Hi All, I am thinking of running a 2.1 prostock or EX2.1, flushing the stock software to mod software, and running a 6.5 motor / 7.5 motor in a 1/10 4wd buggy.

Looking at the Tresrey spec ESC, it looks identical to the prostock, but is red and promoted as a modified ESC... which makes me think this is possible?? or is it because Tresrey have "spec" their ESC by changing internals to have more fets and cope with modified motors?

I know for mod i should be looking at the 2.0 esc's but the prostock is much smaller in size and can fit better with more real estate in my 4wd.

Can some one please confirm if this is safe / possible from experience, or proven track knowledge?

if its not possible, I guess I will stick to the 2.0... or wait for an updated esc from SP

thanks

I always thought they got the 2.0pro board and put it in their own case.

Yeah, hence I said I thought they bought 2.0 boards and got cases made and put the boards in. I have the 2.0 pro and 2.1 pro stock and they're the same size.

Also, the motor wouldn't run unless you spun it by hand. I picked up another 21.5 motor, recharged the Lipo and I still get the red blinking light. I reset the ESC per the instructions and still it blinks. Swapped out the sensor wire too. Batteries are charged and work fine in other cars. Ideas?

Thanks

PS. Just got a new Cirtirx ESC in. Hooked it up and I still have the flashing red light. Now I'm really confused...
PER ROAR rule...the blinking RED LIGHT is a indication that you are running NO TIMING software....it will blink forever if you are using club spec, and you do want it to blink.

It is the motor sensor port that has the problem if your car won't start without a push...if it is a V2, open it up and check/dust off any dust on the sensor and try again.

No....Tresrey RED unit is indeed identical to our GT2.1 PS with very minor specification different...Tresrey is our Japan Partner and they would like to have their own unique color and design. Just like the new ESC they will have their own version similar to ours. GT2.1 can run modified motor up to 5.5T...so does the Tresrey unit. But they are not using the GT2 PRO internal board like other was guessing.

GT2 PRO is by its own design and case. IF you take off the fan from the GT2 PRO...it is not really that much different in size. Try to measure them side by side...

For my recommendation..if you are running MOD, I always tell customer to go PRO...just there are ROOMS for them to expend to motor speed like 3.5T without any problem. But just like GT2.1 PS, LPF...it can handle motor up to 5.5t....

But running BOOST with mod, that is different story, I would recommend GT2 PRO hands down....

Hi,
the GT2.1 EX is said to be discontinued on SP website. Is that true or it's an error and more will come ?
If no more EX, will there be a new one ?
