In theory yes,but if you'll do it you'll see that even on #1" (Zero) you can feel the turbo kick.I assume there is some kind of bug on menu #12.

If you are running 10.5T or slower motor, use LPF (also, LPF stand for LOW PROFILE, its heatsink is shorter/thinner thent eh PRO version, and if your car's body has HEIGHT issue, LPF is the answer).

If you are planning to run anything faster then 10.5T in the future, get PRO.
Solara its actually you can run motors down to a 5.5 on the LPF I have been runing my LPF speedos with a 6.5 for over 2 years now without any issues. The Pro can handle anything as for as motor.

Jeremy
Actually, you are correct, I don't even remember my CAT SX was running 6.5 with a LPF.....
However, I choose NOT to say that because it is no longer the SPEEDO itself, it is the software within....if running LPF, with STOCK software and supercharger, mating with a 6.5T motor....guess what will happen?

But you are correct, LPF can go as low as 5.5T. Just I would prefer to run a PRO if I am running anything faster then 9.5T.

Thanks for the correction.

Default no problem

Solara no problem I was just making sure that we didn't steer somone away because not being able to handle a motor. Hope I didn't come across mean just trying to help and sometimes the internet comes across bad. I agree if you can afford it the Pro is worth the money but for the money the lpf is a awsome speedo. Agree with you totally on the stock software no MOD motors.

Oli - with no time to test or adjust - I would leave what you have on there already. This is a whole entirely new package, and no need to ruin your raceday if turning it off doesn't "make it exactly like the previous version".

And that makes for another caution:
This package is not a "magic bullet" that you load up and it's fast right out of the gate. You need to time to run, check lap times, adjust settings, run, check lap times, and etc for several days/sessions to really dial it in for your car and track. Then report back in with your optimized settings so we can build a database in order to give folks advice for a "head start" starting point when it goes public.

If you are headed for a big race weekend, I would leave the new stuff off till the mains are over and then start some practice time with the new software afterward.

Cheers for the info. Yes I understand and intend to do some testing with it soon. I'm under no impression I can throw the new software on and go, so I'll probably play it safe and stick with the 107 for this weekend, which has proved pretty competitive up till now anyway!

Also thanks Adam for your advice too, I'll certainly bear it all in mind when I go testing with it.

Oli

Just some interesting thoughts really, had some odd (good) results earlier in the week with the GT2.0 Pro.

when running the 110 software the usage on the cells was between 2400mAH and 2600 mAH, for the same speed (lap times) with the 231 software the usage was only 1600? Any ideas where the extra efficiency has come from?

Cheers

Default A day with "230"

I loaded the 230 software last night and tested on the track today. Carpet, touring car, rubber tires. SP V3.0 13.5T motor, GT2.0 pro esc.

The recommended settings (everything moderate, 14 disabled and FDR of 7.0) is VERY slow! But even with an FDR of 7.0 and punch and boost maxed out; motor temps 100 degrees AND was slow. Then I started to bring down the FDR and taking temperature readings very frequently. Even going down to 5.3ish; the motor was around 150 degrees. No where close to going poof. Good infield punch and top speed.

"Good" but not "Spectacular". This 230 software is A WHOLE LOT better than 1110 or 1111 (yeah, ditch 1110 and 1111!). However, still not quite there with the Tekins (honestly! I'm being really really HONEST here!). What I noticed was I had to give a lot of throttle to go fast so midband throttle control was kind of poor. I dialed in a very aggressive throttle curve on the radio to compensate for it. It was like I'm trying to take deadband out of a slow nitro engine+sloppy clutch. Although the Tekin had a lot more power (a LOT more PUNCH), the key is not only in the amount of punch, but rather the control (throttle control authority)! That is; there's more precise control over a large power band from the kick point of the initial boost all the way to just before full throttle extra boost. It was predictable and controllable and more power. No, the tekin was not maxed out on settings for power; it was set for the most usable power for the given track condition. Something for SP to catch up to, still.

In the end, the SP on the best setting I got would be fast enough for most guys. Will put you in the A-main at most clubbys but not win it. BUT I did have a very pleasant day with it at the track today knowing there is still PLENTY of room for improvement in the SP software. SP is definitely heading in the right direction. And I have a feeling that one of the upcoming firmwares will put it totally up to speed with the Tekins. Keeping my fingers crossed in the meanwhile.
