Default Warning on Support and Service

I wanted to share with everyone my experience with Speed Passion USA. I have placed an order and recieved it a week later being in the US paying 14.00 for shipping which is strangly expensive. That aside, I recieved the bodies and the graphic stickers were all stuck together making them not usable. I called their support number was on the line for 1 hour hitting 0 over and over again, no one aswers. I sent them and email and a week later still no reply. Really awful service and support.

Be warned!

Hi all,

I'm about to buy a SP reventon Pro. Is there anything I should know or buy before I push the button.

Cheers

Tom

I wouldn't say theres anything. I love my Reventon Pro with 13.5 MMM motor and would say go for it!

Just update the ESC and LCD card when you get it with the latest firmware from the SP website. Depending what motor you are running, check this forum as you may need to cut the temp wire on your sensor lead as some motors seem to cause problems with the ESC due to the temp sensor in the motor. After smashing my PB lately running SP ESC and motor I would say it's best to run any manufacturers motor with their ESC.

I installed it all into my xray t3, I turned everything on and and try to calibration. i only getting steering but no Throttle, I also updated the LCD software from 2.4 to V2.7 and then try to connect the esc to my pc, while going to update to stock1 it stop, i try to connect to the pc again n it not connecting.....

Now my computer does not connect to my ESC (windows 7) and my lcd card is not connecting to the esc

I waited a whole week to get this esc and cant even get it hook up. I live in barbados n we dont have a hobby shop over here so we mainly order from amainhobbies

hi when they fail to update i think u need to use the pc software and when it asked if you want to connect to esc say no and it should let you update the firmware again it happened to me and while the firmware update leave the pc alone

hope this helps

I placed an order and the package was missing an item. I sent an email and after a few weeks have heard nothing back. The order number is Order No. 6492, can someone at speed passion look into this before I start telling everyone in my local community to stay far away from this company?

Just picked up a reventon club stock and v3 17.5 motor running it in a durango dex210 it's amazing gearing is a 69 spur and 31 pinion and I am running door to door with my brother inlaw who has a hacker system. The v3 17.5 has a fixed 10 degrees of timing and he has 37 degrees off timing with the same gear ratio and we are running exactly the same. I am very impressed with speed passion awesome power plant. If your on the fence don't be I was but thought for the price I am gonna try it and have to say I'm glad I did!!!!!
