Just wonder what I'm missing, or not seeing.

I had the very same problem, I had to sit in a dark room and then I could just about see the LEDS .

yeah it's much easier to use the tones,

holding down the setup button it will beep consistantly...

Push once for neutral, it will beep once

hold full throttle and push again it'll beep twice

hold full brake and push again it will beep 3 times

turn off then on and your good to go

hi,
i just want to ask 1 question. On the speed passion LPF v1.1 box, it said that the motor limit is 5.5t on 7.2v. My question is, if I'm using 7.4v lipo battery on a 5.5t bl motor, would it damage my esc??

Hi Guys

Thinking of getting a SP GT2 as a back up speedo.

What i was wondering though, would i notice any power difference between the LPF and PRO version running 6.5/lipo.?

Thanks in advance

Heya,

Could anyone explain what 'AMTS' Timing settings on the program card do?

If you could explain when and why you would change the timing that would be great

Thanks

After struggling with cogging issues for the past two weeks with my speed passion LPF v2 + 10.5, I decided after reading on here from someone else to move a shim to the other side of the rotor so it sat closer to the sensor.

This worked and solved all my problems, my question to speed passion guys is why should I have to do that? Surely the motor should be ready to run out the packet...

My 13.5 came out of the box with zero endplay, so I had to re-shim it to get to the .5mm endplay tolerance that was recommended. There was no noticeable performance increase afterwards (it was already a rocket anyway) but I imagine the rotor bearings will thank me in the long run.

just like with brushed motors, double checking everything first is a good idea. glad the re-shimming worked

Hiya

First post here so be gentle

I have ran brushed for a long time now and ive decided on going brushless with my cyclone TC , i decided to go for 13.5t speed passion combo , but im not quite sure how to gear it at the moment

The tracks i run are a small indoor carpet track and a slightly larger outdoor asphalt track , currently i only have a 84t spur and 23t pinion with all the standard pulleys , i want to get some new gears but dont want to end up buying all the wrong ones , so im after a rough guide as to what range of spur/pinions i should get...

Also i do have the brushless motor mounts if that makes any difference

oh and also both carpet and outdoor tracks i run rubber and 7.4v 5000 lipo

Thanks for any help/advice its really appriecated because i am lost

Mark
Well i have got the speed passion 13.5 combo , i decided to get a 78t spur/36t Pinion and are 48DP , it works out at 4.68 FDR....

I ran my car for between 5-10mins and i checked the temp , i have no thermometer so i just touched it with my thumb , i cud only hold it on there 2-3 secs , it seems to run too hot or is it just me ?? , i even turned the motor timing down to the lowest and is still very hot , also i have got the over heat protection setting 'on' on my speed control but this didnt kick in

am i worrying about nothing ??

normal racing conditions are between 5 to 6 minutes, if you are running it hard for 10 minutes the motor will get a little hot. 4.68 is a normal gear for a SP13.5 thats the ratio that I normally run on my SP13.5 and my motor temps are about 160- 165 degrees after 6 minutes of racing.

What is your track like? is it tight and technical? open track? How much drag brake are you using? how hard are you driving the car? There are alot of things that can make the motor hot besides gearing and timing.
