    What motors are being used?

    And with Sabertooth 2x60 are you using a battery to manage regenerative current?

    @noorbeast

    I'm using Tarp Motors on the market! 12 VDC, 2 HP, 1200-WATTS, 40 AMPS, Reversing Gear Motor, 50 NM Operating Torque and a 90:1 gear ratio.

    And i'm not using a battery, i'm using a 1600 Watt Bitmining Power Supply

    Thanksfor your prompt reply

    hello Jorge
    i donno much about your configuration but at first look you have wrong numbers
    in the SMC3Utilitis.IMO for example first you have to try PWMmax between 150 & 255,
    MAXlimit and Clipinput to 0 with care!others seems OK for now,
