Did you use the 107 or the 110 software??

i had been running on the original software out of the box for my GT2 PRO carbon with FDR 5.1 on a 11.5T, just load in the 110stock software. what FDR should i start with?

i had tried a 4 minutes run without changing any gearing and the temp went from 75d.c (6 mins run) to 125d.c in just 4 minutes!!!!!!

i would expect you to drop the pinion size by at least 4 - 5 teeth.

Default Software

Hi With the new software coming out for the Tekin will Speedpassion be coming out with new software to keep up with the Mambas and now the Tekins also? I'm tired of people saying the Speedpassion can't keep up! I think the Speedpassion is the most durable one out but am afraid I'm going to have to buy a Mamba if The new stock software 107-110 is not a major upgrade.I am going to try it today and see.

hey just after some advise really and pointed in the right direction. i just recently bought a speed passion gt v2.0 lpf and sp v3 10.5 pro stock motor to go in my xray t3,

the esc is standard software which came out of the box, i played about with the settings on the programmer box with success, what are the advantages of having updated software what benifits will i get?,

i heard a few people talking about a boost controller on the esc, are they talking about the timing ? or is this included in the new software. the car already is ballistic around the track but now im going to competations around the area i need to take it up a level

cheers for your time, any help be very much appriacted

Curious to see your thoughts as I changed mine to 107 yesterday. For anyone running the new 107 stock possibly with a 17.5 what kind if fdr are you using?
I'm running a t2 009 with a lrp x11 17.5 with the gt 2.0 with 107(haven't tried it yet) but I'd been running a 104 spur with a 42 pinion giving ne a fdr of 4.21. Esc was barely warm to the touch coming off the track but I'm still learning on road. So what range of fdr do I need to shoot for as a starting point with the 107 software?

The hobbywing 312 software should work on the speed passion correct? I was going to put it on instead if the 107 but it's not there on the 1.31 I downloaded. Any ideas where speed passions version if it is??

I also have a sp 2.0 lpf and a 17.5 (speedpassion blackcan not the new v3). The fdr with the stock firmware ran best at a 4.31, I installed the 107stock and went to track today and it seemed to work best with a 4.6. It had so much rip that i had to turn the drrs down from IX to VIII so it would quit blowing the tires out of the corners. The track owner has a radar gun and clocked it 3mph faster than previous firmware. Also the temp came off the same, 135 degees f. before and after the new firmware.

what car are you running that in?? So, you're liking the 107 over the stock? Did you ever give the 312 software a try? I'll give that a shot when I make it back home. Actually got tickets to my first NFL game for Christmas so gonna make the most of it and worry about fdr when I got off the plane home. Thanks again!

I am experiencing something similar, I am currently at 5.0 will be trying 5.2 FDR soon... the following is my setup

ESC: SP GT 2.0 (PRO)
Software: 091107Stock
FDR: 104/35*1.7 = 5.0
Battery: Thunder Power 7.4v 40C
Motor: SP V3 17.5R
Track: 100 Foot Straight away total 100/50 foot
DRRS: 8
AMTS: 7 (22.5 degrees)
Drag Brake: 10%
Physical Motor Timing: 10 degrees


The car is running faster with the new stock software and incredible torque, I have a feeling that 5.2 will end up being the best FDR for my setup and track. So far the lower I am going on the pinion, the quicker my lap times are getting and gearing is getting very close to a DUO/SPX type setup.

Yes i'm running in a touring car, hot bodies cyclone wce 2.167, I never changed the software until today and the 107stock is the only one I tried but was VERY pleased with the results. The track has a 75 ft sraight and lap times average about 9.7 for the 17.5 a-main cars.

Default New software

I ran the 110 on my gt last night and it was not a big difference in power. I did win but there wasn't a mamba there or I would have been in trouble. I tried gearing down some but was slower so I geared back up and advanced the timing a little and it helped to get it back where it was the week before.I think the only way to get the speed like the mamba is to make some major changes in the way the ecs adds timing and what rpm it comes in. I hope it comes soon.
