FYI this is the fastest esc on the market and the best software that's only getting better.
So in other words,nobody needs un-educated opinions or people who don't want to contribute to a great forum.
Some of us are. My Rev Pro's setup button doesnt turn off or setup after v19 now. The thing is only 30 days old. Just waiting on sptech or other sp guy to respond.

I am really starting to wonder about this company.
I placed an order from the US site on the 23rd.
Did not receive a shipping confirmation so I emailed them on the 27th.
They sent me the tracking # and said most orders ship in 24-48 hrs.
It is now the 30th and still does not show that it shipped
I wanted it for this weekends racing. Not cool.

Yeah, same here. My order was the 24th. Had to email them to get the tracking# but the tracking doesnt show they sent it yet. Just that the post office received receipt. but again it does say 10 buisness days

Try this...

When the ESC is on and your radio is at neutral are you seeing any blinking Or steady light? Please let me know. This will help me know if it is running sensored, sensorless, or some type of overheating.

Most likely it should be red or red/orange steady ON.

Please PM or post what you see.

Although most associate Align with helicopters this servo is very good for on and offroad applications. Many servos:receiver combinations these days require a capacitor pluged into the ESC. This is regardless of brand. Spektrum sells a capacitor with the direct wiring and plug to use with your receiver.

After a bit of help

My GT2.0 stopped working on saturday , it was fitted to my WGT with a thunder power 17.5 motor

It lost speed on the track and i came back and the speedo and motor were cool , it feels like there is no turbo and boost , it was perfect for most of the daty , swapped out the sensor cable and motor ,

Eventually i sinned and fitted my old Tekin and everything was working .

Anyone seen this problem before ???

Thanks Phil
Was the sensor board also replaced?

Iam starting to wonder about the mentality of some people.
You should be PMing this to the appropriate people,maybe should have thought about ordering this esc earlier so you understand and test settings etc.,and isn't half the US been under a hurricane alert for the past week?.....yeah good idea to order when you did.
It's an esc.Grow up champ.

Timbo99, having read thro a number of your posts on here you offer decent help/advice. But other times you become what you say others should not!!

Is only informing us of his situation, and the lack of response to his e-mail/order.
I would guess that ordering when he did; it would have left the North East area (if that’s where it was coming from) before the hurricane hit land. We can only hope that what is posted on company web sites are true and correct, that being the case then he may have received it in time.

“PMing this to the appropriate people”

Been there, tried it. Still waiting for an answer.
I got my order in a short time, however they sent out the wrong card. Hence still waiting for a reply to my e-mail to the “appropriate” people!!

Are these people non speed passion employees or affiliated? Using the ‘SP’ to give an impression of authoritative grandeur?

Solara is the only guy I know to be genuine.

A few pages back Solara mentions that SP Tech and SP Tech 1 are representatives of Speed Passion and can help. Please remember this forum and Speed Passion (or whatever company for that matter) are giving a courtesy by even posting on here. Many companies, RC or non RC, will not use public forums in a official capacity.

For anything order related or trying to reach Speed Passion directly I would only use email accounts and phone numbers listed on their website. That being said I realize you are having some issues still.

The vocal majority will always be just that on a public forum.

Actually I'm lost now and don't even remember what the original issue is/was LOL :P

Well, good for them....but I really want to know, reading the highest RPM and that will tell me what..? I have a motor checker as well, when running stock1 software and setting the full boost, my 17.5 was 1 time reading 92,000 + rpm...that is faster then a real race car. But that is just a number and I can only say "COOL"....and that number is actually, meaningless.

I think what i really want to add on the feature is the recording of the highest temp of the ESC...thats it.

Give me your order #...what was ordered within this order and I will start going to the backend and find out what is going on. I am sure these order are already out but I will do it personally and find out.

Give me what I need to know and I shall provide answer.....

Thanks everyone here trying to help....it is MY FAULT, I am a American Chinese so it is 50% my fault already...

So according to the orange light being solid the ESC is reading your motor as sensorless. You are running a Revention Pro w/ a 17.5T and a sensor cable correct?
