Any insight as to what could happen if I run my gt2 pro in 1s blinky without the capacitor?

Thanx, Kevin

Personally it ran awesome for a week then it just started doing weird things, plug everything in no power but fan would run, then my car started doing random shut downs, I tried it with the sensor plugged and unplugged. I put all new bullets in for battery's problems still happened then switched receiver and also ran a external bec and problems would still occur. When it ran good it was awesome but personally I was trouble shooting more then actually driving. I love the tekin motors they are smooth. I've also ran the mamba systems (had one of those blow a pin size hole through two off the bullet connecters) I personally love the speed passion and for the price it's great.

My car, (red/black toyota mrs) was running a 2 year old havoc and a ballistic 21.5 w/2yr old 40c 5000 battery, that has been in more cars than I can count. I think it finished 5th in the A.

Now, I did notice a huge difference in performance by just changing from the Roush Saleen Mustang to the 2007 MRS
You are just sandbagging....

It is INDOOR time...and now, you have the chance to follow me for 6 minutes...

I myself never did that, and never seen one do without one...however, if the SP cap is too big for you, can you purchase one like the TEKIN and solder it like the TEKIN does onto the GT2 PRO?

I kinda figured out you are running on 12th scale and you don't want to use a big cap....

Without a cap...all those voltage will be back fired directly to the ESC itself...not going to last long.

You can borrow a cap from someone?....something reasonable. Does not necessary need to be by SP...

Questions?? SP SA V2.0 1/8 ESC and SA 5.5R

Quick question for the SP peeps...planning on getting a SCT 4x4 in the near future and was wondering if you can run the SP SA V2.0 ESC and SA V2.0 5.5R combo on a SCT platform? Or is it only intended for 1/8 scale application? Thanks for the quick reply.

I don't see why not the paper work shows it will run with a motor that size. a lot of guys run the rx8 in sc 4x4. Just make sure you got the space it's a lil bit wider then rx8

I am after some advice on changing from a 13.5 ver3 to the 13.5 MMM.

As the MMM has more timming and I run 0 timming on the ver3, what is the best way to tune to the latest software.

With 10deg more timming am I better to wipe 10 off boost timming or 10 off turbo timming. How about 5 off each?

What is ballpark gearing change going from ver3 to MMM. Say drop 2 teeth or add 2 teeth.

The Silver Arrow will not run your SCT in 2s, use the GT 2.0 Pro with the SA 5.5. Works like a charm with the mod software.

Howard or Albert would be better to answer that one. Haven't tried that esc with a 550.

Thanks for the reply...trying to find the most affordable way to complete my project (SCT 4x4) since I plan to get the items direct from SP USA warehouse. I hope Howard or Albert can provide some input.

Default KO Radio issues

hi guys, having troubles setting end points with the KO propo. steering works fine, but wont accept throttle input, when you calibrate the speedy, it beeps for neutral, then press the red button, and it should beep to input throttle, well it doesnt beep. i just hooked up another speedy and another motor (all new from box) and still does it. wondering if anyone has issues with the KO radio gear to set end points. have radio set in N mode, not high response, and have reset that model to factory reset. kind of thinking its a reciever issue, but my mate had to leave asap , so couldnt nut this one out. Cheers for any help. Patto......
