not possible because i live in germany But another guy at my track bought the same combo with a 4.5R. Maybe it's too fast for him and i can use the rotor in my 8.5R. If they don't use different magnet sizes to have the biggest possible magnet-volume specialised for every stator, the rotor could fit.

If EPIC/Trinity rotors are available they should also fit your motor.

Update -

I bought a Speed Passion Reventon LED program card and couldn't get it to install on either my laptop or my son's new laptop. The hobby shop where I bought it gave me help, but after many, many......many attempts at doing the same as I had originally done, it finally installed. I started the Reventon software and the only icon on the screen was to update the firmware, which I did. I connected the program box to my ESC and it only showed forward/brake - no reverse. I'm also not able to download any other profiles. I believe the Reventon S is actually a Stock Race model as I cannot add other functions such as boost, turbo etc. The card doesn't give me the functions which the website says it will either.

I have contacted RCMart and Speed Passion and guess what ?....neither have responded.

I don't know what problem Speed Passion have with RCMart, but they are selling Speed Passion product so they are responsible for their own product, whether they like it or not. If it's not genuine, then they need to deal with it.

So come on Speed Passion help network on this thread - where are you ? You have a problem here. You have a lot of dis-satisfied customers. I feel completely duped. Your website is so contradictory and full of duff information.

I want a refund as I've been miss-sold a product which is useless to me.

Just curious.....how did you bend the motor shaft?
the super 7 rotors are more expensive than the regular ones but one might find one on ebay or in the for sale forum here. I managed to get 6 tuning rotors for my Reedy Sonic for $50 + shipping from a guy.
Can't beat that with a stick...

What country do you live in? If you're info is correct it looks like the UK? Have you contacted Schumacher? I believe they are the importer/distributor for SP in the UK. Perhaps RCMart is shipping items into the UK from HK around the official distributor?

Would you mind connect the ESC to PC again, then capture the screen of Reventon PC program?

Can you post what your current settings are on the ESC?

A refund would have to come through where you bought the product, RCMart. If you are having setup problems or installation issues maybe contact Schumacher and or Tonisport http://www.fast-webshop.com/tonispor...CT-INFORMATION

I have a question for the smart guys lol. I have a gt2.0 wired to a d3.5 trinity 17.5 and it runs hot and fast (good thing) and then I have a gt2.1 hooked up to a d3.5 Trinity17.5 (same motors) and it just not want to get into the high end like the gt2.0. Is this normal? I've tried re setting and re calibrating it but still no changes. Runs smooth and cool no issues or glitches but just not the same power. I've tried 2 different motors and 3 different rotors to no diffrence. Any help?

The only reason I went with RCMart was because the shipping to Canada was only $9, if I ordered it from SP USA they wanted $35 to ship. They claimed that there was no cheaper method when I questioned the shipping cost. That should have been my first reason too walk away.
just so I understand, you bought a fake counterfeit speedpassion esc and are pissed that speedpassion would take it back or give you your money back, well ok then. and yea, shipping from sp is stupid. I guess they don't have if it fits it ships.

What are your thoughts on the Reventon pro and S ( I have both) for 1/12 scale racing? I'm only running 21.5 non-boosted for both indoor and outdoor racing.

My SXX decided to take a dirt nap.

I really don't know anymore ! Apparently the LED box is only for the Stock version, but it is on the Speed Passion Reventon S page & also describes loads of things it will do ! I got hold of a LCD box last night so will give that a go. RCMart have offered me a refund but I want to give it one last try. These toy cars are a lot of hassle !

Now SP wants me to send the ESC to HK to have it fixed. The expense of sending it back to them with a trackable shipping service will exceed the value of the ESC.

I can't think of any ESC's on the market that would require an ESC with a Firmware issue to be sent back to the manufacturer for repair.

How can SP honestly expect their customers to keep paying for repair costs on ESC's, when the failures are obviously caused by their easily corruptible Firmware?

Ridiculous!

I didn't say they were counterfeit, I said I had a feeling they were.

So, after 6 months of jacking around on this Dennis at SP Customer Service offered me a $19 credit on my next SP purchase. I told him he could stuff it where the Sun don't shine. I would rather flush my money down the toilet than buy another SP product.
