The ESC plugs into the LCD Programmer box through that receiver plug. The LCD Programmer box then connects thru USB to the computer

New from Speed Passion, the Cirtix Stock Club Race ESC and motor combos finally give stock and spec class racers the fair competition they have asked for and all at an incredibly low price. The new systems are ideal for both big race spec handout systems and small club spec racing where equal performance and low cost are a must to grow new classes and attract new racers. The ESCs feature only brake strength and drag brake force as programmable options. All other performance parameters are fixed and there is no USB altering or updating capability in order to deliver the same consistent power for everyone.

Default Speed Passion Software more Option Graphics/value adjustment

Adam/Shawn

2010 Speed Passion Software

Will Speed Passion Have Multi Curved adjustment,
for exponential and timing on software?
rather than such DRRS level, and to have more value/number of DRRS?
so we can have more wider adjustment ?

Graphics Adjustment and by value, for Advanced/Dynamic adjustment ?
through software ?

Limiting maximum Dynamic Timing Adjustment ?

where this would also push us to have Save Option To share ?

What I don't understand is why the Xerun and HW guys feel the need to hijack this thread constantly when they have their own threads with their own support staff?
Sorry if I caused any offence. Actually I am nothing to do with Hobbywing. I have a Speed Passion GT2.0 LPF. I bought it because I thought it was the best value ESC around, and I like and support Schumacher. I could have bought a cheaper Hobbywing equivalent but was willing to pay extra for the support that Schumacher offers in the UK and internationally, with factory representatives answering questions about optimising the products on public forums like this. It is a great help to us all. The next ESC I will buy will no doubt be another Speed Passion. The program card is so much better than counting beeping dots on my Novak GTB. I am racing on a budget, thus buying the LPF version of the GT2.0 which was slightly cheaper. I prefer to get the most out of what I have so that every pound spent makes me faster or more reliable around the track.

Actually the little quote from the software was from the software I downloaded today from the Speed Passion website, I just wasn't too picky about the bit I chose. Maybe it would have been better for me to put this bit in?

[CAR_ESC HW437_V5.0_150A]
batch =1

versionnum1 =5
version1_1 =V1.00_091026a_U
version1_2 =V1.00_091116a_U
version1_3 =V1.00_091204a_3R
version1_4 =V1.00_091207a_3R
version1_5 =V1.00_091211a_NP
down1 =
up1 =

I guess they are a bit more up to date. It really doesn't matter to me who does what in terms of bringing a product to the market, so long as the customer support is there for the product from the company who I buy it from, and Schumacher is pretty good in my book.

All I'm looking to do is really simple, and I'm sure the speedo is capable of, but I'm just not sure how. I want the car to feel like driving with my Novak GTB through the infield but be able to use the full power of the timing advance on the straight. I was thinking that I want the timing to be the physical timing of the motor up to 90% throttle and then have the timing advance only kick in at full throttle, or at a certain RPM threshold. I don't understand what DDRS actually does but am very interested in it. Maybe this is my solution? maybe turning the DDRS way down and the timing way up on the ESC I will get the desired result? Nobody seems able to give me any answers, if that is because it is a company secret then thats fine. Otherwise I thought it would be a fun project to try and look into the software .db3 database file, play around with it and see if I could make something customised to my driving style.

I don't know what the different ESC software (firmware?) versions do. I have read on this thread that this one has more power than that one at the expense of more heat, and this one is for spec and this for mod. Is there anywhere that I can get some info on what the different software versions are, rather than having to go through them one my one on the track, optimising each one with a temp gun and playing around with all the settings?

I am very greatful for the ability to update software to different versions but its hard to make an informed decision with so little information, especially as I'm somebody that has to fiddle with everything.

Ben

Ps, sorry about the long post, but I'm not one for being patronised

It's cool Ben

Unfortunately I have asked for the specific difference between the software profiles for over 12 months and I have never got an answer that will help me to answer that question. I am working on that line of communication.

I get software for drivers to test and I'm told what their start point for settings and gearing are and we work off of that. If it is good enough for a public release we then release it, the latest being the 107 and 110 found on the SP website.

I do have newer software but as of right now myself and the drivers that have run it don't feel it should be released to the public.

Yeah Cain, the "Cirtix stock clubber" is NOT the 2.1 as I have received many emails about that today lol

This ESC is more of a sport ESC, I don't think it is designed for the likes of National racing (but I may be wrong)

I think this ESC is going to be better for things like VTA, F-1, RCGT, 12th Mini and things like that

thats what I am thinking too as with the new rules coming for USVTA, it "should" fit in with the other ESCs like the Novak Havoc and the LRP AI.

I see that speed passion is offering the setup all the way down to a 17.5 motor combo. Would they also be willing to do a 21.5 for ROAR VTA?

Mr. Bailey,

Will you be the "Head" Tech at the 2010 Nationals in CA? Inquiring minds want to plan their shennanigans.....

I know that they are making a 21.5 in that version motor so i don't see why we couldn't offer it. I'm actually going to be pushing for it in RCGT as well
