Can anyone explain why you have to gear the GM speedo so differently to other manufacturers ESC

When running sensorless the motor makes less RPM so more gear is needed to compensate for the loss of speed.

The gearing with the GM-Speedo is only longer compare to the LRP/Nosram.
The GM-Speedo does run the motor in the best efficiency, that's why our drivers do have more power and run time.
Also this is on of the reasons you feel nearly no difference between using sensors or not.

The programming wire must be connected.

The programmer must be in the receive mode with pushing the middle button in the right menu.

Push the set-button on the speed and hold it and plug in the drive battery at the same time. Hold the button, until you can hear the first beeps of the IDA-mode.

During receiving the datas on the programmer, the programmer LED does flash.
After receiving, you get a message on the programmer. Now you can modify the values and you can send them back in the send mode with the middle button again. The LED is flashing again and the speedo will make the confirmation beeps.

Make this several times and check all values, so you get used to it.

We are doing a new PC software at the moment, which does the programming more easy. I think we will do it to the web page next week.

Perfect. Should be the same as in the instruction, just the instruction is longer, maybe to long.
But it's good, that it works now.

I have a friend with a 95 speedo that has a problem. Brushed works fine, sensorless if fine but add a sensor lead and any motor coggs bad or will not start until you push the car? any ideas

I have 2 95's and no problems

Maybe a bended sensor plug pin or a broken sensor wire.
I recommend driving without sensors anyway. Our drivers do not feel a difference. Driving without sensors is most times more efficient.
But check for bended pins, because this may cause other trouble, too.

Hi I'm putting a GM95 in both my TRF501X buggy and TRF416 TC do I need to run a fan/heatsink on either? It's a 5.5 in the 501X on 6 cell and 4.5 or 3.5 in the TC on 5 cell

Thanks Alan

maybe adding the additional top heatsink would be quite good for both classes. it weighs only a few grams and brings down the temps quite good

this is what i use in the tc (no fan) with 3,5T and less.

the genius 100 is splash proof ... you may not worry too much about making it waterproof if the track is only a little wet, but playing "cruiseship" is not what it has been developed for :-)

Many thanks for the reply, how do you stick the heatsink to the speedo? I have a GM heatsink

Thanks

Hi Martin,

I recently get a Genius 100, and God, the genuine heat sink casing is so big !
I was wondering if it was possible (and easy) to change it for the Genius 80 Purple case (2894.2). Of course I will install the optional heat sink over and also a fan to balance with the thermal exchange loss.

Do you think it's reasonable?
Hope I will have one of your "Fast as Lightning" reply !

Cheers
