Hi guys,

I need some help please. I have just purchased a SP GT2.0 Pro ESC and ran it at the weekend for the first time in our North Island champs. First race it went fine and was really good and fast. Temperature after the race was 45degrees C. The next race at about the 3 minute mark, the motor stopped working. It smelt like it was cooked so i borrowed a friends Novak 13.5 SS motor. When i pull the trigger, it stutters and doesnt go very fast. I thought it might have been the motor so i tried a Epic Duo2 motor and it did the exact same thing. Now im starting to think its the ESC?? There is no way i have over geared it but am very concerned about it. I am not very happy with my purchase at this time and wish i had kept my old GTB instead as i never had a single issue with that.

I wonder if anyone else has had this issue and is there something i can do to fix it? I have tried to contact Speed Passion (though their website is fairly poor when it comes to contact stuff). I looked in the box and found the warranty card and i want to post that awayso its at least covered by warranty maybe, but there is no address to send it to. All it says is i must post it to King Golden Ltd no more than 30 days from date of purchase. I can not find an address anywhere - does anyone know it??

Please help

Thanks
Like the other guy posted I would check the A B C motor wires, yes that they are in order but also it has a good solid connection at the esc. Had a similar problem with a diiferent brand speedo and a really hot motor, 1 weak solder joint caused it to act that way.

Thanks. Yeah checked all the wires and no luck. I got an email back from Max at Speed Passion saying they will replace it immediately. Thanks everyone for your posts, i tried everything you all suggested.

When can we expect the V3.0 13.5 motors to come into stock?

Great, do you know if shawn already put one aside for me? (I am the guy waiting on the SA V2 ESC, a Silver edition LPF, and the 13.5 V3 motor).

Try the SP 323s software even thought it said it is for MOD motor (instead of 312s, that is for 17.5 or 21.5). Run 4.8~5 final drive (up and down)....DRRS use MAX or step down to 8 if motor getting hot (depends on the size of the track, tight or open)....speedo AMTS (timing) I used MAX 26.25 or step down 1 (22.5) just to be safe.

Your Novak motor, I am not sure it has adjustable timing...but I would use the stock setting, like 10* on DUO 2 just to start up.

I used mine a month ago with the SP black can 13.5 with no adjustable timing...max out DRRS and ATMS geared @ 4.8 per Haynes setup...car was just as fast as SPX with DUO2 or TEKIN RS pro with TURBO.

For 21.5, I would max out DRRS and ATMS...set the motor timing to stock and roll out like 48mm or so...check gearchart for gearing
