Which reminds me, I read on here that the 1 cell had a higher KV... I just looked at the manual online and its much lower... Which is correct?

I have been running the 1cell 17.5 for a while now in the no timing class with the 20+ board in it. I'm actually gearing it 2 teeth less then my v3 with the 20+ board. Timing on the motor set to 30. 1cell is also running cooler then the v3.

Default SP 17.5r comp v3 versus ultra stock

Can anyone tell me the performance difference between v3 17.5t competition motor with zero timing and the specific v3 ultra stock motor.

Hey guys,

I just bought a 10.5T Speed Passion V3 for my Xray T3. I started with onroad racing 2 months ago and a 17.5T boosted Speed Passion motor since that's the class most guys run. After 2 months I'm the fastest guy at the track that runs 17.5T so it isn't really exciting for me anymore (and 17.5T doesn't have enough bottom end imo, it's way to easy to drive for me).

I'm looking for a good starting FDR for indoor. The track is about 14m*30m. The other tracks I drive on are about the same. (Currently, I drive with a FDR of 6.4 on our track with a 17.5T boosted motor and it's pretty close I think.)

Default Reventon on sale already?

Solara

Is the new esc available in the states already? If not when can we get our hands on it?

Anyone got a boosted 1/10 touring set up for the 4.5 MMM? Would it be similar to the Marc Rheinard ETS v3 4.0 boosted setup from ETS but reduce all the timing by about 10 degrees to account for MMM's extra timing?

I noticed with the latest software it says you cannot use any of the onboard or older regular card setting items. Is this permanent if I choose to switch back to an older firmware?

Also, for firmware 1.33 I see two versions available under the speed passion 2.0 GT LPF ESC download list but one of them says its for the GT2.1 only?

What firmwares that are available can work with the Speed Passion 2.0 LPF ESC?

For the programmer box itself, if I update it to the latest firmware can you still access all the old firmwares that the ESCs need?

What stock ESC firmware other than the current one works well?
anyone?

V3 will always be better if you are comparing to the ultra sportsman....the ultra sportsman is design for hand out motor class.

I think that will be a good starting setup....less timing is always better to start if you are not sure what to start.

http://www.speedpassion.net/uploadfi...30GT110323.zip

Update the LCD card with the latest software, please see this video

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


This software, will work on all GT series ESC...2.0 and 2.1 both...does not matter which one, both works. It will NOT work with the older V1 or V1.1. It will not work with the new REVENTON one.

And now...once you have the software uploaded to the ESC, you can always change to other software that you prefer to have...for example, you can load NO TIMING 508...then load 205 for mod, then load 323stock for open stock or 119 mod for boost mod...then back to 508...you can always change software.

I hope I answered your question...

i actually run the 323 with an x12 4.5 octawind, and it s realy smooth.

If i switch on the 119, what can i expect ? Is it wotk with boost/turbo like the 323 ?
or is it like old software with supercharger 1-2-3-4-5-6 etc... value

Thanks

Thanks. I'll give that look tonight. I was just concerned that updating to the latest stock software on the ESC was something you couldn't back out based on how the instructions were worded to me at least. This is for my 8 year old daughter so I want something I can tune if needed with boost (classes here are just full mod), but wasn't ridiculous. right now I believe its 205 mod on the ESC.
