Just a few suggestions on the setting on your CC Monster Max esc's. One thing for sure is save yourself the trouble and get the CC link teamed up with your favorite computer you'll have one heck of a tuning tool for any of your CC products. Second is understand what the PUNCH control does. Punch control is a limiter that limits the amount of power that the esc can draw from your batteries. Setting the Punch control at 0% allows for full battery power to be allowed to the motor. A setting of 80% will limit it that much, you'll be allowed only to draw about 20% of the power that the batteries can provide. So the higher the puch setting say 50% to 100% means that you throttle is limited that much. A lower percentage say from 40% to 0% means that your throttle is limited very little at those settings. Now take caution with these settings. Less or no limiting can cause system damage. Your battery wires and connectors must be able to handle that kind of current which in most cases will be well over the 70 amps rating on a Deans Ultra or Traxxas plug. If your planning on using these higher settings I would suggest either our 6MM bullet plugs or the Castle 6.5mm bullet plugs for your battery connections. They can handle the high current demands and are less likely to melt off under these high loads. Deans connectors and Traxxas connectors can unsolder under high current loads and can possibly short out causing severe damage or a Li-Po fire. A sign of this happening is heat shrink missing off your Deans plugs. If your unsure if your wires are getting to hot check them with a simple temp gun device every 5 minutes. Adjust esc setting accordingly to allow cooler wires or switch to high current bullet plugs. The last thing I want to cover is the use of the OVC on the Monster esc. It has come to my attention (The hard way) that the "Auto Dectect" mode is a soft cutoff. Meaning it will trip when the correct voltage for your packs is met. BUT If you hit the throttle again it will reset and bypass the LVC allowing the packs to be drained past their LVC point. So to protect your packs we recommend that you at this time use the Custom settings or the pre set LVC points. For a best setting I would suggest say 12.4 to 12.6 for a 4S set-up and say 18.4 to 18.6 for 6S set-ups. That give you a "Cushion" area. With the Custom LVC or the presets the LVC will shut down the throttle every time that setting is hit. Your packs will not be allowed to go past that setting. As always with high voltage systems take special care in the set-up, if your not sure get a data logging device, temp gun and even a simple watt meter to help you to determine if you have things right. Just a simple monitoring of the esc and motor temps can save you a ton of trouble and money. Play it smart read and learn the settings and learn about what your dealing with. If ever a doubt always ask and never be afraid to.
