Had my first run with a V3 1cell today in 17.5 boosted sedan. Previously running the regular V3.

Pretty happy with the motor, tried different ratio's but ended up running the same FDR as before. Car felt pretty good, lots of punch and top end. I dont think it ran any cooler though as I thought it would.

Overall, thumbs up

really no need to be a brain surgeon now to understand it i save a copy here it is to assist you also with these 2 at your side while making adjustments it will make it easier for you

M-Technic if you ever feel the need to explain things more please feel free to do another write up you explain things very well and easy to understand
Where can I find V1.37? The speedpassion website only V1.36.

You're right. I downloaded V1.36 from the website but the shortcut says V1.37.

Which software should I use for 17.5T and 10.5T boosted? I also download the Hobbywing software. Should I go with 323 from Speed Passion or 930 from Hobby wing?

I'm having exams this month and in february there's a race every weekend. I go working every saturday so I can't test with the setting. The first race is a club race so maybe I can test the software during the quali's if I have the time.

Make sure you erased any previous version of software. Including the Hobbywing stuff which you don't need. Then d/l to get V1.37.

Upload SP 323.

323 is what I currently have. So no one tried the Hobbywing 930 firmware? My mates their Hobbywing ESC's seems to have more punch then mine. I tried the same settings as them with the same motor, but there's still a difference.

Hi all - I just bought a bunch of mmms and green sensor boards. I integrated them this past weekend and found that one of the green boards is a dud. The motor runs but has less rpms than a black board (I have the Turbo dyno numbers to prove it). How can I get it replaced? Thanks!

I have tried both, there doesnt appear to be any difference between the 2 in my opinion, more likely to be a motor variation.
I am now sticking to SP software and motors, and I am starting to get somewhere I think
these are my settings;
GT 2.0 Pro 323 stock software
FDR 7.65 Track= 210 mtrs with a 50 mtr long back straight
DRRS 6
Brake Force 87%
Reverse 100%
Boost Timing 48
Turbo Slope 18
TurboTiming 12
Start RPM 5000
Turbo Delay 0.2
ACC 450
Track temp was 55-60 Degs C Motor came off after 6 mins running at 76Degs C
Tried 2 different MMM motors and a V3 and all motors came off around the same temps but all had varing top end speed and rip out of corners
Car was slightly down on top end compared to another car with Hobbywing esc and 13.5 motor
any thoughts for improvement?
