Install the desktop software, hook via usb the LCD box and update the box. I have the same HW box for my SP software and ESC;s no problems ever.

Hi,

I'm sure the answer is somewhere in the 400 pages dedicated to SP esc's but can someone tell me what the new firmware actually does and the benefits of upgrading the firmware.

Also what settings would you recommend for a Pro 2.0 with a v2 5.5 in 511.

Thanks

Matt

Flashing to certain firmwares will unlock or lock features.

For mod there are 2 versions one with timing one without.
For stock there are various versions that unlock variable timing or boost or turbo what ever floats your boat.

Currently i run my 13.5 with stock software the allows variable timing settings and my 10.5 with mod-no timing and i crank the timing at the motor.

Im sure the others will chime in with more details

If you are indeed using the SP GT2.1 EX, of course we prefer you to run the SP software.........
I do want to use the SP software, just needed to know if I could use a Hobbywing box.

Default v1.35?

What happened to v1.35? On the SP Americas website, it seems like all the ESCs only have 1.33 to download.

Not that I need to download it (it's what I currently have installed on my computer and on my GT2.0 LPF), but is there a reason it's not listed for download anymore (i.e., it's not good to use)?

V1.36 released
............and we are not going to support V1.35 anymore and thats why I removed the old version, and I will remove all the previous old version cause all the software we had so far are be found in the new V1.36

Stop using 1212 as this is not even close compare to the new 323STOCK software. Also, try the new 119MOD supercharger software for MOD motor.

Here is the link....you guys will love it. Make sure read the attached PDF file as this Supercharger improvement is alittle different then the previous 1.35 or 1.33 version.

http://www.speedpassion.net/us/escsetup.asp

I am in the middle of creating some setup for 17.5 13.5 motor...as well as some 8.5 10.5 for mod...all are using 323STOCK software (YES, 323STOCK software for MOD racing)...and mainly in OFF ROAD setup, but I have some on road indoor and outdoor setup as well....stay tuned.

Also, new 323stock and 119mod setup sheet....

http://www.speedpassion.net/files/Sp...k_6may2011.pdf

IMPORTANT: You must update the LCD programmer from the 1.36 version before you can see the changes for the 323STOCK, it is a must do process.

downloading!!!

WARNING repeated. read the PDF.... LED box users will not be able to make changes without an LCD box... Not a big issue for most, but i typically flash my friend's ESC's for them and they use the LED box to make changes.. the PDF points out this wont work anymore

Thanks JOEL....LCD box is the way to go if you want to take advantage of the new update...or at least, borrow one.
