Default What ESCs can I run Hobbywing software on

Since returning to RC ~5yrs ago I have been using Speed Passion ESCs (reventon pro 1.1) which I really liked as I could use the SP software on PC to set up and I had them really nice (for me). Now the SP software no longer works I bought a Hobbywing v2.1 120A which I also like and I am wondering do I get rid of all my SP or can I put the HW software onto the SP ESCs (I read differing opinions on this?).
Also, are there any other cheaper clones that will take HW software and work with HW multi function programme box?
Hope this makes sense

The Hobbyking XCAR range (60-120A) can be flashed with Hobbywing software. Cheap at 」15-30. I run two of these, one is running a 6.5 in a 2WD.

Obviously depending on what version is on your prog box you'll need to flash that too or you get the "Please update firmware" message when you connect.

Thanks - I will look into those. Think I had the 45A xcar esc in my kids cars a few years ago but not tried the bigger ones. The 120 is currently on back order but I値l try one when they come back into stock
