Mine works fine under Windows 7. Updating the card on with version 17 gives me one choice, v1.3. After installing this, the programmer shows the same issue as before in the fact that the display no longer works. It connects to the ESC through the computer fine though and setting the ESC/updating the program is seemless.

Darn I wanted to try out the 4.5 but I left it at home
So far the 7.5 and 10.5 are very fast temps are staying under 140 . Software is very easy to use and tune very smooth also.

Go to speedpassion,download the interface/ program.
Get hold of another pc/ laptop/phone or whatever and follow that video to the letter.
Then at the end you update the LCD programmer by holding in the reset button AND plugging into USB port.
It will then say on the programmer " UPDATE FIRMWARE"...click "yes".
It will take approx 4-5 minutes.
And yes I'm running windows for this process.
If it doesn't work,we will have to organise a Skype conversation so I can show you how to do it.
Or I'll fly over...LOL
Good luck,let me know how you go.

Wipe that pc first!!!!!

After running the reventon pro in the Florida heat I added a sp fan on the side of the esc it dropped the heat temps by almost 20 degrees

Well done Marcos,please let us all know what you think of the boost in relation to the length of the track.
This esc is going to be the best!

The track was about 135 feet maybe a little longer , never ran out of power, I started with solara's settings that are on the instructions. The only thing different I changed the startup rpm's for the 10.5 do it could kick in a little early. Boost I left at 90% for both motors , didn't feel the need to try 100% boost lol.

The 10.5 felt like a strong 5.5 motor

I tried the 17.5 MMM at a 95 rollout with stock timing and the car felt flat. Dropped it closer to what I run my 1 cell at and it woke up on the infield without losing any speed on the straight. I didn't get a chance to play with timing but likely will during the IIC practice. My question is, what difference will I notice with more timing. Will I get more punch or more speed if I leave the gearing the same. Motor temp was only 120 with the 95 rollout and 106 at the lower. The 1 Cell generally comes off at around 98ish. In case anyone is wondering, the lower roll out was 2 tenths faster each lap overall.

I'd say from outside us, not going to happen. And to be honest not a good chance at all even from the us warehouse.. I usually get my orders from us site in about 6-8 days or more... They take a day or two to process your order and then off to shipping...

i've gotten shipments from EMS (rcmart.com order) to Canada in 4 days too, fast shipping .. if you can find what you need in HK and need it quick and are willing to pay the $$, you should get it in time ..
