 150A batt.?

Is there any way to access the bearing in the end bell of the bandit motors? Mine's destroyed.

Edit: Welp. Seems like I can't replace the bearing. Can't get bearing out of the hole and there doesn't seem to be any end bell replacements.
