Hi everyone, this is my first post.
I have been reading this thread for a while now and got a lot of useful info regarding Speed Passion products (which I use).

I had been thinking that it has been a bit quiet from Adam at Schumacher lately, but today I found a post with a link on the Schumacher corner of this site saying that "Schumacher USA is to close"

It is sad news

Does anyone know how long the warranty is on the ESC? I've got one that has kicked the bucket and I need it replaced. I'm in the US, so do I have to send it overseas for repairs?

Default Speed Passion LCD store firmware

Shawn
Too bad Speed Passion LCD Professional
can't change/store GT Firmware ?
it only has Saved Setting's
which will be lost on during firmware Updates!

This is beyond our mind,

Is there any Memory inside LCD Professional ?
How to Store Firmware on LCD professional ?

Big disappointed.

The old fixed timing motor has timing around 12 degrees. Thats what i have been using as my base timing for 13.5 and 17.5.

Sorry I really don't know, but I ran pretty much the same FDR everywhere including ETS in Czech Republic.
