Initial brake was good, slow speed brakes good, but after the first 0.1 of braking they seemed to fade as if the ESC ran out of power.

my settings were:
Brakes 100
reverse force 50
initial 0

We couldnt cure it.... mayb its time for a firmware update? as hte Tekins could turn inside us, even if they couldnt outpace us
Set reverse force to full, and you will have lockup brake power.
No idea why a reverse setting should have that effect, but its true.

Brushless ESC's are getting close to being as smooth as brushed motors. However Speed Passion is leading the way in that initial smooth power delivery I remember from a brushed set up. Kudo's to the SP GT ESC's!

After I figured out what profile to use (the non turbo mod one) for offroad the speedos have been just fine. At first I was trying to use the stock turbo profiles, since I was running a 13.5 and it wasn't smooth at all. I'm using them in 4wd buggy with an 8.5 and 2wd with a 10.5 now and they seem fine.

Thanks a billion !

Solara, any ETA on when the mobile app will be available for Android?
Sorry, I don't.....this new APP and the new ESC is for next year release. We do have plan to have the new APP work with the current version ESC however I won't say it unless I actually sees it or has it on hand.

About window mobile (I am a PC as well)...I think it will be right after the APPLE and ANDROID, short after or they will be release at the same time.

Thanks DAVE...well said. European Championship are well represented by SP with drivers like Marc, Tom, Victor and Lee Martin...etc

Mike (wallstreet), stop looking around and stop thinking too much, it will heart your brain....get Speed Passion. And un-retire from RC. DO IT...

Tell your buddy NEXUS to do the same too....

THANKS....I was totally forgot about this function.

Yes...my REVERSE setting is ALWAYS 100%....it is not just using it for reverse, it is somehow engineered to help for the brakes.

On tight track setting...I use as high as 20% drag braking and only 75% brakes with 100% reverse...I have NEVER expereinced my brake is fading or disappeared........but I don't usually yake the brake and do a complete stop just to cut into the inside line. I usually let the car roll into the corner and carry as much corner speed as possible....or I will hit the board and broke..LOL

I have experienced the same thing. It happens on larger tracks and while a bigger cap works for a little bit, it still comes back. Another thing i have seen with the 100528 is that even when NO drag brakes are set up, i still get drag brakes after a long straight..Not sure if anyone has found a solution other then staying on the throttle..
