    Castle Link with Traxxas XL5HV ESC?

    Does anyone know of or have tried any programming on the Traxxas TRX 4 stock esc with a castle link? Just wondering if u can fine tune the settings for the different driving modes that are available or are u just stuck with the stock options that are pre-set. Just don't have the funds to invest in a higher end electronics/motor setup right now. Thanks for any info.

    The XL-5HV is a Traxxas product, not a Castle Creations Product. The chance of Castle Link working is slim to none, with “slim” being very generous.

    Just for kicks and giggles I tried connecting my XL5HV out of my TRX4 to the CastleLink and got absolutely nothing. Normally there are an array of lights that come on when you connect a Castle ESC to the CastleLink, with the XL5, nothing, not even an attempt to connect.

    Right on just figured I'd see if anyone has ever tried b4 I waste the time. I plan on upgrading the electronics/motor soon but just started a new job so gonna get finances lined out then start the process. Thanks for the info tho guys I appreciate it.
