I drive significantly slower with drag brake. Not everyone has the same driving style.

thanks for the help.

I PM'd you a Big track 17.5 setup (200ft straight) earlier that has worked very well here as well.

Jimmy

Attached is the .PDF of my BIG track settings.

PLEASE NOTE: I run the R1 Wurks dual motor fan, so please be careful with your gearing & ESC Settings. Run for a minute and check to make sure the temps are not getting too high.

Any questions, please post here or PM me. Here is a video of the track and some testing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cX53c...eature=related

Default Warranty

Just received my first speed passion setup. 17.5 Short course ESC/Motor combo. Question I have is warranty. If I direct solder the ESC to the motor will that void my warranty? Also if I change the battery connector? I tried the webpage but it is not working. Thanks.
