Default hey guys.

I went to the speed passion wedsite and downloaded some software that was under the download button. and all I got was an old version of the software.

Is there a link to download the v1.03_070904

Also ive got both programming cards, the cheap grey one, and the black lcd screen one. Im guessing you use the black one to download the software to the esc, and use the grey one to go through the settings?

Go back a couple of pages and you'll see the download.

Default Hey

Is this the link your talking about?

http://www.filefactory.com/dlf/f/b0a...arger_Beta.zip

Im not that good with this adware download sites. Everytime I click on download I get a trivia on history.

Gee did I open a can of worms.

Yes I did mention the new name appearing on the LCD screen. Not that it makes any difference to how the software works. I was disappointed that I had no reply except from a clown. Even thou itís a beta version, you would of expect this to be pickup on the alpha test. If Speed Passion wishes to distance their image/link from HW then they should not have allow this little error to happen.

My SP products were purchased from the US therefore my support is from the US.

It isnít SP job to support any other brands that may modify their ESC, other then their own. If you do decide to follow that path then except the consequences. Itís like if you use different brands of motherboards and video cards and have problems. Each manufacture will blame the other product. Why, because each manufacture donít fully test on each other products.

I will continue to support SP because of the support they have here.


Cherry2 is probably some ones unloved child, just seeking some attention and approval. Itís sad to see there are people like you. Itís obvious that you donít understand the meaning of ďtrollingĒ, other wise you would not of replied to my original question in the manner that you did and continue to do other.

Once again sorry to Speed Passion USA and the forum users.

The true is There is version V1.03_090704, perhaps Born2Run typed it mistakenly.

and Born2Run are you sure LCD Firmware fix your drag brake issue ?
have you tried to return to v1.02 LCD Firmware after you fix the brake issue, and find it's wrong on v1.02 LCD Firmware ?

Depend on how you want brushed mode ?
there is 2 way you can run Brushed Mode

1) Forward and Backward,Brake Mode
2) Forward Only and Brake Mode

Which one do you like to wire ?

racingnazy:
This is BETA software. Meaning unproven, only internally tested so far, but being provided semi-publicly to gain some more feedback on the functions and functionality before being revised/repaired/released to the public as an officially "safe" and "improved" version of software. So please don't take the following as rude in any way - If renaming/replacing program files and having to do a little searching for the beta software is beyond your patience or comfort zone, I would respectfully recommend waiting for the public version of the software.

Again with no disrespect meant - we purposely make it a little difficult to get and load BETA software. For those with the time and patience to get it, load it up successfully and spend several practice days dialing it in and all the while providing feedback - you are SP heroes and I sincerely thank and salute you. You have made the product better for everyone.

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.
Shawn?

Default IMPORTANT FOR ALL BETA TESTERS!

With the help from Brandon in MS today, I was able to make some mental connections from a previous call with the SP owner and engineers earlier this morning.

I was told "the software has to be loaded twice for the full effects to take". I initially interpreted that as meaning the new files had to be copied/pasted twice for the new beta software to show up.

After several phone calls with Brandon in MS testing beta software today with no luck, and then an email from him just now saying "I reloaded the software again onto my ESC, and now it seems fine" - I'm putting two and two together. This has now been confirmed from the SP owner and engineers - please "upgrade ESC" TWICE when putting new beta software on your ESC!

So - If you have loaded the new software onto your ESC and observed "little or no difference" to 107/110 - please load it (or reload it, and then) again a 2nd time! (and hold onto your shorts!)

All the feedback we have received (with special thanks to Charlie Barnes and Rich Stidham) so far tells us we are 100% with Tekin on the straight, and eating their lunch in the infield when the settings are optimized. And this is also on a track (in Rich's case) with a 165ft straight!

Also noted from this morning's Skype call - 230 has about 5% more power (both punch and top speed) than 231. PLEASE BE CAREFUL with 230 - many motors have been smoked with too much Supercharger punch/Supercharger boost in testing!

Also confirmed tonight:
AMTS timing is interconnected with the Supercharger function. In Alpha testing (and in general for AMTS) setting 8 gives highest top speed (but lowest punch). Setting 1 give most punch, but lower top speed. Depending on your motor and track, AMTS setting 6 or 7 might be best for you. (lower for lower turn motors, higher for higher turn motors.)

DRRS is still active as well. Generally setting 8 is still best. Lower settings will lower punch and allow higher supercharger and AMTS setings for higher top speed.

As recommended by Adam,the 205c or 205g seems to work best for offroad. "c" is smoother, "g'' more aggresive. I'm running 205c in my 2wd buggy w/ 13.5. Quite happy with it.
I have not had any feedback on the newer software. I've heard some are using 10/110 but I can't say from experience.
