so i am saying that, Michael or Yannick at Hobbywing is the Engineer.
because Mr.Pan is from Hobbywing too.

funny thing is that, every last E-mail, since Shawn Palmer moved,
the denial of Speed Passion Engineer "Michael" they said is not.

Now, Hobbywing has Won the TITC, and it's make me more curios.

Who is Exactly our Loved SpeedPassion Engineer is ?
i guess it is very important to know more....

Ummm, really????? Knowing the SW engineer will make me a better driver on the track? Go stir up trouble back in the HW thread.... Oh wait, they are becoming less tolerant of your antics as well.

Hope y'all can help. Picked up a Gt 2.0 LPF speedo and Trinity Nemesis 17.5 motor from someone locally. Everything seems to be in good shape, but he didn't send teh power cap with it. Can't find it on the SP site. Anyone know where I can get one, or if not, what the specs are? I have a couple of Novak and LRP caps laying around, wondering if one will work. Was originally going to put this in my B4, but now thinking about drift car I got just to play with. Will this system work well in the drift car? Assume he's upgrade the software since he says it's already programmed with boost/turbo. I have the LCD programmer for my HW stuff, so I can change anything I need to. Thanks.

The caps from the Novak or LRP brushless ESC's should be fine. If you do a search in this thread, there is a link to the Caps which are being used for MOD as well.

Need to update the firmware. Requires the optional LCD programming box, and download the firmware:

(downloads tab)

For guidance, the brushless esc program software upgrade video (the last one I believe):

cheeRS Phil
You don't want to run the ESC without the cap....the back charge from your lipo/motor (when braking or whatever situation that you are in) will kill the ESC. See you can find the smallest cap that you can find and at least run 1....may be you can run the club spec cap, but I have not try that....

I doubt it....just like TITC, ETS has offical seal on the motor when racing. However, no motor are created equal, there could be 1 faster then the other...but I am sure the gearing and other factors does make the different.

For sure, not the club spec ESC.

You might have the old version of programmer card...I think your best bet is getting the LCD PRO Programmer...that can get you everywhere with all the setup that you can do with your GT2 ESC.

Yes...always.

Thanks for the help on the power caps. The ones I have laying around are the small and large ones from the LRP QC2 Worlds kit, and the large Novak that was for the GT7 (I think, maybe GTX?). All from brushed speedos, and none of then have voltage or uf rating marked. About to do a little more digging.
