The pre-programmed default ESC settings work very well in most situations, but if you want access to additional settings for fine-tuning, you can do so using optional Program Card (#27034). The following settings can be changed using the Program Card:

Initial Drive: Throttle applied the moment the trigger is moved from the neutral position to the throttle range.
Low-Voltage Cutoff: The cell voltage at which the ESC will shut off to protect the battery.
Drag Brake: The brake force applied when the throttle trigger is returned to the neutral position.
Max Reverse Power: The maximum reverse speed allowed relative to the forward speed.
Punch Control: The aggressiveness of the application of throttle.


Setting Value
Initial Drive 2%, 5%*, 10%, 15%
Low Voltage Cutoff (V/cell) 3.2, 3.3, 3.4*
Drag Brake 0%, 50%, 75%, 100%*
Max Reverse Power 50%, 75%*, 100%
Punch Control Soft*, Medium, Strong
