For running mod 2wd buggy with nothing faster than a 7.5 motor, should I hold out for the Reventon (and, if so, which model) or just go with the GT2.0PRO?

I don't know but I was conned into trying a GT2.0 by Kochanski and I do like it more than my RS Pro. It's had no issues running a full pack out with an 8.5 motor and it's very smooth so unless the Reventon brings something to the tuning side that you think you need I'd say GT2.0 would do fine in a 2wd buggy.

You have to get the GT2 PRO now....REVENTON PRO is still in testing and you won't see that after the WC or even longer. GT2 PRO is one of the BEST ESC in the market for the last 3 years, period....you won't be disappointed.

Tell that SLOWchanski or Nochanski he need to step up and win some major race, or I will have to race off road and replace him...LOL

Kochanski setup are very much dialed for 2WD and wheeler......he has nothing buy good thing to say about the GT2 PRO. We only let his car do the talking...but he talks alot himself too...LOL

I'll remind him. But, he's been helpful with questions about the speed passion stuff and anything else I need so I'm not sure I want to give him too hard of a time.

Default GT 2.0 Repair?

Has anyone had any experience with getting a GT 2.0 repaired? I accidentally plugged into the slots for the fan, as soon as the battery was plugged in the speedo went up in smoke. Is repair an option or should I just look into a new speedo? I tried e-maileing Speedpassion directly but no response. Thanks in advance!

No problems with any of mine. Actually that is all I have except for 1 mmm.
17.5s; 13.5s, 10.5 & 7.5.
All run smooth, low heat, great rpm! Lighter weight too, great for pan cars!
The MMM does feels stronger in low end torque though. I like it in my 17.5 tc.

Default Cirtix help.

Hey all.

There is a guy at my club who has just purchased a new Cirtix esc and Ultra sportsman 17.5 motor and he cant get it to run. It shows a solid orange light and flashing red which says in the manual that its in sensorless mode. I have tried 3 different motors (2 of which are my own which are perfectly fine running in my cars) and 3 different sensor leads too.I have tried resetting the esc and rebinding it, all the usual stuff but no luck so far. I just cant seem to get the esc out of sensorless mode. Any help is appreciated.
