By the way, has anyone tried the 12.8mm rotor? curious if it could benefit in tight track situations for say touring over the 12.5mm?
Not legal in stock...Stock racing is 12.5mm MAX and smaller...unless your track don't care.

First Howard get the Barbie remote control car so they want to play with your toy cars so you can bump that to once a month.

According to my math. You raced at the Nats, you ran this weekend. Carry the 2 ok see you early December at the track.

Btw Howard locked and loaded you say when I press ok for Esc order.

I can only say this...when I was testing boost mod with 4T motor 2 days ago, at one point, I was passing the 1/8th on road nitro on the straight..passing it. I would guess I was running around 70+ mph at that point....

But of course, after that straight pass...I blew the rear diff, then stripped the rear belt twice, and totaled the car because I lost brake....

I already saw the new hobbywing V3 run in our local track and its faster than the orion, lrp and nosram esc's. Can the reventon pro match the power of this new esc's?

Thank you in advance!

I think the GT 2.0 Pro's boost program has more power than the V3 personally. So with the Reventon being strong, faster, cooler. I would assume yes but I will let Solara jump in on that for sure cause I know that the Reventon is blowing up tires bench testing which is pretty darn powerful to do so.

thank you for your reply NolanP. I guess the pro will be faster than the other esc's.

We'll wait for Solara's answer regarding this.

Fellas..having issues with PC interface. Got the Reventon Pro installed, but cant get it to link with PC or update the LCD card. I installed latest 17 software to laptop. Installed drivers and inerface. I can get LCD to go into firmwre update mode by holding reset and plug into pc. Pull up interface and no button for "firmware update" button. I can't get speedo to link either. The lights red & orange leds come on, but nothing. I tried diff usb cords..nothing. Tried several install/uninstall. I have Windows 7..even tried to run as administrator. LCD works fiine by itself and on speedo. It says version 2.0 with 16 mod1 on speedo.
What am I doing wrong?

Hey,
You haven't installed and ran the driver properly.Thats all.
Go to www.speedpassion.net,checkout the Reventon pro YouTube video,and all will be good.
You have to also update the firmware on the LCD card separately as well,which is also explained in the vid.
This esc is seriously quick!Well done guys!
Tim

The boost/Turbo profiles have not been released from Speed Passion yet for 13.5, only the Mod boost profiles have been released. They should be only a matter of weeks away though. Not to long to wait now.
