Nosram Falcon 8 + Fatboy 8 or LRP iX8 + Dynamic 8

I am looking for anyone who tries to use Nosram Falcon 8 + Nosram Fatboy 8 2000kv or in different color LRP iX8 + LRP Dynamic 8 2000kv.
I would like to share my thoughts on some problems related to a 1/8 truggy powertrain.

I think the power systems in this thread are for aircraft, although someone might happen along that recognizances the hardware your referring to. You may find more help in the electric car section.

Programming buttons stopped to operate. Cleaning was unsuccessful. Computer software for programming doesn't exist.
Few racing days later the ESC microcontroller developed habit to reset itself at small bumps. Slight enclosure bending with fingers - the same result. I guess it is a uC power supply problem related to SMDs or PCB. All visible connections were OK.
In the meantime two gold connectors broke off. I think that cable-connector welding is not a good idea. My soldering is much better but I have more time than an average Chinaman on the production line.

ESC was sent to Germany two three four weeks ago for the warranty repair/replacement.

After four weeks I received the full refund.

All is well that ends well
Nosram Fatboy 8 works like a charm with Tekin RX8.
The same mechanical setup, same raceway, same driver, same lap time - motor temperature 60-70 deg. Celsius, 30 deg. lower comparing to Nosram Falcon 8 ESC. Yesterday the weather was just great: sunny, +18 deg. C.
Quite funny story - motor incompatible with ESC of the same brand.

BTW I was finally able to adjust neutral zone width for my Futaba 3PM.
