I am interested but I would like to know total costs upfront instead of being blind sided like with the product this is replacing.
You are correct.

Remember, the Wifi/Bluetooth module are totally OPTIONAL. They are around $40 (I am really guessing it here...) Wifi (APPLE) is alittle bit more expensive then the bluetooth (android) because APPLE do need to charge everyone more because it is APPLE related.

But if being wireless is not something you have to have...the included LED box with USB connector will get you setup, upload firmware ready, without paying any extra.

Only unit that does not come with the box is still the REVENTON STOCK CLUB RACE.....but this time, the parameter can be adjusted via the ESC on board button. The LED box will be optional. Good to have it because the new software (blinky) will have 7 options to adjust....also the LED box will give you the LIPO voltage reading, the ESC temperature reading as well as the firmware inside your ESC reading (On Reventon Stock Club Race it will only read ST0 = Stock "0" software because that unit cannot be software adjustable.)

Remember, even the Reventon S series can have benefit of the future boost software. Talk about the low-budget boost unit for fast club race.
Will the development of boosting software for the GT2.0 series be ending? If not, how long do you forsee updates going on?

Not really....whatever we ended up on REVENTON, we might do a conversion and bring it down to the GT. But at that time, the GT series will be our secondary racing gear, the primary racing unit will be on REVENTON.

Because GT series come from hobbywing and REVENTON from ZTW.

Surely it's at least 50% right? It's common knowledge the sp gt series is oem hobbywing.

I am assuming you have pics then of the Revention from ZTW?

I don't see anything on there site. Not saying you are wrong, but pictures go a long way.

I'm running a 17.5 V3.0r motor in my 4wd sedan and have a question on bearing lube/oil. I recently took the motor apart for a cleaning and I flushed the bearings out with motor spray. The front bearing (pinion end) seemed to have blue grease iwhich has now been totally flushed out.

What is the best oil or lube for these bearings? I've seen the lube by Scorpion for their BL motors and can pick up a bottle if that's good enough. What are you using?

Just want to let you know that the link for the "Reventon PC Software V1.0.3 with USB Drive" is dead on your web site...

I've used Trinity Royal oil with success. Any bearing oil will be fine.

I actually have some of that Trinity bearing oil already, but thought perhaps that the BL motors needed something slightly better.

I was worried that I shouldn't have flushed out that blue grease from the factory.
