Thanks, as for why, I just like the car to have neat wiring and my harness socket is really close to the motor right now.

Hi,

The pdf with the suggested set up 100422 is this also the same for 100528 ? Is this also for the SP motor ? if it is what was the motor timing set to, was it factory set at 5deg ? Just says 'Motor Endbell Timing - STK' I presume this means stock, 5deg.

Thanks.

its rated to use 3 cell lipo so shouldnt be a problem.
Just change the fan to a 12v one as the std one is 6v and will get damaged on 3 cell.

hey, im looking to try the new 528mod software with a 4.0turn, had a friend try it out and was using the standard settings with a few changes but found it to rev its nuts out mid way down a straight, has anyone got a good setup with the esc and mod motor that was successful and what FDR do you recommend???
(running a 416 with a FDR of 8.8 when we tested it)

thanks

I drive a Tamiya 416WE with a GM 13.5T motor and recently got a Speed Passion GT 2.1 (previously had and LRP SPX). Now my car not only looks very sexy but is alot faster down the straight and has a better power band, punchy but smooth.

I did notice though how weak the brakes are. They work, yes, but they arnt as good as the SPX I had. I tried all ESC settings and combinations with no sucsess, messing with the EPA on the transmitter, re-calibrate ESC ect ect.. I use an LRP 5900mah 50C Lipo so I dont think its a bad supply. The SPX on the same car/setup/electronics has much better brakes even on its low settings.

I noticed my GT 2.1 came with a single large capacitor. On the Speed Passion web site it pictures a unit with 4 small capacitors so I replaced it with the optional 'high power capacitor' which I assume is the same thing, looks the same anyway.

This made and *EPIC* difference to the brakes and low down power for that matter. The brakes now lock up the wheels with ease, I've have had to tone them down slightly now.

Has anyone else had their GT 2.1 come with 1 large capacitor instead of the 4 small ones?
Yeah, mine came with the single cap also.
I've not noticed any problems with the brakes though. I have brake and reverse power set to 100% as recommended. I will have to get my hands on the 'high power cap'.
Mine also came with only 14SWG cables, not the 12SWG shown on the website. Don't think that really matters much though with stock.

Try the new 528 f/w to improve performance even more! Be warned though, you may need to gear down somewhat (higher FDR) to maintain punch.

Enjoy!
