New car arriving in a couple weeks (currently on backorder). Would love to put a Reventon in it. What are the chances it will be released in time? Otherwise I guess I can try one next summer.

I recommend to use GT series ESC for now.

What would a starting FDR be for the SP V3.0 17.5 in TC blinky class, also what timing says 0--- +10. Small 24x60 track. I have the cirtix club esc and a TC3. I curently ran the ultra sportsman v2 17.5 at 4.3 with decent speed and temp, How much better should this motor be than the ultra sportsman. Will the v3.0 compare to a revtech motor?

I am sorry, they are still working on the program. No release time schedule.

V3 COMP is a Pro Racing motor...it is better then your V2 ultra sportsman motor for sure. You should pick up the optional timing ring and increase the timing to 30* instead of only 10*...you are 20* of timing too slow.

See the link below for the optional sensor board...then turn it to all the way right (max @ 30*) and keep your gearing the same as 4.2. (or actually higher like 4.4 because your track is pretty small)

You will see your car is a mile faster and more punch with the V3 Comp...

Thanks
(1) set 100% on brake
(2) set 100% on REVERSE FORCE

it should have enough brakes after these setting were done.

Thank you for the information on the V3.0 17.5 i will run it like it is now to get used to it, then look to the optional timing sensor down the road for more speed and power. Speed Passion is my first company for brushless stuff. I like not running what every else runs and still be copetitive. I have bought all my stuff used, i haven't had a problem with anything, ESC issues or lack of performance Thanks to Speed Passion for providing something DIFFERENT.

I know kinda dumb question, but does the fan for the gt 2.0 esc orient so the air is pushed down toward the heat sink or up to pull hot air away from the esc? I was thinking the air should blow down on the esc, but then the fan is exposed for potential damage (dirt, small rocks, etc)

I have a cirtix stock club race that is acting up. It has been sitting in my TC without a motor hooked to it for a few months. I soldered on a motor and tried to calibrate it and it is not working. I can go through the calibration but when trying to run the motor if I do not spin the motor first by hand nothing happens. I have tried two different motors that both work with my other Cirtix stock club race ESC??
