If the video was in fact recorded after the closing of SP USA, it seems like Adam and Shawn might still have jobs at SP. Hope this is true!

Default Firmware Update damaged

Adam/Shawn

i found out now there is a problem on updating ESC Firmware.

When I update Firmware on ESC GT2.0
usualy some times it's failed,
and then it will have to repeat the Update Firmware.

But last time i Update ESC Gt2.0 the firmware update is not finished,
and the power is accidentally disconnected,
so i switch off ESC and the Turn back on,
the power is on, as the fan is running, but LCD is Stay keep never stop showing "Connecting ESC"
the result is ESC will not running, as result undetected by LCD Professional.
nor it also unable to work ESC with Programming box (no digital light is on).

my assumption is ESC Firmware Damaged, esc hung with Green Light constantly.

So, What to do ?
is there a way to force update on ESC without Detecting The firmware on Speed Passion GT 2.0 ?

i thought i was alone, no i am not
and i found some more evidence here :

Firmware Failed 1

User 1 Firmware Update Failed

User 2 Firmware Update Failed

evidence of updating firmware failed, and unable to retry updates,
is not just happened on Speed Passion ESC.

as my LCD was alright,
is there a way To fix this kind of problem on Speed Passion GT 2.0 ?

Need a solution here.

Im after a new brushless motor , I want to stick with speed passion becuase this is what i run in my TC

Im after one for a 2wd , Looking at a 8.5t as i aint a brilliant driver yet

This is where i dont know what to do as speed passion have 2 8.5turn motors....

The v3.0 , Around 75
http://www.speedpassion.net/en/productDetails.asp?p=8

The v2.0 (but newer design then the old ones??) This one costs half the price at 35
http://www.speedpassion.net/en/productDetails.asp?p=32

Now i aint going to be winning any championships so am i going to notice much differance because obviously the price differance is alot but obviously for a reason ?? surely the adjustable timing doesnt double the price ??

What would you guys suggest for a relative beginner to offroad ?

Default The Right Way Updating/Upgrading Firmware

well thought that too,

As i can remember we supposed able to fix damaged firmware on esc,

i see there is only one i know that can do it

Video The Right way method Updating Firmware

Manual The Right way method Updating Firmware

if you see the video completely,
you will see the right way to do Firmware Updating,
every thing on ESC and battery is turned off,
as their simple programming box is read "Er" which mean read error from ESC.
That's mean Updating/Upgrading Fimware process
does not required the esc to boot/startup first,
where Speed Passion ESC must boot/switch on to do Upgrade/Update firmware on esc.

another way they do is the plug Throught Switch button,
where the process is required for the new firmware.

This is The idea, for Shawn Palmer and Speed Passion,

Speed Passion Professional firmware/software can't do it,
So There must be the new way maybe on Firmware/software for LCD Professional, to do it.

If these we can do it To the ESC, then there is no more fear
doing The Firmware Updates/Upgrades if Firmware Damaged is happen.

Hope my Dig deep will Help everyone running Today and the Future ESC.
Hope Speed Passion will respond immediately.

For me for now the 323 program is working. The 107 and 110 stock make the car's launch very slow. No matter how I gear I can't rundown the speedos with turbo. This is until the new software comes out.

Just finished racing at the TITC event in Thailand where there was over 300 entries. Funniest thing at the whole event was watching the Speed Passion team drivers in the brushless class. They had Tekin ESC's with a heatsink stuck on top with Speed Passion stickers stuck around the outside

Now that is just hilarious
