On/Off switch
« on: October 16, 2013, 10:37:33 AM »
Guys, just want to get a feel around here what everyone's preference is.
Who uses the on off switch that comes with the esc and who "hotwire" their esc's?
I'm thinking of hotwiring mine to get the cleanest wiring possible, but only if it will have no ill effect.

Hi Charel

I see in your signature that you have the LRP Flow. Just remember tthat the flow's switch is "normally closed", in other words that the contact is closed in the OFF position and open in the ON position. If you want to remove the switch, just cut it of, leave it disconnected from each other. This is different from most other ESC's.

Yes it will look cool but I'm going to say leave the switch alone. Let's say your car starts acting weird and just needs a reset, in my opinion it's going to be easier for you a marshall to flip a switch off and on than to disconnect and reconnect the battery.

Thank you guys.
Thanx Grumpy, I will keep that in mind.
Skitee, That makes sense what you are saying, so might just leave the switch alone, its not that heavy and not too unsightly.
