Default Speedpassion GT ESC

This new ESC seems to be gaining a good following in on-road with some very good reports on performance. Anyone using it in off road?

Cheers,
Scotty P.

Camshaft and myself are running them in 2wd buggy... it's working great. Smooth, and runs ice cold. Temps after a 5 min race with a Speedpassion 6.5 were in the 90-100* range both esc and motor. Pretty impressive...

Sounds good. Glassdoctor, can you post a pic of your install?

Ideally I'd like to mount it with the row of posts across the chassis, but I think the GT may be too long to do this @ 44mm.

Will do, but right now I have my stuff all jacked up... testing another setup this week. (Running one of my old Mambas with the new software update and Speedpassion motor etc)

Maybe I can get a pic of Cam's Academy car if he's at the track tomorrow....

You can order the Speed Passion gear through Schumacher USA. They are the importer for it.

Im currently running the SP GT speedo in my Academy GV2. Very nice speedo. Tight fit in the narrow chassis though.

beeanner - Thanks for the pics! I figured that's how it would need to be mounted in a 2WD. I see you're running without a sensor wire. Are you using a sensored or sensorless motor? Keen to know if the GT can run a sensored motor, minus the sensor wire.

As far as availability, I know Stormer carries them.

Cheers,
Scotty P.

It can run sensorless motors and sensored motors with or without the sensor wire... in fact, this controller is a "hybrid" as Shawn P. says... in that it uses the sensors in low rpms but switches to sensorless mode at other times. That allows the esc to do things sensored systems can't, like adjust timing on the fly.

The reason there is no sensor wire on mine is because im currently running brushed motors. I know, I know, get with the new technology. lol.

Brushed! Cool. Is there nothing this speedy cannot do? How does it run with brushed motors? Do you still get a good level of adjustability via the programmer?

Looking forward to getting mine next week!

I'm currently running one in my cr w/ a 13.5. This speedo is awesome IMO. Dropped the lrp 07 spec for it. They where both great don't get me wrong. But the SP is so easy to adjust and I could easy make it feel the way I wanted.

I have one in my XXXT MF2 Dirt Oval Car, I'll try and get some pics this weekend.


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.
