64P is more for indoor track which you don't have much rock and stuff that would jam into the gear...but if your track is NOT carpet, even it is indoor, I would recommand using 48P.

Most ppl beside USA were using 48P because they run MOD and outdoor...48P gives you a better chance NOT to have little rock to jam into the bigger pitch.

US use 64P cause they vacuum the carpet (afterall, it is carpet LOL) and they want the best acceleration of the car, thats why they use 64P for a tad of more "punch". And yes, 64P gives you a finer gearing ratio compare to 48P but if you want concern about performance gain, there are NONE or at least, you cannot tell the different.

With 17.5, GT2 speedo...make sure get the 312a software, DRRS to #8, Timing to #7, motor timing to 10*, then gear to around 4.8~5.0. At least, I would start it that way....

Adam, appologies if you have answered this before (I did look around first). I'm running the GT 2.0 in my XXXT-CR with a 17.5 brushless. What software version do you recommend for this off-road application? Thanks. BTW the software it came with is doing great, but if it can do better....

Usually motors or escs have some guidance but that is based on certain tracks they have in mind. I know that they don;t apply on ours tracks

I don't know. I've had it for about 6 months, it's the Carbon Black edition and the manual that came with it is dated Jan 22 2009.

I wouldn't worry about it, I can happily move my timing rings by hand, without needing to undo the screws. It's why the silicone is there, as the two pads don't slide over each other without a little bit of force. Quite clever imo
If your really worrid about it, I see SP do offer a +10 locked end plate, and given thats where I'm running my motors, I'm quite tempted.

im just worried that if somebody bumps me the timing will move. will consider the locked plate as a remedy. the silicons don't help either since moving will not require any force as when it was new. don't know what caused this to happen either.

If you get hit hard enough on your motor to move your timing you have A LOT more to worry about!

Oh yeah, to actually answer your question the 205G is a GREAT s/w for offroad, I think for right now you are already running one of the best out there
