Thanks the reply and information.

Im using a V2.0 SP 17.5. I don't want to test with my V3 to take the motor timing out of the factor so i know how the Software reacts. I didn't get to test today, so it will most likely be Monday or Tuesday to see how the new settings hold up. Maybe this software does react to Motor timing. I briefly ran a few laps with my RCGT car with a V3 and it seemed faster on the straight, although the lap times didn't say so.

I think you are on to something! SP has no problems hanging with the best Mod drivers in the world. This stock software is new but quick to progress. It will only be time when the Norm will be Speedpassion esc's dominating at all the tracks.

I also did this but becouse i didn't switch on the esc all that burnt out was the capacitor. I replaced this with a novak one ( as i couldn't get a new speed passion one ) and it works fine.

Hi guys.

Today I ran the software with a 13.5 and tried FDR's of 6.4, 6.7 and 6.9. With the below settings the car was 0.1 quicker with 6.7 compared to 6.4 or 6.9, however 6.9 had the same top end and the motor seemed to use more turbo, but the punch on the infield was a bit soft.

The car overall was fast, but no quicker than the guys running GM120's 7.2. And wasnt as quick as the Tekin.

the settings on the speedo are:


4 DRRS: 7
9 ATMS: 4
12 SUPERCHARGE: 6
13 RPM DEL: 3
14 THROTTLE DEL: 1
15: 5

Geared at 6.7, Duo 2 with no motor timing and after 5 minutes motor temp: 68 degrees C.

As mentioned about the car was quick, but not quicker. It does need more top end. The initial 1/2 of the straight is good and the infield its on pace, but the last 1/2 it doesnt pull away as much as the tekins do.

But this was only my first run today and only managed to play with delay's / gearing and increasing 12 and 15 by 1 digit. Next weekend I think I will keep gearing at 6.7 and shorten the RPM delay to get it to start reving sooner as it doesnt top out at 6.7.

Also may look at changing the DRRS and ATMS values, do they have much effect with this stock software?

BUT BTW. the software is definitely a step in the right direction and no way have i found the sweet spot yeh, I think there is still potential in it to get it quicker. Better than the 107 and cooler, good job

I know it's alot of onroad people here but can someone tell me what a good software to use on my gt2.0 in my hpi blitz in a stock 2wd class. We are allowed to run 27t brushed or 17.5 brushless so I figured i'd throw my lrp 17.5 and speed passion in there since I wasn't using
it anymore. Right now I have the 107 software on my esc since I was usin it in onroad but this will be my first venture into electric offroad. So any help I'd appreciate!

Hello

wish is the best options to run a speed passion v3.0 10,5T motor in the stock class.

Run with advanced full timing or standard timing in the motor with the speedos with advancing the timing of the motor??

this motors they have to run bigger final ratios or smaller final ratios to take full advantage in comparison of other motor bands??

Thanks in advance.
Best regards.
Pedro Silva

I'm bit a confused and having problems finding a balance with the beta software.

Need some help understanding the difference between #4 DRRS (Start Mode) and #15 Supercharger Punch. And how they affect and/or compliment each other? Similarly, #9 AMTS (Timing) and #12 Supercharger Boost Level.

Thx.
