You can use nay motor you like, I personally prefer to use same brand's motor, for no special reason
I have a GT2, and a GT2.1. Your a little mistaken. The GT2.1 is a tad bit shorter than the GT2 and will fit much better in a 1/12th because of this. Your right though, the heatsink is larger but thats because the entire top part of the speedo is a heatsink where as the 2.0 speedo's the heatsink is just mounted on top of the speedo. Otherwise the GT2 and GT2.1 are identical other than the software they come with. The 2.1 comes with the 528 software I belive, though it may be the 422, either way it comes factory with the supercharger programing. The 2.0 comes with a mod motor profile without the supercharger. If you want to swap software you need an LCD programing box (about $30 give or take depending on where you get it from. its SP's version of the Tekin Hotwire). All 3 come with the program card to edit profiles of the software they come stock with.

If your running 1/12th scale id say go with the 2.1, if not save some money and get the 2.0LPF, LPF will run anything down to a 5.5 brushless, though I wouldn't recomend running anything better than a 6.5 in it. the regular 2.0 has no motor limit. The 2.0 has a 10.5 motor limit from factory but thats only because of the supercharger software, my manual says with the mod motor profile software on it its also a no motor limit speedo.

It'd be awsome if you could load software from a PDA/smartphone. My phone is just a phone but I carry a PDA with me on occasion. Be much easier than breaking out the laptop I'm not picky though, I'm happy

Hi guys please help.. My mate runs V3 10.5 prob 200ft straight outdoors using GT 2 pro
His car had the grunt but poor straight-line compared to others, even a 13.5 went past him !! He did have a X12 10.5 and it was rapid on 422 now he's on 528 and we tried 422 again but it's slow in straight line. Is it the V3 10.5 isn't as good as other 10.5's or could we be missing something? His motor timing was mid, we have now turned it to full timing.. I would be grateful for replies and esc setups to bring this motor on par with others in class and NOT have a 13.5 go by, he was gutted !!

with 528 you have to run a higher final drive try like 6.56 to start

This is absolutely fact!! Eventhough I am an offroad SP driver, with the 528 my motor is running at around 80 degrees or less with the same turn motor and gearing that other brands would run 130 deg+

hey guys

I have a 2.0 with the latest program profile on her. i was runnning it with a 10.5 in my pan car. the motor was coming off very cool. she was ballistic, so last weekend. I decided to put the speed passion in my TC5x, paired up with a speed passion 17.5v3 motor.

just nothing it runs but doesn't seem to spool all the way up or even hit the supercharger or anything.

any help would be great i though I might of over gears it so i change to many differerent gearing.

If something might be wrong in side the speedo To whom do i send it to or contact.

Cheers

Drew

there are three parts to the 528 software package,

no timing, no boost, spec profile

stock profile with boost

and mod profile.

528 has also been updated to run 1s
