Thank you Solara, I totally agree that I think it's a minor software problem.

I'm going to be dropping my system off with a friend who has had no issues swapping programs and he's going to be taking a look (him and Dan are my dealers for SP).

I do not think that this a problem with the ESC what-so-ever, the ESC perfroms great, just a minor lil glitch that I seem to have found somehow.

Thank you for the support and great customer service i've received from speed passion during this.

Yes, and actually, I like the heavier DRAG of the 12.5mm rotor then anything else...however, not really that much of a different on 2cell powered TC...but we are still trying to find more on the 12.5mm rotor.

The TQ (by less than half a second) was running the +20 board at minimum with a 103mm roll out. He tried to gear down a bit for heat 2 but turned up the timing to much and ran it past 200 degress. It smelled funny but once it was cool ran the exact same as it did in the first heat during the main. Overall, great motors and like I said, I wish I had more.
The MMM will only be better...........not less.

Yes, DAN from South Cal already contacted me and I am more then happy to take care the SCRC forum.........but overall, this does not happen to my PRO ESC that are all pre-production units and I have about 25 different software to swap around since the development of the PRO software. But, I am sure that is something we can get that take care of....

Thanks. punch on these tight tracks is definitely a plus. Will have to give those a look too. Found a 1 cell 17.5 so should be set there.

My buddy though has the MMM, will see how that goes in comparison.

I'm liking the MMM motor with 25 degrees of timing for 17.5 12th scale blinky racing. It has good punch and lap times are good from start to finish of the race. Without alot of fall off. 1 cell motor seems to like more timing.

I wish I had more time before IIC, anyone have any real life data for roll out and timing on a 17.5 MMM for 12th scale? I'd entertain ideas for the 1 cell also but the fact is I've been happiest at the local track with lower timing and roll out. I'll be running a new car (CRC XTi) at the race anyways, might as well change up the motors as well.

For 12th scale MMM 25 degrees of timing. Rollout of 93 to 94.5 works best for me. The 1 cell motor 30 degrees of timing and the same rollout. I felt the MMM motor had better all around power for the complete run.

Any idea for a MMM 13.5 or is it best to wait for different software?

alright, here is my new dilemma.

For offroad I am planning to just use the two Speed Passion GT2.0 Pros, but for onroad, trying to decide what to go with.

I am right now looking at the following:

1/12 Stock Blinky: GT2.1 Pro Stock, GT2.0 LPF,
1/10 Touring Blinky: GT2.1 Pro Stock, GT2.0 LPF, Revention R

I know this overkill, but I do rotate electronics at times so I need stuff to be versatile and the only thing where "stock" is done is indoors in the winter.

For 1/12, am I correct in assuming that the GT2.1 Pro Stock and the GT2.0 LPF can use the TQ Booster without issues?

For touring on 17.5 motor, I wouldn't mind trying the revention but the whole BEC thing has me concerned as I don't want to go through the whole MMP with needed a capacitor etc. I don't run spektrum gear or savox servos, Futaba stuff with either JR servo 9100S or an airtronics 94357.

Lastly, am I correct in assuming there are no issues as far as fitment, etc with using the 12.5mm rotors in the V3.0 series of motors, regular and 1 Cell? (sorry, I know this sounds dumb, but I don't want to order something and essentially have a paperweight)

Couple more weeks....the current software is only good for 4.5 to 9.5 motor.

low turn motor use high hybrid boost active percentage and hybrid boost maximum k value....high turn motor use low high hybrid boost active percentage and hybrid boost maximum k value....but I am still testing it on 13.5 and 17.5 now, will update everyone here soon.

Next version of the boost software will support 13.5...not this one.
