(1) You do not need external power source for the card, just plug in the LCD card with the ESC (ESC need the lipo power) and going toward the USB on the computer.

(2) http://www.speedpassion.net/uploadfi...30GT110323.zip

(3) Checkout the video on how to upload software or using the LCD programmer card.

Default State titles

We have just had our state titles here with little preparation I managed to qualify 4th and finish in second place over all using the my speed passion speedy and the 17.5 MMM motor in boosted stock racing, this was on a indoor track on carpet small technical and fast the motor performed well and was strong with consistent temps around 70 degrees.
I will post the speedy set up for those of you who may be interested
Thanks for great product sipped passion super smooth and reliable

Awesome...please do share you setup. I still like to see the boost setting even though it is something unheard of here in USA.

No...the LCD card is a bridging device between the ESC and the computer. It does not store any setting nor software on it. Everything will be stored into the ESC. And the software itself is came from the computer. You have to have the computer, LCD card and ESC (with lipo power) to have everything turned on.

Im having a problem with my gt 2.0 , It works fine except for when you flor it from a stop a green light starts flashing and it kicks out of sensored mode. If you drive really light throttle its fine but as soon as you give it full gas it starts flashing, it does this with my novak 550 4.5 and also my 3.5 d3 550, and with my new 4600 pro-4. Is there a problem with my esc, I have tried different sensor wires also and it does the same thing. Could I try uploading new sofwear and recalibrating maybe?
Actualy I just hooked up the d3 550 3.5 to another gt 2.0 and it worked perfect, as well as the orignal gt 2.0 I was having problems with works fine with the 550 can motors, but the tekin not so much kicks out right away on both.

If anyone else tries these settings they will probably blow up.

It's just his asian fingers that seem to do all the winning

That is quite extreme - to say the least. It will probably blow the motor for most people.
