Unintall/Delete all the current Speed Passion software from your computer and start from scratch.

Reventon Programming cards (the blue one) will not work on the Non-Reventon ESCs.

Also, if you are running SAVOX servo with that...good luck, please get a glitch buster and hope that will solve the problem.

I have Sanwa, still not working correctly...

#3....any kinda of shut down or weird acting....please UPDATE the software of the ESC. We just released the 1.1.0-V20 firmware, and the recommended software to use are the following.....

Software updated, not working correctly...

#5....after loading the software, please do try it with NO LIPO CUTOFF and report any unexpected shut down. I have been to at least 3 weekend of racing and tech supporting on site for at least 20-30 REVENTON user and I have not hear/seen a power shut down issue...I believed the lastest software already took care of that. And I believed only a few were running without lipo cutoff...most of them are set to 3.4V/cell....if there are no more unexpected shutdown issue, you can turn it back on to 3.4V or lower.

No lipo cut, still shutting down. But it don't shut down if I try to...

Two Reventon Pros in our club with same problems. 1/10 Pro stock class (10.5 GM brushless, non timing.
Please contact your local SPEED PASSION dealer for direct replacement...I wish I can get a hold of them to see it myself.

On the wont turn off or calibrate..... I'm not using Skectrum nor have.. I run Airtronics MT4 and KO Propo servo.
When your radio and car are on IDLE.....the red and yellow light on the ESC must be ON in order to able to TURN OFF.............the reason is, while the car is in motion...even the motor is spinning 5 rpm (usually, the car will not move at all)...but the red light is OFF...the software will DISABLED the switch off function to prevent any unexpected shut down during the race...

If your ESC cannot shut off.....please check and see the RED LIGHT on the ESC is on or not......IF there are no RED light, that means, your NEUTRAL POINT of the ESC is off........check your radio. WHen you calibrate it the 1st time with the radio, the ESC will register the idle/neutral point...but if your radio was set THROTTLE trim like forwarded by 5%...that will throw off the neutral point and the red light will be off....hint the shut off is disabled. Because the ESC is thinking you are in motion....RACING that is.

I have a quick solution...I usually PUSH the brake (throttle forward) and usually the RED light will be turn on.....THEN you can switch off the ESC.

This happened to SP TECH when he like to have the car ROLL (instead of neutral)...so he set his throttle trim to forward by like 25-30% so the car will have the rolling start.........but the down side is, it will not allow you to turn off the ESC because the ESC is thinking you are still racing. My quick fix to him is have him to PUSH forward on the radio's trigger (BRAKING) and made the red light to turn on...THEN you can able to turn off the ESC.

Give that a try...and I hope that is the reason.

Can that be a WINDOW PROBLEM....I think you guys should uninstall the software 1st....then 2nd, go to the program directory and make sure SPEED PASSION folder is erased...........then re-install a clean downloaded V20 software again.

Make sure the USB driver are installed and the LCD card MUST BE UPDATED to the version 2.5

Would be nice to have some more brakes. With an X12 7.5T the speedo is not getting above 65 degrees so I'm sure it could cope with some more braking power

That is EXACTLY what MOD2 does....Jorn Neumann personally help setup that software to the way exactly what he like....but only for REVENTON PRO. I am wondering that might be the reason why it works only on 140A esc but not the 70A.....

He was using that software on the indoor carpet track and it actually tear up the carpet at couple areas....(that he ended up helping to patching the carpet after the testing..)
