mamba 1/18 ESC

Hi, can I use a CC mamba 1/18 ESC with a brushed motor? I know that the question sounds stupid, but I read that with the new firmaware you can use it.

Thanks,

El Flaco

> CC mamba 1/18 ESC with a brushed motor?
Yes but I've not tested this feature myself. The Mamba25 is a very good choice (with a CC USB link cable). Also got a Quark22A Pro Car, it must be faulty, say no more .

Firmware v1.16 onward:

Added brushed motor support. See wiring diagram. NOTE! Ensure that the proper mode is selected on the ESC for your motor wiring, failure to do so will result in controller damage, and will NOT be covered under warranty!

Thanks, I saw that 2 days ago in the CC web page. They have 2 options, "normal" with forward, brake and reverse or just forward and brake for high power

Thanks,
