FYI, LRP has announced the SXX Stock Spec (for stock classes) to be released soon ...
The Link does not seem to work OK so here is a copy of the text:
LRP Column / November 2009
The winter season is just getting started and LRP is ready for all you stock drivers and fans. LRP has developed new and exciting products for the stock brushless racers with the SXX StockSpec speed-control and the Vector X12 StockSpec motor which promise to raise your racing pulse!
2nd out of our new StockSpec line will be our new SXX StockSpec speed control. This is a complete new, uncompromising, design which carries only few genes from it’s predecessors! While its easy to identify that the new SXX StockSpec shares the platform with the Worlds winning SXX TC spec, its internals are a complete re-design with the requests of the stocker racers in mind.
Many new and exciting features were designed by my engineers and we went through multiple hard- and software updates during the long development phase, we clearly took our time and this will result that the SXX StockSpec will set another benchmark in brushless stock racing!
To explain the idea of the development of the SXX StockSpec speed control, it’s important to understand the stock racing scene as a whole worldwide. To develop a product aimed specific to the stock class is today very difficult as the racing scene has changed significantly over the last 2 years. Today there are many brushless stock racing classes with different numbers of cells, different cell technologies, different number of turns and of course with different requirements for On- and Off-Road classes. Because of that, developing a specific stock spec speed control that is able to cover all those classes and rules is a massive challenge. Therefore I am extremely proud of my R&D team, that not only has developed a stock speed control that is able to lower your lap times significantly in the hugely competitive stock market, but also developed a speed control that is so flexible and adjustable that is able to be perfectly setup and be as optimal as possible for any kind of stock racing. The motor profiles are now separated in two independent mode’s, which we call ADPC Dualmax, with adjustments for “Feel” and “Boost”. This gives you the perfect flexibility, while still easy to set-up and understand, for all the different racing classes.
But that’s not all there is inside the SXX StockSpec…
The revolutionary and exclusive “TwinBEC” operates down to 3.0V which means that there is no need for a receiver pack with even 1S packs! It’s high-technology switching design works more efficiently at all input voltages which also results in lower working temperatures. The new Internal-Temp-Check-System 3 has been further optimised and now not only displays the speed controls maximum operation temperature but also the maximum temperature reached by the motor.
