Default Ahhh !!!!! wrong polarity.

Just got some new batteries, they have the polarity of there tubes on opposite sides to the battery I was using. I didn't notice when I went to hook my speedy up. Sparked so I instanly pulled it away. I hooked up my original battery but the capacitors smoked up big time. Please Please tell me I've only fried the capacitors and not the speedy.

Funny enough (well not that funny!) I did the same thing yesterday. I put another capacitor on from my other SP GT2.0 and used it for the rest of the day no problems. So hopefully yours is the same.

That is refreshing to know, I hope I do have the same luck.

Reading the Speed Passion site it says that the Stock 1 setting is not available yet - I assume this will be for boosted 10.5 etc?

Is the Revention R being used for 10.5 touring car and if so what settings are people using?

I believe there is only blinky software for the Reventon right now, as they are still testing the boosted software.

I got the card, programed my esc then ran it for the first run. After about 3 minutes the throttle died. There is no over heat protection on in the settings and the battery voltage was still high. I waited tried again and still no throttle. So I tried resetting my throttle and after holding the set button on the switch it never goes into the set mode. Any Idea of what is wrong and why it will not go into the throttle range calibration?

Default Speed Passion 17.5

Im running blinky mode on my on road car, with a 17.5 speed Passion V3 motor. I would like to know witch sensor unit would be best for blinky mode to give power, and acelaration, and keep motor cool. I realize I'll have to have a fan on motor.

The yellow +30* timing board seems to be the most popular for 17.5 blinky.

Thank you.
Capacitor came with the ESC...and the sensor cable also came with the MOTOR...however, if you are running F104X1, you will need a longer one like the 180mm....the sensor cable that came with the motor is the 90mm one that usually is short enough for TC...but F1 need a long one. You will need this...
