The Reedy Blackbox 1000Z+ ESC / Sonic 540-M3 7.5T Combo gives Reedy fans a single purchase solution to set up their car with Reedy power.

Reedy's Blackbox 1000Z+ is a simple-to-use, economical, and powerful ESC that features timing options for Modified class racers as well as zero-timing blinky mode for Spec class racers. Excellent throttle and brake feel, a wide range of adjustability, and robust hardware make the Blackbox 1000Z+ suitable for a variety of racing applications.

Adjustable ESC Settings:
Drag Brake - Adjust automatic braking strength when the throttle trigger is returned to neutral.
Brake Frequency - Create a smoother or more aggressive brake feel.
Maximum Brake Strength - Increase or reduce the ESC's maximum braking power.
Power Profile - Increase or decrease "punch."
Drive Frequency - Create a smoother or more aggressive throttle feel.
Timing - Select the amount of timing fed to the motor to increase power and top speed.
Operation Mode - Select Forward/Brake (F/B) or Forward/Brake/Reverse (F/B/R) operation.
Restore Default - Restore the factory default settings. 

Modified class racing is about controlling power. Sonic motors have always been known for their linear power delivery and the 540-M3 does not disappoint. Similar to the Mach 2 on the outside, a closer look shows that Sonic 540-M3 Modified is a completely different animal. A 3-piece CNC machined can reduces weight while improving airflow, component fit, and bearing alignment. Inside, the changes are less obvious, but result in huge performance gains. An updated stator design improves mid-range feel which both on- and off-road racers will appreciate. A balanced, high-strength sintered rotor provides powerful, fade-free performance thanks to improved manufacturing processes.
