The reason why 17.5 are out is...(1) Special material like the ROTOR raised 3X the price since last year. (2) Beside USA, alot of other country are adapting 17.5 as a stock or slower class and this class is heavily popular and demand are high. (3) MFR are way behind their schedule that is totally out of our control.



Only in NORWAY? LOL...QC is always a concern especailly we are talking about ESC that if used heavily, it will burn. But I believe those are individual cases, that happened to any ESC and any one. We are continuously updating the software and hardware and keep making sure the REVENTON ESC that coming in USA are up to the standard, at least, my standard. The past 3 months I have turned over at least 4 different version of REVENTON and that is the reason why there is a delay. If they are not up to my standard, I won't let it run in USA.

We are mainly concentrated on the ZERO TIMING software and hardware of the ESC and I have to make sure ROAR is align with us (they are very close to be approved) but over in Europe they are mainly run on MOD and BOOST application which it is alot easier to get the ESC fried...
I thought it was ironic also... besides what conditions are they running it under? Probably deliberately into the ground to see what it can handle. I prefer to ask you (who has always been honest, and attack questions head on.) That is the reason I will continue to support SpeedPassion. Your customer service is light years above the rest.

I had no clue about the motors. Can we expect a price increase due to your increased cost? If so, How much can we expect?

No...not a dime more on price. But, in order to keep the price the same, we have to come up with a higher amount of orders, when we placed the high amount of orders, it take time to get it fabricated. I am doing my best to fight for the quantities of the MMM motor against other countries like Europe and Japan, but I am going my best to bring them in...

GT2 pro can run 2.5T if you are not running boost.

prostock you're only supposed to run up to a 5.5t (non-boosted).

right? Does the HobbyWing 2in1 LCD program box work also?
Thanks.
I bought the Hobbywing Program Box. Which software do I download for blinky? I don't see anything that says 508 on the SP site.

You would need the GT 2.0 Pro (120A).

I found some 17.5r MMMs on Amainhobbies...

Solara, I was wondering, the ceramic bearings are sold in single pieces, but doesnt the motor take 2? Is there a reason they are sold in single parts?

Also any rotor avail for the 17.5r MMM? I need more powah!

You buy that motor ASAP....we don't even have any.

If we sell the bearing in pair, we will charge you double...LOL

We are selling it in single package because we can sell them for those who need just 1 for replacement....if you need 2, just buy 2 package. No specific reason why you just need 1 instead of 2...you will need 2.

For ROTOR...only if you have a big track, try the SUPER 7 silver purple rotor, that is the ONLY optional rotor that I will use beside the stock MMM 17.5 black purple.

true...As far as the power goes, is it more punch, or overall?

Also I am assuming the MMM comes with a stainless bearing and that is why you sell the ceramic, (as an upgrade.) or are the ceramic just a replacement?

Ceramic are optional bearing...stock bearings on the motor are not ceramic.
