The light is normal on the stock club esc. What is said in the manual only apply to other Reventon model.

Cool, thanks. Seemed to be working fine, just didn't want to mess something up. I'm really digging this and may just have to get the reventon pro for my 2wd buggy that I may end up with.

I'm getting the same kind of response you are. I've been trying to contact Speed Passion since 1/15/2013; exactly 3 days after I bought my ESC direct from them. My situation is probably something in the line of programming or a very simple fix. As for now, I just have a expensive paperweight.

Fortunately, you havn't sent it to them yet. Not that still having it matters much if it doesn't work properly.

*edit*

Actually just got a PM response today. I won't praise until I receive a package but at this point it seems they are making a honest effort to fix what has become the bigger issue. I can appreciate that.

PM me with some details and I can try and assist you if this has not been solved yet.

I'm not sure who was PMd, but I have not received anything from you. If you are still having issues I can help resolve things.

SP Tech: Does the 1-800 number work as far as a way to actually speak with someone or not? I think that would help a lot of people know what is going on.

Sp tech- I got a response yesterday telling me another attempt was going to be made to get an ESC to me. Apparently it got lost in the mail. This has been somewhat frustrating, but it seems those involved at SP are making a standup effort to right things. We'll see when I get something. Thanks for responding.

Make sure and get a tracking number and the method they are shipping it.

I wasn't given a tracking number, but according to the website they always ship USPS. That's problem #1 honestly. Affordable, but not reliable. I'm trying very hard to give benefit of the doubt here. I've enjoyed SP products for the 2 years I've been racing. It's unfortunate that the first time I needed customer service has been a flop. They've made a nice gesture, so I'll just have to be patient for it to arrive.

haven't really had an issue with the USPS, its the only way I ship personally.

Regardless of what method, I still say request a tracking number.

I checked my RMA status on the website and it's finally been updated. Tracking number is there as well via Priority Mail. That's good, because 1st class is notorious for losing stuff. I've had it happen to me a couple times. Never with Priority though.

Looking for a new esc (been running hobbywing esc`s for the last 4 years)
want to try something new

the reventon pro has some nice features looking at the specs, but one thing that makes me wonder is that why does all the factory drivers still drive the old gt2? looking at pics from ets, eos, reedy etc

what is it with the esc that makes the drivers choose the old hobbywing made esc over the new ztw made esc?

i`m currently racing in 17.5 boosted stock, will try some modified racing too.
