One additional piece of information - I adjusted the amount of boost in 208. Adding boost makes REVERSE even faster and had no effect on FORWARD.
Here is the link that shows the problem:
That's kind of funny. Here is what I would start with, reset the speed control to factory settings. That way you are starting with a clean slate.
Make sure your throttle is reversed on the radio. (I have this radio) I might try resetting the profile for the particular model too. There might be a setting in the radio that is preventing full throttle, although from looking at your lights they seem to flash as if the controller is seeing the end point.
Now calibrate the radio to the speed control.
After that check the motor timing and make sure that it is positive for the motor direction.
If this strangeness persists, I would update the firmware again via the hotwire and then start over.
Once you get things straightened out, pick one of the new default profiles and see if you can tell the difference. Otherwise the factory default Custom profile that is selected after the firmware update is in "dual mode" and will not have the power that the sensored only mode gives you.
Anyway, try these and see if this fixes the problem.
