AUXILIARY WIRE MODES FOR SURFACE ESC'S
Your ESC can be connected to an additional radio channel using the AUX wire (white signal wire) to adjust driving parameters on-the-fly. Enable this feature with Castle Link to dynamically reign in your vehicle's power, enabling reversing, and more. The AUX signal has fixed endpoints of 1.1ms and 1.9ms, so there's no need to calibrate anything to use the AUX wire. If the AUX wire becomes disconnected from the receiver, the ESC will use the value selected in Castle Link instead.
Max Throttle Adjustment: The ESC’s maximum power is scaled from 10% to 100% depending on the signal received on the AUX wire. Perfect for passing the controls to children, neighbors, or your boss.
Max Brake Adjustment: The ESC’s maximum braking power is scaled from 10% to 100% depending on the signal received on the AUX wire.
Drag Brake Adjustment: The ESC’s drag brake setting is scaled from 0% to full brake depending on the signal received on the AUX wire.
Reverse Enable/Disable (Only works in modes with reverse): Reversing is disabled when the controller receives an AUX wire signal above 50% (>1.5ms). When the controller receives an AUX wire signal below 50% (<1.5ms) or if the AUX wire is disconnected, reverse capability is enabled.
Torque Control Adjustment: The ESC’s torque control setting is scaled from 0.1 to 5.0 depending on the signal received on the AUX wire. Torque control is disabled when the input exceeds 1.9ms. Great for finding the perfect torque control setting for your track and tires. Note: Motor test must be performed before using this setting.
Enable Rock Race/Crawler Mode: This mode allows the user to switch between two different modes on the fly: “Race Mode” and “Crawler Mode”. “Race Mode” is optimized for either Racing/Bashing and “Crawler Mode” is optimized for crawling.

Datalog Erase Enable: When the vehicle is stopped, toggling the AUX signal for a few seconds will erase the datalog. The motor will emit a long beep to indicate the log was erased. This feature can be added to any of the other AUX wire modes by checking the Idle Erase box in Castle Link.
