I'm guessing it will be at that link too. But I don't think they were going to list every single link...

He says clearly turbo, but actually he does not say what will happen this week, if it is just an announcement or if it is actually posting the new software....

The SP 3.0 motors are geared differently from the DUO that he was running, no?

Hi everyone just thought I would let you know that today in the post came two brand new Speed Passion GT 2.1 Pro stock edition (Black) speed controllers from Schumacher.

They got their first stock in last week (I believe).

My son and I both have an Mi4LP and we cant wait for Friday when we can try them out for the first time at our local club night, ready for an all day meeting on Sunday (at rug racers).

I will let you know our opinions and how we get on after this coming weekend.

Hey everyone!

Sorry about the spotty communication here the last few weeks. Clearing up SchuieUSA and gearing up the Speed Passion USA support office has had me tied up 24/7 for 3 weeks straight, and I just had my first real day off this last weekend

SO....
If you haven't seen the news, interviews and such on the web yet, let me introduce myself. I am now heading up the new King Golden USA Support Office here just outside Tampa FL. King Golden is the parent company to the brands of Speed Passion electronics, Speed Power batteries, East Coast Bodies, and Pro Drive hop-up parts.

If you have immediate support needs, please email me (spam proof version in signature below) or call our toll free line from 9am to 6pm Eastern time.

I'll be here to answer general questions when I have time, but I can't be here all day everyday, so again - for immediate support, use one of the above methods please.

We will be rolling out the Speed Power direct online buying for USA customers very soon - could be as soon as tomorrow. When we've got all the back-end bugs worked out there, the USA side of Speed Passion will be activated for USA consumer purchasing.

The Speed Passion model is simple - we are factory direct now, which makes for better pricing for you the consumer AND for our dealers. The website price will be the new retail price, and you can then buy it for that price regardless of where you buy from - online direct, online from a USA web shop, or right from your LHS shelf. We are in process of getting USA dealers set up right now, so if you run a shop and want to bring on the line (and trust me you do) - contact me and we can get you going pronto.

I've been doing a lot of back-end web text and marketing work the last week, so I'm not 100% up to speed on "when is X going to be released?" just yet. I'll be getting into that this week.

As far as software goes - I spec'd out some all new settings and software procedures for SP a couple months ago, and the resulting new package is being checked out internally and by a few of our top drivers right now. It's called "Supercharger" mode, and preliminarily it looks like it's got everything we need to jump straight into top competitive 21.5-13.5 limited motor racing again. We're still polishing it a bit, but hopefully we'll be able to get it out into public beta this week or next. I know this has been a long time coming, and you're patience will soon be rewarded!

Between all the brands, we have some AWESOME stuff in the deep skunkworks, and some almost ready to break publicly as my workload settles down in the coming weeks - stay tuned!

I'll use this post as a "break point", and do my best to answer everything AFTER this one as time allows. Thanks for your patience guys - good days are close at hand for Speed Passion in the USA!

I am sorry but I dont know, I am guessing that I would need the programming box to find out?

I am waiting for my programming box to come from Schumacher, once they get stock again.

For the new software, will this be not recommended for 10.5?

The Supercharger stuff on 10.5 needs to be done very carefully. you can use it, but with most of the settings turned down pretty far.

Are you running in a 10.5t only class? If not, you're better off with the standard software and a faster mod motor. Much less chance of blowing something up.
