When you say that are you referring more to a car running 13.5s? But the GT really is more the 10.5/Mod ESC?

Also if SchUSA is distributing them will warranty work also be sent through SchUSA?

Looks great though!! Speed Passion and Core 5000 Lipos!

Tim:

I've been told 2-3 weeks from ordering to delivery. This will be the first delivery of for-sale product from them though, so I'm just passing their words along here. The proof will be in the freshness of the pudding.

Pricing isn't completely finalized yet, but it will be competitive with the other racing BL products already out. If things go like they look like they are, the mid-level ESC and the 13.5 and 10.5 combos could be a particularly awesome value.

Nexus:

The Mid-Level ESC is rated for the "stock equivalent" 13.5 and 10.5 motors. It'll do more than that, but that's how SP is directing the marketing/promotion of them. The GT will be for the full line of stock/mod motors - basically a "no limit" ESC.

Warranty work - no answer for you there just yet, but the procedures will be discussed along with final pricing very soon.

Speed Passion + Core 5000 Lipos = happy drivers!

the gearing jaybee posted is the gearing WE both use for the novak 10.5 on foams, we have been asked many a time what motor we were running, if it wasn't for the blue ring we'd be accused of cheating, i recommended starting the 9.5 off at the same gearing, bad choice. i take responsiblity for it. (without actually having to pay for it).

jaybee uses 114/43 i use 96/36, this should be just about equal in gear ratios.

there are 3 different speedies. the one that you saw is the entry-level EXIGE model. this has a minimum 12.5 motor turn.
a bit more specs here:

If i am not wrong, GT should be LRP Sphere TC replica but with a little modification, in the case it's compatible with sensorless than LRP it's not.

Just to get that straight before any false rumours could appear..

The GT is not based on LRP exclusive circuitry whatsoever and we're not doing any business with them! I'd say they got inspired by our case design quite a bit (as known from the chinese) and that's about it in regards of similarities.

Agreed, I run a Sphere TC in my MI-3 and I have a GT on my desk, and at first glance they may appear similar but they aren't even close when actually looked at.
