You need to register the software, see help menu, cost 10 Euros?.
Then you get a proper licence for it and the message you get now will be gone.

If you run 13.5T you may want to try some of the hints in this GM forum.

Well, in my opinion in software it is quite simple written Brake Min, Brake Max and autobrake ANd there you have numbers, higher number, stronger brake Everything is written when you push "?" next to option you want to change nin AS Genius Soft...

Hi Martin,
Is it possible for me to send in a motor that's blown and have the guys at GM look at it ?

I didn't get it over 85 degrees at any point, but I've opened it up and it looks like there's a burnt winding and the epoxy holding it together has melted inside the can.

Just to be clear, I'm not blaming the motor, but I'd like to know what I've done wrong with it (speedo settings, gearing, etc)

This is a 6.5 Star motor by the way.

Thanks
Chris

If you copy the "Mode 8" settings over the "Mode 3" settings I guess you will need to select Mode 3 using your transmitter AFTER you have set up the new "Mode 3" programming...

Martin says in the Stock racing HOW-TO post that Mode 8 is too hard on the motor for stock classes.

actually no.
you select mode 8 by transmitter.
import into the computer program
change the mode in the computer from 8 to 3
then upload this setting from the computer back into your esc
after that your esc will allready be in mode3 so no need to reselect after that.
you can tell by counting the beeps after starting your esc.
