User Note

6/10/2021  Check in

6/13/2021 Inspection – ESC is out of warranty by date. ESC will not connect to Panel software. MOSFET board is damaged. Please see picture. Possible causes could be :

  • Improper power input (reverse polarity)
  • Excessive amp draw (extreme burnout, incorrect gearing, too many runs in a row, wiring issues)
  • Motor out of sync (bridged terminals, sensor gap)

 

The cost to repair ESC will be $120 plus $8 shipping. Please reply to this email if you wish to move forward with repairs. Thank you!

Deans connectors and bullet connectors on the motor wires are not recommended for high amperage applications such as drag racing. We recommend using bullets or XT90 on battery connections and wiring directly for motor connections.

Please let us know if you’d like to move forward with repairs by replying to this email. Thank you!

6/29/2021  Received casher check by mail.

6/29/2021 Repaired ESC with new MOSFET board, Control board and Capacitor, then tested. See testing video.

Please note, we do not recommend Deans connectors or bullets on the motor leads as these are not capable of handling the amperage draw required in drag racing.
