About SSL System
When used with a SANWA M12S or Exzes ZZ transmitter, RX-482/RX-472/RX-47T receiver and the SANWA SUPER VORTEX STOCK ESC, the SANWA Synchronized Link (SSL) system allows you to change many ESC programming values directly from the transmitter using the transmitter's CODE AUX function. In addition, telemetry data such as motor RPM, ESC temperature, motor temperature (if supported), and battery voltage can be read directly from the SUPER VORTEX STOCK ESC and displayed on the transmitter.

Sanwa/Airtronics Super Vortex Gen2 Brushless SSL ESC
I've been running this in 17.5 2wd Buggy for the past several months and so far it has been great. Seems to be a significant improvement over the SV Sero. It's smooth, brakes feel awesome, and the telemetry with the M12S is invaluable. Motor temps seem to read higher than a temp gun would since the sensors are internal, which threw me off and made me think it was causing my motors to run hot.

The previous review stated that the ESC is ROAR legal only when used with a non-telemetry receiver, which is false. That rule applied to the Super Vortex Zero (previous gen). The SV Gen2 cannot be switched from blinky to non-blinky without pulling the car and setting it up manually. Special notes on the ROAR approved non-timing ESC list reads "Blue LED 0.50 seconds/flash How to Activate Non-Timing Operation: Use Program Box to set M04 BOOST to OFF."
