I run this with an 8.0 turn Mach3 in Mod Buggy. For the price, this ESC rips! I ran 20 timing in the motor and then played with the drive frequency and top timing until I got the feel I want. This ESC does not use a Program box (it's $129 who can expect one) but I did find the setup procedure easy to follow with the beep and blinks to change modes...just follow the table in the instructions and it's pretty easy to use!

Had same problem with on/off button...died after about 9 months.. had to press so hard on the button for it to turn on or off was afraid of breaking it. Finally I sent it into Reedy for repair. I will say they took great care of me... paid 28 bucks for repair and shipping. They replaced it with an awesome metal button that works great now. They should have made these with the metal on/off button because it's so much better than that plastic junk.

I like it. just what i wanted. took some practice to get used to it and a youtube video was helpful but now after having it for a few months I can say its very easy to use and to change settings on and there are many settings to choose from. used all settings in many ways with timing way up and very long run times. no problems.
