You read back and lots of people have talked about them in this thread. I won the Snowbirds with them last year, I also won IIC with them, Larry Fairtrace won Snowbirds with them this year with me in 2nd. One of the best batteries on the market by far.

And just FYI they do not make a 7200. They were 7000's and now are 7500's that just came out.

if one gets the usb link, is the program card still necessary? also, are VX-1 's selling like hotcakes or is there a supply hiccup? when do you expect for them to be in stock?

The link is only for updating software in the box/speed controllers. You still must use the box to make changes.

Not for a long time. 3.3 was tested for about 9 months before being released and ROAR legal. 4.0 was just sent to the Modified Factory drivers a couple of weeks ago.

ProMod got the first answer correct for you.

VX1's are selling like hot cakes and there is a shortage of the. I will have a large order of Blue and Orange ones next week but was told by the factory it may be 3 months on titanium ones.

Here are my settings for 13.5t blinky;

S1-blinky
S2-S6 N/A
S7-off(drag brake)
S8-off(initial brake)-not sure what this does, any insite?
S9-2K(brake pwm)
S10-Level 8(was running 10, but once in a will, from a stop, the car would hesitate upon trying to accel., turned punch down, problem still there?)
S11-8K(pwm)

This was with firmware 3.0. Just loaded 3.3, going to use same settings and see if there is any difference.

To expand on the problem I have with the car hesitating, its like the locked rotor detection in kicking in, it will not do it all the time, it launches off the line fine. Does it mostly after a spin out or shunt, maybe the car is rolling backwards? If anyone has this same experience, please share what corrected it.

I do like the esc, very smooth, almost too smooth, sometimes the car does not seem fast, but the lap times show otherwise.

Anyone know why the VX-1 Titanium is the only ROAR-approved ORCA 1S ESC?

Assuming the internal workings are the same, why would the color of the ESC be involved?

Thanks in advance.

I am wrong...Titanium was ROAR legal with 3.0 software...But, Titanium, Orange and Blue are legal with 3.3 software...Bizarre!

Just wondering, how do get the IR value of the battery?
I got the IR values from my Hyperion charger (not calibrated).

Also the values are different, depending on the amount of capacity you manage to push into the battery.

How do you measure it properly?
