Running boost without Fan (ESC/Motor) ??

Alright...

I see - I have to answer my questions myself.

found the following specification of the Speedpassion GT2.1 Prostock on an asian page:

Dimensions 44 x 32 x 21(H) mm
weight 75 gr.

hmm... pretty havy I think, as the electronic site is already too "fat" for LIPO...
GT2.0 is about 10gr. lighter - has anyone of you experience with both ESCs - does the big aluminium head of the GT2.1 keep it running cooler?
Or - which would you recommend - is there any advantage of the GT2.1 over GT2.0 ??
-meaning both with same stock software

As far as the esc's temps...they are pretty much the same.
If you do not plan on running anything but 17.5/13.5/11.5, then the 2.1 is the one for you.
If you plan on running mod, (4.5 or lower) then the 2.0 is your choice.
*BOTH esc's can run the 100422 software available on the SP site.

Good luck with your choice. I hope Speedpassion brings you much success like it has with me.

I'm usually not like that, but i got kinda frazzled because when I went up to Rheinard to ask him about putting my motor back together he shrugged and explained that he doesnt know how because he never takes them apart, haha.

I'll check it out though, thx.
Josh would have assembled it correctly. Double check sensor plug and lube bearings. Cant think of anything else at the moment.

Will the new software work on the GT2.0 as it says only for GT2.1 Prostock?

mid range power improvement. The last couple weeks I've been turning heads with the power/ speeds coming out of my car. Racers can't believe it is a Speed Passion speedo.

would be nice to get a pdf that uses terminology that matches the document, the lcd and the desktop software... ITs aggravating as F!!@# to be adjusting things with different names.

The desktop sucks arse in my opinion..

If we must refer to each stetting by its numerical order then it would be nice to see those number on the desktop and the LCD. Along with matching setting lables...

sorry for the rant... Thanks for the new software.. but please the software is the hard part lets not forget the simple things like documentation and continuity of terminology.
