Adam or Shawn,

I have a few more questions for you guys. I hope you don't mind.

1. The GT supports sensored or sensorless motors, does the speed control come with a sensor wire, if so what is the length?

2. If the GT does not come with the sensor wire, do the SpeedPassion motors come with it? If so what is the length?

3. Do all SpeedPassion motors come with Sintered rotors, if not which do and which motors don't?

4. Will you guys bring in the 90mm sensor wires that speedpassion sells?

Thanks a bunch.

Steve

Skypilot, I told you to go home man


Steve;

The speed control does not include a sensor wire, all of the motors come with them.

It will run sensored or sensorless motors, it will also run sensored motors without the sensor cable (I did it with my 13.5 this evening)

The sensor cables are 90mm (look at the pic of my car to see it), we also have optional 190mm cables for off road applications.

All motors are sintered if they are purchased through Schumacher US, if you went with anyone else you stand a good chance of having and earlier release and I don't know what those rotors might be?

We will also sell the 90mm sensor cables by themselves in the coming weeks (they're on order)

This Speed Passion Grand Turisimo ESC has got to be the easiest one in the world or atleast my world to program.

The handheld unit is so straight forward. No blinking lights to follow while you try to stab some tiny a## button.

Anyway I got mine mounted and played around with everything. Just having the handheld and an easy way to reset the profiles is awesome.

The fan seems to move way more air the the stock Novak clear ones. Reminds me of the Nexus Racing fan I used to run. They move the air pretty good wired stock. I know some guys wire the fan straight to battery power which spins them faster. I'm not sure this fan even need that. Also from the some of the early input many guys are not even using fans.

Has anyone ever "accidentally" run a Sphere or a GTB or a SP GT without the coffee can cap? Why is the cap there? I know "warranty blah blah blah", but would a 13.5 run efficiently or even at all without the cap? Novak said at one time I think that it helped reduce esc temps, but my esc never gets hotter than 100* running a 13.5 and a10.5 on carpet/foams . . .just wondering ..

From my understanding the cap is there to help keep the incoming supply voltage up during huge current spikes. Even mild BL motors like 17.5 and 13.5 can draw a lot of current on start up. This current spike drives the pack voltage down...especially late in a run of if you run utill you dump.

If the supply voltage gets too low the gate voltage for the FET transistors gets low and bad stuff starts to happen.

The cap also helps keep your speed control's BEC voltage up so you dont lose power to your rx and servo under the same high current drain conditions.

So...do not remove the caps

Hi all,
just got a couple of questions regarding both the Fegaio and the GranTurismo ESCs.
Do they handle lipo?
Do they have some kind of lipo cut-off feature?
Thank you.
Mattia.

JB or as Doug calls you "parts box".....your purple wire makes me happy

Now I was running a speed control back in the day (one of those antique brushed only ones) and I did a bad solder job on the cap and it came undone while driving and it was that first speed control from that particular company I EVER blew up, and I ran assorted different models for 10 years from them.

I believe the instructions say the fan runs at battery voltage connected to speedo, no need to hook it up direct.

It does, I don't remember verbatim what it says, but it's something to the effect of that same voltage of battery power.


Verbatim from the manual.....

The voltage of fan socket on the ESC is equal to the voltage of the battery, it is directly supplied without any regulation, so please keep in mind that the voltage of the batttery CANNOT over the voltage limit of the fan.
