That is an EFRA/IFMAR rule - has been there since day 1, but it only applies to the motors. There are no rules for speed controllers as far as i know.

Yeah the new GM EVO 3 has sintered for the 5.5 turn and more cooling. That is all i know so far. The 4.5 EVO 2 is sintered anyway.

Team Orion will introduce a ESC very soon as far as I know.

Hi
Anybody knows what's de difference between the genius 80 and 95? From the specs sheets they seem pretty similar... Except in price

Im thinking in going to brushless, but cant decide between the new Lrp and GM 80...

GM 95, nothing else !!! gm80 is very good also but you won't be able to use very "violent" motors, such as a 4.5 novak , etc.

the 95 is available for less than 200 euros on ebay, from germany.
can't wait to test mine !!!

you won't regret it, i just have not read anything bad on the gm speedos.

Well it seems that it wonít go into the program that I want it go.

I wanted to adjust the drag brake, so I have to adjust program 3 (I think) form stock 0% to 30% drag brake. You have to count flashes of the led light.
For instance program 3 is 3 red flashes (I think, Iím not at home to check) but mine never does 3 flashes.

I am planning to get the interface from GM but I canít directly buy it from there website , they claim itís because of deals they have with stores in the Netherlands.

for 3,5 and 3,4T motors you need a Genius 95. But even for 5,5Ts the genius 95 has advantages.

the difference is the current the esc is made for. Genius 80 hast 80A the 95 has 95A.

Yes, basically the 95 can carry more current. I ran a bonded GM 4.5 at the Euros with a genius 80. It ran it - just, but is right on edge. That was with IB SHV cells, i suspect with WC cells the 80 would struggle.

They aren't the easiest to program, but with some practice you can get it right!!!

nope the site is right, take a closer look and you find this

Genius 95

Dauerstrom (bŁrstenlose Motoren) 95 A <- current
Max. Motorstrom (10 s) 190A <- 10s current

Genius 80


Dauerstrom (bŁrstenlose Motoren) 80 A
Max. Motorstrom (10 s) 160 A
empf. Motor: brushless >=5.5 T <- recomended motors

If you look at the German page the Tech info is correct - however, if you look at the English version it says that the G95 has current as 70A and Max current as 140A. Suspect these might be the Genius 70 specs!!!
