You need a SP LCD programming card, USB cable, latest software, a computer, and watch this video

Hey I just got a Cirtix Stock Club race + Ultra sportsman 17.5T V3.0 Combo and I don't see anything that talks about setting the low voltage cut off for 2s? Can I set it? Will the voltage cut off by itself? Or will my TC5 go up in flames?

Sure can, I've never used a disk. Might even have to go download for the latest deal.

Look under the download tab just above the picture:

Hi solara,
I was trying to get a good set up with the gt2 lpf and 21.5 reedy motor but just had no success. Tried pretty much everything. But I did notice that things got worse when I turned the timing acc down lower. I know this setting changes how fast the boost is applied, but does this setting also shorter or lengthen the rev range ?
Could you recommend any settings for a mid to large outdoor asphault track with a long straight and a few tight and a few flowing corners?
And in the manual it says to never exceed 64 degrees of timing with the boost and turbo, but does this include motor can timing? Say if I had 30 boost 24 turbo and 10 degrees on the motor , would that be TOO much timing all together ?
Thanks

Hi I got a MMM stock motor. How much ESC boost + turbo timing can it take? Motor endbell timing left at factory default. I am running 5.92 FDR and boost at 40 deg and turbo at 20.
Temp is only high 30s celcius

Hi all. I run a 2.0 LPF with 10.5 motor geared at ~5.7 with no fan on the esc. Motor stays cool, but the esc gets warm to the touch, not hot. Is it ok to keep running the esc without a fan?

The Timing ACC dictates how quickly the boost timing is applied. It is 1 degree for every XXX RPM. So for instance, if you have 40 degrees of boost timing, 5,000 start RPM, and a 500 timing ACC, the timing will start adding 1 degree every 500 RPM starting at 5,000 RPM. So you'd have all 40 degrees of timing by 25,000 RPM (40 * 500 + 5,000).

The timing ACC does not limit the top RPM of the motor at all, it only dictates how fast the timing gets added. It can have a huge affect on the mid range and even low range power of the motor. However, going too low on the setting can easily bog the motor and create a lot of heat.

64* of timing is the max the ESC can apply, and it does not include motor endbell timing. It is common to use over 64* of timing total when you include the motor timing, especially in stock classes.

You can easily add the max 64* from the ESC, plus some endbell timing on the motor. Your ESC settings and gearing will be important to not blow up the motor. Go to Speed Passion's USA web site and look at the team setups for TJ Lathrop and Robert Cooper for some good boosted 17.5 MMM setups.

It really depends on how hot "warm" is to you. Check it with a temp gun. It's best to run the fan if you are in doubt.

We have tried all the options Mod and the stock with the SP USB program card and a Win7 PC. It still doesn't have the additional options. I will post a pic soon as I can.

And when the Stock1 and Mod1 profiles will be available too.

Also I saw word of some new 4x4 short course motors a few pages back. What's the go there? Very keen to see.

Can someone with knowledge or first hand experience, tell me if this setup will be ok, or likely to end in tears! , And reason why. Thanks.
1/10th, V2.1 GT prostock, 8T sensored 4000kv motor, 3s 5000mah 40c lipo, 8.1FDR on-road, was planning on leaving the stock firmware on but limiting boost/turbo to 5 points each. I could change to Mod firmware if recommended (I cant think of a reason why if settings are kept mild? - Maybe someone has insight?) . If I keep a close eye on temps will I be OK?

Fail ! if you read the speedpassion site, the speedy you mention handles only from 9.5T on 2S (this is what is recomended). 8T with 3S ? what are you running ?

Thanks for the reply, checked site & downloaded a manual also. Found that the lowest turn motor for use with the GT2.1 prostock ESC on 3S is 9.5T, but using a motor less than 10.5T with stock software will damage the motor.
I have been using the 8.5T(sensored) motor on 3S with a 60A hobbywing non-sensored ESC, without problem so far (about 90 mins total runtime), so thought a 120A Sensored ESC would be a much better match, (but I dont know how the software works between the 2 of them).

The odd configuration is due to having no track(we use a marked out carpark), club or rules in my location, we just make do with what we have, I guess I was hoping that someone else has used the 8.5T with the prostock speedy with success, but knew it was a long shot!
