4.5T uses sintered rotor, all others bonded.
When comparing technical data 4star is more like 6.5t. Also when in track 5.5 is way than 4 star

The TC spec of Sphere comp. has different part no. 80750. We are told here in Finland that TC spec will be available in January.

From what I understant it is very different from the originals internally.
The main changes are it can handle more heat and it has different touring specific profiles.

Check out the .pdf catalog on the LRP website. It has all the info you need on the touring edition.

burito,

Question 1.....which version of the Sphere Cop ESC would you recommend for 12 Scale......the TC version or the 2007 Version??

Question 2.....Which new sintered rotor would you recommend to start with??

Best Regards,

Alex Cortez

@Alex C: for 1/12 the Sphere Competition "2007 Edition" is your only option anyway...
It's far sufficient for 1/12 and "TC Spec" version of the speedo has heatsink & fan pre-installed and does not fit under 1/12 bodyshells!

We do only have one version of sintered rotors, not sure what you mean... We're not sure yet anyway if sintered is the way to go in 1/12, there and in OffRoad the bonded has great feel. In TC it's quite clear that sintered is the way to go, but in the other classes it's a question of drivers preference also.

Hey Alex,

I am not Reto, but I will try to help out.

At the indoor champs we ran the 2007 spec speedo in 1/12th and it was very good. If you are looking to go brushless I would wait a few weeks for it.
As for motor, I have run both rotors in 1/12th scale and the bonded rotor in a 4 star is a good combo.

Hope this helps, Walter

I have heard that the Touring spec one is completely different but is the 07 that much different than the old comp. I picked one up off ebay brand new for 100 bucks and am wondering if it can be sent in for a software upgrade or if I should just get a 07 or touring spec eventually.

Sorry, missed that one... The only way to check the winding, if sticker fell off, is to check the inductance! There's no other way to determine the winding unfortunately. If you got an LCR meter I can check tomorrow at work for the approximate readings for each wind.

A software upgrade is unfortunately not possible. But none of the speedos only variies by software, there is always hardware changes involved as well.
The basic plattform on SphereComp and SphereComp "2007 Edition" is the same, but still there are few components which are different (mainly to make it bulletproof under all racing circumstances). The s/w is quite a lot different, as explained earlier, mainly for better feel for all classes, magnets and winds.
As you already know, the "TC Spec" version is a lot more different in hardware.
