Today for some reason the on/off switch stopped working on my Reventon R. Is there a where in the US I can order one from?

Hi Mike,
It looks like the setup sheet is from the Revention program but pretty much what you need is there. Mod is fairly simple as over timing can be an issue.
You can use the setup on the sheet and gear accordingly for the 5.5T motor.
Boost start RPM should be in the 6K to 7.5k range. Key is not to add endbell timing.

First you will want to use the stock 1 hybrid boost software if you're running 12th mod. Second, we've been doing a lot of testing in the past two months with this software, specifically in 12th mod. Thanks to a number of the team SP USA guys such as Rob king, Bill Syder, myself, and the dyno help of Dan Cook we have found that our hybrid boost software has a lot of unique properties. In essence the engineering language in the instructions can make some of the setup concepts more difficult to dial in than anticipated. A starting 12th mod setup would be this:
-50% HB Power
-INSTANT Slope (greater throttle linearity, less slope equals softer bottom end)
-HB Max OFF (this is the turbo timing function)
-3000 RPM HB Start (this value determines the start of HB Power)
-4 DRRS (affects mostly the mid-range throttle feel)

Your DRRS setting will be effected more by the deceleration to drag-brake transition feel that you want in my opinion than the increase in mid-range acceleration that this setting seems to mostly affect. If you want more power turn up the HB Power setting. Hope this helps.

Solara- When will the Blue ring rotors be available again? They are out of stock for awhile.

Thanks.

Default No Brakes

To anyone that can be of assistance.

I'm new to ep touring cars and I am running the Reventon pro esc ( not the new 1.1 ) and it seems to me that this esc has absolutely no brakes what so ever. The track I race at has an extremely tight hairpin coming off the largest straight. I've taken all the drag brake off the esc ( as this heats the motor up ), and have the initial brake set at 100%. The class we run is 10.5 turn in blink mode. Does the newer version of the pro have a better braking system. Or is this a inherent problem with the speed passion esc. If I can't get this sorted looks like I'll have to try another brand of esc.

Thanks for your help in advance.

I know this may seem weird, but set your "reverse force" to 100% (that's if the speed control has that setting). Even if you're using forwards with brake setting the "reverse force" does have an impact on brakes when the esc is in blinky mode.

Cheers
Rob.

as my reventon pro suddenly died for me and i needed a new esc, driving in 17.5stock i bought a reventon s as they are quite cheap, and got a doa, motor doesnt work at all, tried different sensor wires, checked solder connections, recalibrated.

will contact seller on ebay regarding warranty

this was my last speed passion product, 1 that just gave up without reason and new one is a doa, nice!

back to hobbywing and away from ztw made products..

Your throttle channel need to set to reverse or normal (depends on your radio's default position)...1 of the position will get the motor turning.

hello

Just loaded to the GT 2.0 the 323 software. Realy better. I have small issue/question: The brake is quite weak. Before it was in 4wd buggy and now in 2wd buggy so normal to have less brake but still compare to others it not strong enough.
The brake set to 100% drage brake 10%. The other parameters are near to factory set. Turbo and boost parameters are influencing the brake strength? It makes sense to play with that to have more break?
Thanks for any feedback.
