I have one in a xxx cr also, love it. Fits well, runs cool, is very easy to program. No blinkity lights or PC needed. The timing and DRRS or whatever it is opens up all kinds of performance that I am still exploring. I'm at least keeping up on the straight with the other guys while using lower gearing in stock, I rip on the jumps and off the line.

Adam and Shawn are very helpful. My next purchase is a no brainer.

Oops, wait a minute, I might be racing against some of you schmucks.. NO, DON'T GET ONE OF THESE. YOU DON'T WANT ONE!!!!

There is a new software version which caters to more Off-Road and 12th scale On-road that was released in the US today.

The DRRS has a softer lower end launch what really assists the Off-Road crowd.
Dirt Oval? Now your talking...

Hey Guys,

Speed Passion is distributed in the US by Adam and I here @ Schumacher USA.

Ask your local shop to get some in for you if they haven't already - we're easy to deal with

In addition to the GT ESC, we also carry Speed Passion Brushless 17.5, 13.5, 10.5, 8.5, 7.5, 6.5, 5.5, 4.5, 3.5 and 2.5 motors.

Sensor harnesses, ceramic bearings and kool gold motor tabs as well on the accessories side.

Speed Passion is THE REAL DEAL, and I've been driving, testing, developing and marketing BL and Lipo stuff in the RC car industry for over 5 years now (it's not as new as you may think!). We have helped the development and stand behind this brand 100%.

For Brushless offroad the feel is awesome, and the tunability range and ease is second to none.

Adam and I are here almost 24/7 to answer any and all Q's so feel free!

That's just Rationalization my friend. Ever notice how much more fun it is to blow up expensive hand built prototypes, as opposed to readily available production units? By far the best part of my job.

Glad to see this thread liven up in the offroad forum.

I just installed (last night) a new SP GT esc (w/Novak 13.5) in my xxx-t MF2. Got a chance to play a bit with the handheld setup box and do some initial driveway testing. Tomorrow is a track day, practicing for my first race on Sunday.

Can't wait to see what this thing can do in the dirt!

I'm running the GT in my B4 And B44. Very pleased with the performance and adjustability. The handset is a god send!

My only concern is the temp in my B4, which I partly put down to the J-Concepts scoopless shell. With an ambient temp of 35 celcius, it gets up to almost 100! This is running an LRP 7.5 on a high traction track.

Cheers,
Scotty P.

I was running on-road 13.5 today and the track temp was about 130-145 and I was coming off the track at about 125 degrees on the speedo.

100 degrees isn't bad at all, my avg. temp on the controller is about 115F

You missed the key word there Adrian - 'Celsius'

100 degree C is more than 200 degree F!

We ran the GT/6.5 in a B4 on a high bite indoor track and it came off the track at only 90-100*F

It was cooler ambient air (@70*F and dirt temp even cooler) but still I can't see how the system would run that hot.. 100*C?

Scotty,

I ran all day at Knox with the B4 yesterday. LRP 7.5 bonded 23/81. ESC was coming off at 40-45, motor was running around 50. Are you running the fan? Really happy with the unit. Granted Knox isn't super high grip, but there were plenty of wheelstands!

I could do with some more drag brake though. It's running on full at the moment, perhaps a sintered rotor would give a better effect???
