If i set 30║ in boost timing, and 25║ in turbo timing, when im not going on full trottle, im using 30║ always, but when i go on full, i get 55║? or how many its the limit? i read 46║ but im not sure

sorry for english, and thanks
same as you get maximum timing on motor brushed motor, when no load.

and for now Brushless 60║ is possible.

while 120║ is the both direction Timing (reverse and forward timing).
so if it's div 2 its 60║ Forward 60║Reverse.

while now Hobbywing & Speed Passion already reach Area 51║ Total Timing
with SuperCharge Method. so 9║ left.

can i flash my SP GT2.0 Pro ESC with the latest HW firmware? is it compatible with no issues?
SP seems to be a bit late in their latest firmware release or i just missed it...

All right guys I have the xtreme stock with the latest firmware! I am running it in a SC truck but I am having nothing but problems! The first problem was solved when the voltage cutoff had to be dropped to 2.8v so the truck could finish the race! Now no rhyme or reason in the middle of the race it seems as though it goes into the sensorless mode or zero timing really slow mode! I reset the throttle and let it sit then it is fine again till halfway through the heat? I switched motors and sensor wires and batteries but not sure what is causing this but very frustrating especially since it is so new and nothing but problems! It appears the green light is flashing when it does this! Any help would be great would be great!

I can see you guys are always talking about timing all the time for speed etc what about driver ability,motors,car setup,tyres,gearing and many more factors.

Its not all about timing and why i say that is that we were running the justock and it was something like 1/10th of a second slower than anything else on the track once some changes were made with setup we had the justock handle and faster than all the other cars on the track .

dont look at timing and boost only concentrate on setup as well as mentioned above.

A few questions.

Your lipo can only just make runtime? What size are the lipos? If they are a good capacity then maybe you have the SC geared badly so that drains everything.

Also bad gearing will cause overheating which would most probably cause the "crawl home mode"

No I had to lower the voltage cutoff because the esc would shut down and the batteries would still have 7.7 volts? Also I have the truck really low geared so over gearing is not the problem! The batteris are 5000 45c so plenty of capacity!

imo, its all about the motor choice and motor timing, I like the so v3 motors see to middle timing. They run cool and have great speed, it all depends on your driving style and car setup.
I can run max timing, max boost, 4k start 0.1 delay and full hot with no,issues and tons of power, but have friends who try the same with bad results, I suggest start with 75% settings and check your temps
Gearing around 32/90 to start with.

Thank for your reply, but my question its, if i use ONLY boost timing, the software will be like as a conventional modified software?

Example, with 205_mod, no turbo software, max timing can reach its 26.25║, but with 110105_MOD, with only boost timing, 30║ for example, its fixed timing as modified?

Im looking for a solution to use 30║ of fixed timing with HW, and i think, its possible with this software

@Cobra, im running in modified, our tracks has more than 70 meters of straight, its important the power to reach good times

Thanks for reply

What motor, what truck, what settings?

I think you may be asking too much of the ESC. SC trucks are heavy, and if you are runing big power in it, it might be more than the boosted stock 1/10th ESC can deal with.

well because it's Super Charged Software Thread, isn't it.
obviously talk about timing. and lots of driver ability and cars setups, out off this thread.

anyway for us it's not just about the timing,
Cob, please asked Michael , we need the RPM Log in the ESC firmware,
so we might talk not just about timing.

i bet you know what i meant.

I know what you mean but im sorry to tell you there isn't going to be an rpm log in the near future .

wow, that's is just not the same as speed passion owners told me
last july 2010, that the plan in september 2010 to release those.


So far , we are not interested with Brushless analysis, that they offer,
since it's a waste, but, were looking for

Under Load RPM Log, which is you told me already inside the
ESC Firmware for Services use, as why not double it,
such one memory for unchanged able log, for your factory services,
and the other one is for the user, so we would like to get as tachometer ,
reset able and calculate able to speed gearing, such thing
would be great development isn't it.

while other factory already, support logs in their esc, why aren't Hobbywing and Speed Passion did the same ?

none ?

hope this is been our support to all Hobbywing and Speed Passion
Users, to remind you engineer not to leave us behind.

Thank's anyway Cob & Michael.

a top level racer would not have a choice, because he has to run what ever his sponsors provides him, or finds out himself....
