-Not all Dimension Engineering controllers operate the same way. Some can automatically detect the baud rate of the master device (in this case the TCB). This includes the popular 2x5 controller which is probably the best suited for 1/16 RC tanks. If you have a 2x5 controller you do not need to do anything with regards to the baud rate and you can skip this section.+Not all Dimension Engineering controllers operate the same way. The Sabertooth 2x5 can automatically detect the baud rate of the master device (in this case the TCB).

-Most of the other Sabertooth models ​such as the 2x12, 2x25, and 2x60 must have the baud rate set through special serial commands. This requires a utility such as the one provided here. Once the baud rate has been set appropriately the Sabertooth will remember it, so the utility only needs to be run once. (Note: the Sabertooth 2x32 is a special case and its baud rate must be set with the DEScribe software provided by Dimension Engineering).+The other Sabertooth models ​(2x12, 2x25, 2x32 and 2x60must have the baud rate set through special serial commands.

 If you own one of the Sabertooth controllers that needs this setup, connect it to the TCB and then connect your TCB to your computer via USB, and finally open a connection to the TCB within OP Config. Select the baud rate you want for the Serial 2 port in the Baud Rates section. Most users should set this to 38400. Now click the "​Set"​ button and the TCB will configure the Sabertooth to use that rate. If you own one of the Sabertooth controllers that needs this setup, connect it to the TCB and then connect your TCB to your computer via USB, and finally open a connection to the TCB within OP Config.
