Here is a a bad video I made of a new sensored/sensorless ESC and I'm running it sensorless with a Trinity N80 and at around 3:10 you will see that I went backwards and no cogging going back forward.

The good thing about this controller is the ability to handle 4S lipos and I know some of the 1/8 guys will love how this controller puts the power down.

The GT looks like one of the LRP http://www.rc10.com/enlarge/lrp80599.htm, but it only looks like it. The GT is only rated for 3S lipos and 600max AMPs. This controller is rated for 4S lipos and 720max AMPs. Does anyone have a video of the GT running? The only ESC from Speed Passion that got my interest is the Revolution-1, but it's not out yet.

i just read the directions agains, its says 2-3 cell lipo that would be 3s not 4s

maybe you made a typo??

or maybe i'm mixed up, which ESC do you have in your video it looks like a GT

It is not the GT. This one is from the manufacturer. Speed Passion is a distributor and have the products branded under their name. The one I have does handle 4S, I tired it already, but before I even go that high, I want to see how it does on 2S and 3S first. I will also run this controller on my 1/8 truggy to see if really does put out what it claims.

I'm waiting to receive price from the manufacturer and I'll be selling them. Now is just a waiting game.
