He is talking lap distance, not distance from end to end

ie, 280m is how far the car would travel per lap

you can use the prostock (comes in black or blue) and the 323 program. this esc is made for boosted 17.5 class. the gt2.0 works just as good too.

Hi Solara, with the 4.5T motor, do you happen to know how much timing and boost their set-up had with corresponding FDR?

I answered your question on last page already, but I will post again..

Safe way to run 5.5T mod is run 205G, full timing, gear around 7.5 or even higher (depends on motor temp)...motor timing in middle position.

Yes...205g is the pre-installed software for GT2 PRO.

OK...your ESC is probably 2+ years old. Contact Speed Passion USA and let him know you have the old lower case, we have the smoke clear version of the GT2 Pro bottom case for you with the ESC decal....just pay shipping and he will take care of that for you. With that bottom case, you will see the red LED blinking light from the bottom/side.

running this system on 2s will not work, "If using 2 cells lipo powered vehicle, please use our GT2.0 Pro series ESC."

running this system on 4s will not work "Support up to 4 cell lipo with 3000KV motor." the SP 5.5 SCT motor is 3905kv

"Silver Arrow II ESC is best to be used on 3 or 4 cells lipo power"

so the only way to run the esc/motor combo as sold is with 3s, I'm assuming this as I don't have a 3s lipo to test with.

So I'm also gonna assume that if I install a GT2.0 esc and this 5.5 SCT motor on 2.s it will be ok.

at this point the esc is useless unless he buys a smaller motor, which I already know hes not going to do. can I send it in for credit towards another Pro 2.0 esc? you guys are pretty much giving them away on the web site so trying to sell it is mute.

edit, ok so i wired up a pro 2.0 (on 2s) to the motor and apparently its hurt, no rpm whats so ever and after a couple of trigger pulls the red and green lights flash on the esc. (it also did this with the silver arrow esc and 4s)
