I thought it only thermalled out to unboosted if you had 10 flashes. Very suprised I got 9 flashes though as my settings aren't outrageous?

My settings for a 13.5 GM were 3,6,10,0 and I tried 3,4,8,0 but it made no difference. FDR was 6.5

Any help much appreciated
It's possible the SC is getting bad info from the motor temp sensor. Try switching lipo cut off to zero flash and this will disable the over heat safety. If the stoppage is due to over heat then it should go away.

I did try 2 motors - happened on both (both GM). I think I will call LRP

Thanks for the tip

If you use full boost, you will be closed to mod speed.

Unless you are running same fixed gear as 27T ?
so,
what numbers should I choose for the settings 2 and 3?
Do you have a starting point?

my gearing is 81spir and 24pinoin
should i chance it or?

thanks

Make sure the plug is in proper position, and if you have a receiver pack, try using that plugged into the receiver and turn it on with that. It could be that the BEC failed and so it should still work using a receiver pack. Happened to me with a New one out of the box awhile back.

All,

I'm new to the LRP products and wondered if you could answer a couple of newbie questions?

Can the SXX Stock Spec V2 software be loaded onto an SXX TC Spec V2?

Is there a difference and is it worth doing? I mainly run 21.5 or 13.5 so every RPM counts

Cheers

I assume you mean can you load firmware updates for the stock spec via the LRP USB bridge device ? If so, the answer is no, the updater will recognise it is the wrong firmware for that ESC.

Default wiring question

i know that the middle or B wire is important but is it also important on the SSX Stock that the A&C connection must go accordingly on a LRP x12 or can this two be interchangeable?

Anyone have a good starting point for the SXX SS V2 and a D3 13.5 in a Xray X10 WGT. Gear ratio right now is 36/88, tires 55mm, and the battery is a Reedy 6500 65C 1S. Track is 36x70, Ive been try for months and the car is just plain slow, should i switch to a X12 13.5? Thanks
