Setting up the new Tamiya 45069 Tamiya Brushless Electronic Speed ​​Controller 04S with Sensor

The TBLE-04S ESC is replacing our older model, the TBLE-02S. The new 04S has been updated to handle sensored motors in the 15.5T range (for Tamiya motors) or 21.5T range (for aftermarket brands). It features individually adjustable high point, neutral point and brake points as well as having reverse.
Two separate battery cut-off modes are included as well – LOW battery voltage protection (cuts off at approximately 5.6v) and HIGH battery voltage protection (cuts off at approximately 6.2v).
This ESC will be available separately as well as a running change in kits that come with ESCs.
In this video, we discuss the set up of your TBLE-04S ESC, if it even requires it.

This RC truck never gets old! Tamiya Super Clod Buster Black Edition video review by RC Driver

If you walk up to a random person on the street and ask if they know anyone with an RC car and what is it, there is a good chance they will say: I know someone with a Tamiya Clod Buster. The Tamiy a ClodBuster is a true icon in the RC hobby. It has been around for decades and continues to make hobbyists today excited to own one. Greg is exactly that, he’s beyond excited to have a Clod Buster back in his RC collection and the version he got his hands on is the Super Clod Buster Black Edition. This video won’t be the typical review video, but more of just talking about the Clod and what it means to Greg, what he thinks it means to hobbyists and why it’s as popular as it is. Of course we’ll show you details of the truck and even lots of action. We know you want to see it running! The Clod Buster is a true RC classic, we hope you have fun watching our fun with the truck.
