Not all speed controllers are created equal. The TrackStar 120A GenII ESC is an evolution on previous designs and a true thorough breed in the TrackStar stable. Designed and tested under race conditions the 120A GenII ESC is ready to stand up to the high demands of competitive racers. The Trackstar engineers designed the 120A GenII ESC with one goal in mind, creating an ESC that would offer performance, reliability and endurance when placed under pressure.
The TrackStar 120A GenII ESC offers a host of programmability options that most racers have come to expect and depend upon. Programming can be done track side with the multi function programming box or via PC with the TrackStar USB Link software.
Timing Indicator LED (Blinky Mode)
For future conformity with ROARs Sportsman Class racing rules and to assist race organizers monitor driver compliance in non-timing modified race classes the TrackStar 120A GenII ESC includes a timing mode indicator LED. At all times when the ESC is powered on and dynamic motor timing is set to a value greater than zero the white LED will illuminate indicating that the timing mode has been modified.
For a winning combination use the TrackStar 120A GenII ESC with our proven TrackStar 1/10th 540 Size and 550 size “Red Can” motors for a package that leaves the competition in the dust on performance and value!

See user manual located under the "Files" tab below for full details. TrackStar Link PC software also available for download under the "Files" tab.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS: literally just finished putting everything together and took it out for a run (Tamiya TT-01 and Trackstar 7.5T motor). First: the fan is hella loud (but who cares?). Second: awesome low speeds even without the sensor wire. Bad things: it was a pain to solder (although it was my first time soldering), I couldn't connect to PC (but the program box works perfectly so I don't really care) and once when I went off-track in the grass it just turned off (it was probably the button). Turned back on, still works fine.
Overall I'm pretty damn satisfied with this thing. I will write a long-term review after using it a bit more.I recently bought my second 120a GenII and had a similar problem. All was fine until I connected it to my laptop. After making changes to the programming and updating I could no longer use the programmer box or computer. I got a similar message "connection fail" Thankfully since it was new, it was replaced with only a photo of the problem under warranty. They didn't answer why this happened but I didn't ask specifically.I have two GenII 120A.
I updated them with the last firmware (3.02), and now I can't access my esc
error message : "connection fail"
Plz help !!!!This is my second esc now bought for the Basher RZ-4 paired with 13.5t Trackstar motor
and its just incredible....so smooth at low speed and no cogging just pure power and hardly any heat from motor or esc.
Recommend to anyone thinking of purchasing one.Well what can i say about this little beauty.... 8 battery packs and still going strong
no smoke no bangs. I have turbo and boost set and it barely gets warm, so far im loving it.
Usb link or program box is a must! SkyRc bluetooth works too.I have been using this ESC for the past 12 months both bashing and indoor clay racing. I have used it for STOCK and MOD and paired with the program box is by far the best ESC I have used. Quality is very good and it has never let me down.Big mistake buying this ESC. Mine is not even a year old, in it's second car and glitches to the point where the car is unpredictable and too dangerous to drive to even test the car.
Never buying Trackstar again.Perfect speed controller for on-road applications. To prevent overheating near front of chassis (my mounting position) I recommend cutting a hole in windshield over the fan feed. I used a Turnigy nano-tech 5300mah 2S2P 50~100C Hardcase Lipo Pack, along with this esc and a hobbywing 3.5 turn modified motor for crazy top speed.I put this item together with TrackStar 5.5T Sensored Brushless Motor 6075KV in my bsr bz-444 pro buggy which came with 10,5t trackstar and 80a esc - the difference is amazing, car "flyes" with this combo, couldn`t be happier. I also changed pinion gear from 21t to 28t and the motor doesn`t heat over 75°c, esc stays under 50°c. Car goes 85 km/h with stock esc settings and i am certain it goes over 100 km/h if settings are pushed up. There are so many settings available on this esc that you can really setup your best personal liking. Also the programming card for this esc is also lipo battery monitor which is great in my opinion.
I have purchased 2 of these now, both fried within a few minutes. Combined with Trackstar 3.5T motor. Turbo Timing 0.
Car runs well then all of a sudden it stops completely. If you select either forward or reverse it fries the esc. Motor is no binding and drivetrain is free.
Can anyone help me out?
