If you are happy with the performance... it's perfect!
You could probably go up a tooth on your pinion as 130-140 is very safe.

What do you mean 13.5 firmware? Are you running boosted or Blinky?

Stock1 is the software that you want to use...

And I see there are at least 2 setup sheets for 13.5 boost setting....look at the below link and click 1/10th touring stock class

I think you may be confusing the Hybrid firmware with the more common and current V20 release.
Controller version V1.1.0.22 is what is shown as the latest release on the website. From January 2013.
Use Stock1 for your speedo and you should be good to go.

I just wanted to let you know the Speed Passion MMM motor series and Reventon S speed controls are a wicked setup for F1 racing. Over the weekend I managed to lay down the fastest laps against other competitors who were using expensive speed controls/motor setups. The power transfer from the MMM motor to the wheels was consistent and smooth, as many of you know these are important elements for F1 racing. If your looking for smooth acceleration coming out through the corners and mad rip down the straight stretches you cant beat SP MMM motors and SP speed controls. Regardless of what Speed Passion speed control and MMM motor you get, you know its going to be the best.

Thanks SP!

hi guys, i just got my hands on the reventon r and been testing it on the track but getting some problem with it. Currently the esc is running on stock1 v19.

Problem is the esc will suddenly run without boost in a middle of a run. i have to do a full stop or sometimes turn off and on the esc to get the boost to working again.
i also get 2 lights blinking on the esc after the run.

Hope the experts can help.
Thanks

hi are you running lipo cut off or overheat protection, check next time it happens if the esc and motor are cool or not close to over heating also that the lipos are above 7.9volt turn them both off its the only bug with the esc and also download the new pc software as you should be running stock1 v20

hope it helps

Hi thanks for the reply,
I turn off both overheat protection and voltage cut off when I tested.
Motor n esc came of 50degC when temp immediately after the run.
Is there another update for the reventon R? Cause last I check it was only v19 stock1 the rest of the profile was able to update to v20

Thanks again

2 lights blinking is mean the sensor wire connection have some problem. Therefore, the ESC will no boost. Maybe the sensor wire has a bad contact. Change the other sensor wire and then try again.

Could you update the ESC firmware again?

I did swap to a new sensor wire but it did not help. The thing is this problem is intermittent, it starts fine then in the middle of a run i don't get the boost anymore as though it went to blinky I have to go to a full stop or even on n off again then it works again.
