2 seconds is alot, when 0.018 seperate 1st and 2nd here at our track.
Look at F1, Indycar or any other real motorsport, 2 seconds is a lifetime there!

Hi,

I'm probebly the 100st guy who asks for a 422 setup, but here is my question:

Does anyone with experience with this ESC has a good start setup or a suggestion for a 168m long (so you can call it small) outdoor asfalt track? I drive a 2S Lipo with a LRP X12 13,5, but a setup for a Speedpassion 13,5 is also welcome!

Thanks from a guy who is very happy his big ass ESC fits his car:

Would suggest starting with the guideline settings in the pdf document for the supercharge software.

No its a normal Xerun 120a Sd or 60a SD esc just in a different colour casing.
There was also a purple version if not mistake.
So far there has been black, smoked and the blue spirit from what i have seen.

Which would perk my interests more than 2 seconds. Not to dismiss the driver just interested to see a bigger gain with the ESC of the month.
Unless 2 seconds refers to his lap times then I would be !

Thanks Hobbywing

Yes. He did very well against a field of very capable GT2 drivers. The power delivery is much smoother than tekin. It makes driving easier. It is a great system that I will get.

I tried setting it to 323 and it did the same thing went back to 205. I have tried loading it upgrading applying it multiple times it always goes back to 205. The other esc's i have done have not been an issue 422 loaded first go but this one is doing my head in
Any ideas anyone ?
I have the same problem. I just received my 60A xerun and LCD. I upgraded firmware on both LCD and ESC and the 422 firmware wont save itself. It keeps reverting back to 205. Please help me someone. I cannot get the extra supercharger features.

Did you try reloading/installing the software.
With previous versions to make sure the firmware update was done we had to update twice.

a few things that where requested by guys have been added in the new revision of the software.
Now when you connect the lcd programmer and esc it will show which firmware version is installed on the lcd and esc..
Also a few bugs have been sorted.
